Cathy B. Random Act of Kindness on MIA Exchange

First and foremost I want Cathy B. to know how much I think of her for putting this together to replace my MIA exchange for the Easter Exchange on the USEBB. I want everyone to see and know that although this was not Cathy B.'s responisiblity, she saw fit to interrupt her life to stitch a replacement for me. How nice is that?! So without further ado....I'd like to present Cathy B.'s amazing Random Act of Kindness, because that is definitely what this is to me :)

Cathy tells me this design is from Prairie Schooler

She made me the sweetest fob and sent many lovely goodies for me to enjoy!

This is my second fob that I own and it is definitely a beauty! I've already got it on my favorite pair of gingher scissors :)

THANK YOU CATHY! You didn't have to do this for me and your kind, generous heart went ahead and did it anyway! Thank you so much!

Next Up: I sent a small PIF gift to Michelle my #4 person on my list of PIFs. Go on over to her blog and check out what I made and sent to her, as I totally forgot to take a picture of it :( I made Michelle a beaded scissors fob in blue swarvoski crystals with a wee silver angel charm on the end :) I also sent her pretty flower embroidery scissors with a curved end and a couple of skeins of varigated floss....oh, and I also sent a postcard from Indiana :) I think Michelle enjoyed my small surprise for her.

I also sent another PIF, but I've not heard from that secret person yet...she's my last recipient! WAHOO! Got 'em all done!

Next Up: Got some finishing to do today :) I finished my USEBB Summer Quaker. I don't want to mail this one off! And if it wasn't for such a lovely lady, I think I'd have to stitch something else and keep this one! LOL!

I've been working hard on my Neighborhood RR...it is very close....Hopefully by the end of the week I can show you something :)

Ok, dear friends...until the next time, keep on smiling, keep your head above the water, don't let anyone down and try to be someone or something to everyone you meet! I know I certainly try to do all these things and I hope it shows :)
