RAOK Heaven!



I got the most wonderful and generous package in the mail today from one of my great repeat customers, Heather. Can you believe all of this fabric?! Not only did she send me some scraps left over from one of her sewing projects, but ten beautiful fat quarters too! I've always heard people say that a RAOK comes at just the perfect time, when they're feeling down about something or just need a pick me up and that's definitely true for me. A really great reminder of how caring and thoughtful some people can be.

Thank you so much Heather! I'll definitely pay it forward soon. I'm dying to get in the craft room and make something with the new fabric today but I must balance the checkbook instead.

Wow, how sweet and what beautiful fabric! Apparently Heather was my craft swap partner, and I got a gorgeous apron from her yesterday. I see my fabrics in the picture : ) She couldn't have picked out better prints, I love it!!! I will be modeling the apron and blogging about it today or tomorrow : )

Heather, if you read this, please email me, I have looked but cannot find an email address for you!

Excuse me Tonya...but did you just post about a gorgeous item you received and then not immediately share pictures?! You just violated rule #1! How dare you!

Tonya said...

Calm down, Kelci! LOL Go check out my blog, I just posted pictures : ) I would have posted them yesterday, but I was looking way too scary to take pictures and aprons always look cuter on.

Hi everyone! Tonya, I'm so glad you liked the apron! I had hoped you wouldn't think the fabric was ugly, but you did use the word "funky" in your description of yourself! =) I thought I stuck a card in the package; don't know what happened to that - sorry the sender was a mystery! Got the rick rack at Joann's (Joann Crafts) and at a local quilt store. They have LOTS of colors, so if anyone wants any, let me know. Email is heather_elaine27@hotmail.com... not a blogger yet but considering starting one. I could share some great stories from my life as a prison shrink! =)
