The generosity of Patti is beyond belief. Look what I got in this morning's mail from her. Can you imagine??? I had mentioned in my blog a while back that I was searching for some teals for DS#1's Storm At Sea quilt. Patti emailed that she was clearing some out of her stash and would I like it? Hello. But I was thinking maybe 3 or 4 pieces--nothing like this dazzling array you see pictured!!! When I opened that package and the fabric just kept coming and coming, I was floored. I am so grateful and thrilled with all the different shades. Doesn't it just scream waves and roiling water and the sea?!? I am cooking up something for her (shhhh...) but nothing can compare to how tickled she made me today.
