Our usual Fabulous Free Pattern Friday post will be back next week. I have a number of projects that I need to work on, so something had to give and it ended up being my usual posts :( So sorry.
Today, I would just like to share a little story.
Back in November, Shams of Communing With Fabric posted a picture of this pattern.
Le Mani D'Oro had posted asking if anyone had the pattern and if so, would they be willing to sell, rent or trade. Anne-Marie had also posted the pattern on Facebook. I had the pattern and in the correct size!!! Within a few hours, the connection was made, the pattern packed and on its way to Canada. The only caveat, I wanted the pattern back. Anne-Marie offered to pay for using the pattern, but I told her to just reimburse me for the shipping and that would be plenty.
When the pattern made its way back to Chicago, it was not alone. In the package was a lovely card
This is getting framed!!
The power of the internet. Amazing! Isn't it wonderful that we have a way to connect?!!
So on days when you are alone at your sewing machine, smile and know that you are not really alone. We have the most wonderful community at our finger tips who are not only creative, but so very kind, generous, and supportive. And they can make things happen in a flash!!!
Have a wonderful day!
