Overwhelmed and Thankful
|Fabric for Quilt of Valor backs|
sent by Karin H.
Karin contacted me a few weeks ago with the news the shop was going out of business and the fabrics were significantly reduced. She asked if I was still interested. At first, I told her that I wasn't since Marilyn had just sent me some yardage. Yet, when Karin told me the cost of the fabric, it was a deal that I couldn't resist. See the fabric that Karin brought home in this blog post.
Karin and I texted and emailed for several days, and I indicated the fabrics and the amounts that I wanted. I intended to send payment via PayPal, but Karin had other ideas: she wanted to donate the fabric to me for Quilts of Valor. I struggled with that for quite a while: it is hard for me to accept such a generous gift from someone I've never met in person. When nearly 40 yards of fabric arrived on my doorstep, I was overwhelmed by her generosity. Thank you so much, Karin!
I offered to knit Karin a pair of socks for the fabric. She shared her shoe size, and I began knitting. The temperatures in New Mexico are climbing now, and wool socks will not be useful until Fall and Winter. These humble socks are the only way I knew to show Karin how much I appreciate her gift and her friendship.
