Pretty Pink and Incredibly Blessed

Sometimes a very stressful day can end up with a special moment to make everything just a bit easier to deal with. Yesterday I was beginning to feel terrible--thought at first that it was allergies but came to realize that it was more like a virus. Not good when you are trying to finish report cards and work with first graders who are done with learning and ready for summer vacation. All of these together were making the day very stressful so I checked my blogs looking for a bit of "sunshine" from my creative friends. That is where I found that I had won a giveaway on Sheri's blog. I simply could not believe it and I was so very excited. I absolutely love, love, love her triple irish chain baby quilt that she made for the moda bake shop. I was so excited that I had won it. In this state, I stopped to check my mailbox--and I found some more "sunshine." A while back Sheri did a post about "pay it forward" and said that everyone who commented on her post that day would receive a small "gift." Look what was in my mailbox today--from Sheri! (yes, the same Sheri with the triple irish chain quilt)...can you believe it?

She also made cards like this for the moda bake shop. What an absolutely creative woman she is! And she brightened my day in more than one way yesterday!
Are these cards just the most adorable!?!

Oh, did I mention that I LOVE PINK?!!

This one is so sweet....my initial graces the front.....what a lovely touch!

Now you are probably thinking what I am thinking--with all of that goodness in one day, I need to make sure I am doing some "pay it forward" in a big way. Hmmmmmmmm....I'm wondering and I have a few ideas simmering.....just in time for summer!

Yes, Sheri, I will PAY IT FORWARD!!!! Thanks for brightening my difficult day!


  1. Congratulations Dotti! What wonderful prizes. Isn't this quilting/blogging world a nice place? I am always so impressed with the kindness that is shown through our communications with each other. I know you will brighten someone else's day when you pay it forward.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I think the Triple Irish Chain has found the perfect home. What SWEET goodness from Sheri. She does beauiful work and those cards are so clever.

  3. Woo Hoo Dotti!!! Such wonderful goodies for a wonderful person. Hope you're feeling better...summer is almost here.

  4. Awww those are soooooooo sweet mom...and grats on the irish chain quilt tool!
    Love you

  5. I was so happy to hear that if I couldn't win the triple Irish chain...at least it was going to a good home!!! And aren't the notecards the cutest!
