Sweet Friends - a Wonderful RAK

GR&DF it is such a warm feeling on a cool Monday morning to come back to such nice comments and well wishes!! This Blog has me once again saying something I often think - how great stitching folks are!!!! AND - how wonderfully generous everyone is!!

Last week - as you may remember was far from a high point - and even over the weekend I was still head achy and just couldn't get it together to stitch - as that was just too much effort and completely wore me out just thinking about needle and floss. Geez - I sound like the biggest baby Huey there ever was!!!!

Friday Mail brought a RAK box from Sharon - a dear reader of my blatherings here at BSB. She contacted me a while back saying she had a couple of charts from my list that I was wanting. What came was a most wonderful RAK to be imagined......

As I hefted the box into my bag I couldn't believe how heavy it was - I got home Friday night and put everything on the dinning room table - a catch all spot in our house - and passed out once again. This cold thing had just kicked my butt last week and I was without strength. On Saturday morning I opened it up and found to my amazement how very overwhelmingly generous Sharon was!! Not only was there the charts but even more charts and she also included some film photos, lotion, some lovely linen and the greatest erasable highlighter - all I can say is - thank you so very much!!! This brightened up my entire blurry, sick filled week!!!

The weekend was a total bust for the my stitching - I basically sat in my chair wrapped up in my quilt passing in and out of consciousness. Rico did get me some really yummy Won Ton Soup for lunch on Saturday. He had gone to lunch with a friend and brought it back for me - ain't he sweet!!!

How about a Sweet Peach snap......


There you sports fans - I do thank you all for your kind words and comments - They where warm hugs this morning!!!!! Do stop by again!!

Take care,
edgar

Wow whatta haul! o_0!

I think this is another proof that what goes around comes around, even nice things. =)

I'm glad to hear you were able to rest this weekend, and having all those treats to contemplate must have been enjoyable (well, I'm like that when I'm sick!)

Hi Edgar, I really look forward to reading your blog each day (except weekends!) I looked at your wishlist. I would be happy to send you Finch Song by SB. I finished it last month and really enjoyed it. I'll include the little charms and button since I decided not to use them. If you would like it just let me know. Nancy in NY hedghogmom@aol.com

Glenna said...

Oh my gosh, isn't Sharon the best!? I'm glad you're on the mend--poor thing--you have sounded worn to a nub. And too sick to stitch is REALLY sick.

April Mechelle said...

Edgar, You were sent the mother load!!! So sweet of her. Hope you are feeling better!! WE have all missed you in blogland !!

Melissa said...

Sorry to hear you've been so sick last week. It was very sweet of Rico to bring you wontons. I think they are the Chinese version of the chicken soup cure!

Congratulations on that great stash haul. That was very generous of Sharon, and must've perked you right up! Feel better soon!

Cole said...

Wow, what a generous gift!! Enjoy! Hope you're feeling better :)

Catherine said...

I do hope you are feeling better. Being sick like that can take so much out of you and take a while to recover to 100%.

Wow! That's some great stash you were sent! You'll be stitching plenty of lovelies in no time!

Margaret said...

Wow, what a wonderful gift! Sounds like you needed the lift too. I hope you're feeling better -- I hate being sick!

Evelyn said...

Edgar,
So good to see you back! I'm tellin' ya, last week was pretty dull around here without your daily posts. Your site is always the first one that I read on my lunch break. Since I'm on the east coast, I imagine you have written it just shortly before I look for it.

That was a lovely gift package from Sharon. I have to say, there is no one more deserving!

Deb said...

Wow! You really hit the jackpot with that mail delivery! Looks like a lot of wonderful stuff!

Sharlotte said...

That's a really reallly nice RAK Edgar! I've never even heard of an erasable highlighter. I sure ask about them at the office supply store though. I'm glad that you are doing a little bit better.That was very sweet of Rico to bring you that soup.Sounds like it was delicious too!

Kathy said...

OMG! That is the RAK to end all RAKs. Congratulations.

I do hope you are felling better.

Kielrain said...

Hope you are on the mend. That cold going around is a real killer.

Amazing stash you got. How kind of the sender, and how lucky for you!

LoriU said...

Wow! That was so nice!

I hope you feel better soon.

Love the Peach!!!

Nancy said...

So glad you're feeling better Edgar! My goodness what a wonderful package you received! Do you think maybe the stitching world thinks a lot of you?

The Peach is just precious!

Terri(TerriBoog) said...

Great RAK! Bet you don't get told that too often!!

Daffycat said...

Whoa, that is the most ginormous RAK I've ever seen! You lucky stitcher, Edgar!

I hope you feel better soon, kiddo. It's just sad when one is too ill to stitch. ***hugs***

Bronny said...

THUD! What a lovely gift and how generous Sharon is...
Glad to hear that you are on the mend - being sick is not pleasant and can be worrying for all your friends.
Now you have to get better and fully able to concentrate on your stitching - there's no excuse such as you have 'nothing to stitch' now...which chart will be first on your list???

Babs said...

There are some very nice patterns in there. I can't wait to see what you are going to make off it ;-)

Margie said...

Holy Stash Batman! What a lovely treat in the mail.

Peach is adorable!

DaisyGirl said...

So glad to hear you are feeling alittle bit better. It sucks getting sick, it totally wipes a person out. You were RAK'd like out of this world, what a great stash builder! Peach is looking cute as ever!

Linen Stitcher said...

OhMyOhMyOhMyOhMy! Was that package incredible or what?? And knowing how productive you are, you'll stitch them all!! Maybe even by next week!!

(OK, maybe not by next week since your cold is slowing you down. Feel better soon!)

Tracey said...

I am so glad you are feeling better, Edgar! I was thinking about you this weekend hoping you were on the mend!

Wow, she is a seriously generous lady!! Oh no... hold on... I'm drooling. Ok, better now. ;) Seriously, what a wonderful surprise to open up (esp. on a day when you felt like mud) and Kudos to her for brightening your day!!
