Random Act of Kindness

What a dismal day, rain, rain, rain! My day was made brighter however, when I picked up my mail and opened an unexpected package from Paula C. I reached in and pulled out a lovely note, two scrubbers (used for cleaning stoneware/pans), and a wonderful “coffee theme” fat quarter!


I saw these hand crochet scrubbers pictured on Paula’s blog and asked her if they really worked. How very sweet, she sent me some to try! I have not tried them yet but I will. Paula tells me they are washable but I still hate for them to get dirty.


The coffee fabric is perfect for finishing the "Spot of Coffee" design (LHN) that I completed many months ago. I am thinking of a pinkeep finish on that piece, wouldn't this be a great fabric choice for the back?


Paula, your RAK was such a wonderful, unexpected surprise on such a dreary day. Thank you very much! I truly value our friendship and emails, especially your “heads-up” emails on upcoming exchanges. :)


RAK from Paula C.


My camera is still in Vermont so I am forced to post pictures using the scanner. I am heading to Vermont on Wednesday because we have sold the property :( and have a scheduled closing next Monday. It is hard to believe that I will not be driving to Vermont on weekends but I am hopeful that we will find another place relatively soon. Keep your fingers crossed, we are looking but have yet to find that perfect place.


Until next time...

What a wonderful RAK!! That coffee fabric is awesome.

If those scrubbers are made from nylon net, they are wonderful. I have a lady in my church that keeps me supplied with them. They really do work on things that you don't want to scratch up with one on those metal-type scratcher pads. The lady here also uses them to scrub the skin off peaches and they clean potatoes for baking.

Hope you get some sunshine soon.
