Two or three weeks ago I was walking home from the supermarket in the early cold and dark evening, when I was stopped by Naomi whom I have met a couple of times before. Once at a local knit and natter session in one our beautiful local yarn shops and then another time when I bumped into her somewhere else, in town I think. She told me that she pops in to have a read of my blog and this made me feel a little coy really. It's kind of weird to meet people who say they read my silly bits and bobs. It sometimes feels easier to hide behind a screen just in case you might not "live up" to the image someone may have conjured in their minds.
Does this resonate with you? Do you feel like this sometimes?
Anyhow, I digress....it truly was lovely to see you Naomi and the fact that you were aware that I am planning to make a patchwork duvet cover this Spring and showing such kindness at offering to give me some of your extra/spare vintage sheets for adding to my stash of sheets/fabrics to make this possible!
So, a few days ago I noticed a slip of paper through my letterbox which said...
Like them? I absolutely LOVE them Naomi, thank you so very much.I felt like a spoilt child getting these. My goodness, I love this deeply altruistic gesture that you have shown me and such kindness from a beautifully creative person too. Thank you Thank you.
Sheets, sheets, doobee doobee doooooo
My favourite has to be the pink floral one in the bottom left hand corner, it makes me want to round round the block and howl with nostalgia and love of things from the 60's and 70's :0)
How lovely was that? I love me a bit a kindness and altruism I do. Thank you Naomi for for your sweet generous gift, I hope your kindness gets paid back to you 100 fold x
I hope you've enjoyed sharing this lovely little event in my life, all I need to do now is sit down and get cracking at making the patchwork cover. Ummm don't hold your breath it might be a while off yet!
Hope your week is being kind to you too
See you soon
