Another Friday has rolled around (at least in Australia), and so that means it's time for Favorite Things Friday hosted by Mrs. Pyjamas at Quilting in My Pyjamas. Come on and join in the fun!
So with no further ado~one of my very most favorite things are quilters. As a group, quilters tend to be the friendliest, most generous, caring group of people I've ever had the pleasure and honor with which to be associated. (I was going to say deal with, but I didn't want to end my sentence with a preposition.)
As most of you know, I've been going through a tough time, but I've had so much support both on the blog and through personal emails, that I never feel completely alone. You can't imagine what a blessing that is.
I'm surprised I didn't think of putting quilters as my favorite thing sooner, but it was a gift from Elizabeth at Such a Sew and Sew, which arrived today, that brought it home to me like a thwack upside the head. Bless her. She'd read my blog article about the Dark and Stormy Night quilt in which I'd stated that I was still collecting purples. Look what she sent to me:
Eight glorious purple pieces of fabric. (My camera made some look more blue than they are.) How wonderful is that? One of them even looks like a Dark and Stormy Night. Elizabeth's gift is the perfect example of what I mean by friendly and generous. Thank you so much Elizabeth!
And thank you so much quilty friends!
