Feeling Pretty Humble Today .........


Whilst I walk this journey of life some things just touch my heart in a way I can't explain.  I have a wonderful family and lots of lovely friends. 

Some of my closest friends are people that I met in wonderful "blogland" and my life would not be the same without them.  Some blogland friends are friends on the other end of an e-mail but that does not diminish the friendship that can exist between 2 people via e-mail. 

One of the blogs that I have visited for a long time is Illene's.  Illene lost her lovely daughter last year and in her honour I named one of my designs after her called "Lorraine's Flowers" a tablerunner, which is in this month's Patchwork & Stitching Magazine.  I have also sent the original table runner to Illene as a keepsake.


Illene blessed me yesterday with a photograph of her 1st table runner that she has completed and the beginnings of her second.  She is making these for her family members.


This is what touched my heart in a way I can't describe - I feel so very humble.

Thank you so much for sharing with me Illene.

Hugs - Fee XXX

Dearest Fiona, What a wondergful, loving person you are. God blessed this earth with YOU. Making something for someone you do not know personally is a precious gift indeed. I am sure Illene feels very blessed. I also wish all of lifes blessings to your family when your son returns home. I will pray for him in my nightly prayers. Take care dear friend. Dianne.

Well that sure brought a tear to my eye - I remember when Illene lost her beautiful daughter. And how lovely it was that you named the pattern in honor of her. Bless you darling Fee.

That was a very kind thing to do for your friend. And look how much she appreciated it.

Fee what a lovely post.
You're such a great girl and so is Illene.
I didn't know about Lorraine, so thankyou for posting... I seem to be so out of touch presently, with my course.
You're such a gem and I'm glad Illene is enjoying your pattern and your lovely runner xox
