Thank Yous are in Order


I borrowed this photo from Confession of a Fabric Addict as there is no way I can get one to capture this quilt.  As most of you know (but for the new followers) I took a fall down my stairs and broke a hip in December - just after Christmas.  I saw this gorgeous quilt on Sarah's site - gosh they do such wonderful work and I do enjoy sending them blocks, fabrics, and quilt flimsies for their ministry.  Well, those sly ladies made this quilt for ME!!  And a dear blogging friend donated this kit to them so made it even more special.  Thank you to all who were involved with this little 'secret'. 

Hop on over

And some of you may recognize this bunny from Michelle's lovely site.  What a sweetie she is.  She calls herself a Hobbit, but I think she is a magical little pixie - bestest buds with Tinkerbell and all little wonderous fairies and creatures.  On Hoppy Friday, Michelle had a lovely post on her blog The Raspberry Rabbits about Kindness and Just Because Gifts.  Well, I was a wonderful recipient of Shell's Just Because - a gift certificate for 3 months of 'The Quilt Show'.  I am waiting to open this gift up after seeing my surgeon today (Tuesday morning) and being sure I am staying home and not off for another operation.  You bet I am going to enjoy this and Thank You all at Bunnyville.

CLOSING THOUGHT

A Priceless Gift

by Helen Steiner Rice
 

Friendship is a priceless gift
That can't be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold.

For gold is cold and lifeless,
It cannot see nor hear,
And in your times of trouble,
It is powerless to cheer.

It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand.
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand.


So when you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful that he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls, or riches,
But the love of a real, true friend.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. What a gorgeous quilt. How special are your friends to make you that quilt, Sharon. I think you could be right about Shell being a magical little pixie! Hope all goes well with the surgeon and that you're back on your feet in no time! Hugs, Christine

  19. That is wonderful. I'm not surprised though since "what goes around comes around" and I often see your name in reference to nice things you have donated to help others. Hope your appointment went well and there is no further surgery required. Wrap yourself in the love of the quilt and enjoy the Quilt Show.

  21. What a lovely quilt Sharon and so deserving because you do so much for others. There is an old saying "What goes around comes around". You are a special person and friend. I hope all goes well when you see the surgeon. My son who is 44 yrs old slipped on some ice and broke his left arm in two places , they don't cast anymore so it has been painful, blessings and prayers for full recovery.
