This past week I received a phone call from a church member.  It was an elderly woman who called, knowing that I like to sew.  She said that she used to sew quite a bit, but has not been pleased with her current attempts at sewing.  Nothing she sews now comes out the way she would like.  Because of that she wondered if I would like a box of her fabric.  messenger bag 014Would I ever?  She was so modest about her box, saying it was okay with her if I ended up just passing it on to the thrift store.  This box will not be going anywhere.  It was filled with a few knits, black velvet, purple corduroy, pink tulle, blue linen.

    I agree. I’m not sure if she knew just how much I appreciated her box of fabric!
