Hiya guys !
Guess what ? The dearest person ever - Miss Jane of the crooked road has helped me out with my wish for the spotty fabric slicker from spotlight.
Now, the thing is I have never met Jane, and only saw her blog for the first time this week - I don't think she knows me and yet she went out of her way to check out if her Spotlight had the fabric, then she convinced them to put the whole roll away and then sent me the details.
Can you believe this? Lots of people offered to check their local stores for me, blogger friends and people I have never met. Do you live in a world where people will go out of their way to help strangers, where people will spend some time making a perfect stranger happy, even though they get nothing out of it?
Well apparently I do. If you think I am surprised , astounded, gob-smacked - I am.
I (very ) occasionally read papers and hear the news on the radio and I was led to believe that we lived in a heinous world where everyone was doomed and we had no community spirit. A world where we all snatched and grabbed and got what we could for ourselves so we had more than the others.
Today I believe the world I live in is filled with fabric and felt, it is peopled by folks who love sewing and knitting and felting , spinning and dyeing and beading and paper crafts and printing and painting, crotchet and patterns and giving and sharing - this is the world I choose to live in- no it is not about getting fabric, it is just about people caring, A perfect complete stranger did something nice specifically for me today . It wasn't a random nameless faceless act - Jane did something for me and I want to say A HUGE THANK YOU - yes I have found the fabric I wanted but seriously and more importantly , if Jane did this for me , then maybe the rest of the human race is not so bad after all.
