competition and Nice things for the week

Have you done something nice just for the sake of it this week, did it make a difference to someones lives?? My nice thing was to offer a bed and warm home to a young girl whom we had never met, but she is moving to Hobart to study and came down to look for a house to rent… turned out she was beautiful girl and my girls just fell in love with her. I am sure we are going to see a lot more of Emily, well I hope so anyway and I know having a safe family home to stay in the past two days made a difference to her… I really think what goes around comes around and one day, somewhere, somehow someone out of the blue will do something nice or helpful for me too….

Second ‘nice’ thing to report is the delivery of another Snugglybug rug today for Ricky. You can see pics and read about it here and here….. quilters are all nice I am convinced….

now to the competition, did that catch your eye..?  I am repackaging 20 of the blocks into the cutest little chinese noodle boxes complete with screenprints, needle and maybe thread for those ‘stitchers on the go’ – you know, when you go for a beach holiday, dont have time to take something with you but when you get there you are having stitching withdrawals… Well I cant decide which 20 to choose… so everyone who leaves a comment listing 20 designs of their choice will go in the draw to win a little noodle box when they are ready…..then I’ll choose the most popular 20 from all of the comments.

Now, if you can also come up with a name for my little packages, you will get two noodle boxes….or maybe three….if we get lots of names we may have to have a vote….

 hugs, Helen
