When I got home from FoQ, I had an email from a lady who'd found 12 fat quarters in a Japan Crafts bag, at a coffee shop at Birmingham Station.
Oh no, some poor soul must have lost them!
A shout-out on the Japan Crafts Facebook page was seen by 743 people, and shared 12 times! A message on Twitter went out to 1,080 followers. Surely someone would know someone who had lost the fabric?!
But unfortunately, nobody responded and I began to lose hope...
Until yesterday, when I received an email from a lady who'd lost 12 fat quarters at the coffee shop...when she described the project they were for, I even remembered helping her choose them! She was upset, and asked whether I had any more she could buy?
How wonderful for all of us that we are surrounded by a community of kind strangers whose small actions can create such a warm feeling in all of us.
Of course, I'll send the lady who found the fabrics a little something in the post to thank her, too.
