Rocking Chair Quilts is a quilt shop in a small town located an hour from my home. They have great sales and service which I place online. I visit once at year to spend my birthday discount from them.
Yesterday my husband called and asked if there was anything that I would want from them as he was in the area. My response was fabric (naturally), but he wanted a detailed list, like he was going to the grocery store. A list of “fabric, fabric, fabric” really wasn’t going to help him any, so I passed on the offer.
Later I got to thinking about it and sent this text to him, “Quilt shop – you can always surprise me and pick up fabric you like or think I will like from the sale table or an assortment of fat quarters.”
No response. I figured he didn’t get the text in time or he decided I was crazy to even suggest such a thing.
Surprisingly, he brought in a package with fat quarters. He said he read my text to the woman in the shop and together they picked out an assortment of Stonehenge fabrics, which I love.
What surprises have you had recently in your life?
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
