I am not one to moan, I think life is very short and why waste the little we have on being grumpy and unhappy. I am one of life's Pollyanne's always trying to look on the bright side. But the other day I had a little grumble - oh ok a good old moan, because I had seen a chart that was just ideal for a special event in my life and I felt disappointed that I couldnt have it there and then. Looking back I think my moan was more of a tantrum, but Im a lucky girl and I didnt get my legs slapped - what did I get .... well one wonderful lady out there has let me borrow her copy of the chart, after discussing the colour i thought looked right on the internet another stitching friend is sending me a needleful so I can try before I buy, and someone else contacted me to see if I would like to do a SAL with her.
But that wasnt the only wonderful person today. I recently admired some canvas work that someone was showing on their blog. The person wrote to me giving me details etc, but I said that though I did admire it when I had looked it was rather expensive just to try and my normal stitching seems to take every spare penny I can manage (and a few more but I am sure a number of you know that feeling lol). The lady offered to send me some canvas and instructions to try it for myself and I thought that was nice but I was amazed when all this came myletterbox morning.
I am not going to embarrass either of these lovely ladies but they know who they are and I just wanted them to know how much their generosity is appreciated. We would live if a perfect world if more people were as nice as these two.
And to finally top my day the first of what is now to become a regular monthly treat, dropped through my letterbox (along with both the above). Yep one of those lovely pink packets from our lovely Jayne at Jaynes Attic, and some lovely lovely Dinky Dyes.
