Lately I got a some of NICE things in the mail. Last week I got this lovely charm pack that I won from Quilt Taffy.
Then today, I got this envelope in the mail:
Quilting Lodge" I won these lovely fat quarters. They were tied with what I thought was a thin ribbon, but is actually tiny fabric trimmings. (an idea to remember!) The one on top absolutely sings to me. The giveaway was from the Quilting Lodge but it was hosted by Quilting by the River. Two great things that go great together (the Lodge and the River. )
Then there was a box that I was totally not expecting. It had several things in it but the thing that made me dance and go SQEEEEEE was this:
I am not going to name the person since this was done as a surprise and I don't know how she would feel about the disclosure. What I can tell you is that this was a thank you for something I did. I really didn't think it was a big deal. I was just helping a friend out. (and it didn't cost me anything except a few minutes of my time) I did not expect any thing more than a thank you email. (which I had already gotten and it made me smile.)
I guess my Mom was right. No, I know she was right. It is always worth it to be nice.
