Sometimes gifts come in fun and beautiful ways. Debby Brown, friend, quilter, quilting teacher and Handi Quilter Educator. Debby is a quilting bestie, offering encouragement, sage advice and good honest opinions when asked. A darned fined quilter, indeed. I do admire Debby.
The other day Debby and I were chatting and she asked if the mail arrived. It had not. Yesterday she asked again, and my husband handed me a box. Inside a little gift, a tiramisu, a little pick me up of sorts: an adorable fat-eighth, a sparkly pen that will stay with my planner (which I love by the way. Deco-Bob thread (I’ve been wanting to try this one), Wonderfil Tutto (a nod to the article I have in the current issue of Generation Q Magazine). Did you notice that the Tutto is orange? She knows that orange is one of my very favorite colors!
Did you notice that the colors on the front of this issue are purple and orange? Oh my goodness! I totally have to thank Lisa Lauch, our Creative Director, for that. Though I don’t think she really knows that purple and orange are my faves!!
chuao chocolate – mmm chocolate and lip balm, who doesn’t need a good lip balm every now and again. And the sweetest bit: a Longaberger basket. I love Longaberger baskets and I have several around the house that once belonged to Joy. I’d own a few more, they are spendy and worth every, single, hand-crafted inch of their spendiness.
This little pick me up has a purpose and it is received with the joy in which it was intended.
Thanks so much Debby.
