A Quickie RAK

I had the opportunity recently to do something nice for someone else, so I grasped this chance with both hands.

I knew Angela from Hooked on Stitches was having a tough time of late. I unearthed this fabric when packing up my room for The Big Move and knew it would be perfect for her!

I'm pleased to report Angela loved the fabric and already has an idea what to use it for. I can't wait to see what she does with it. Do pop over to Angela's blog if you would care to see some amazing finishing skills. 
I also decided to send along a little card along in the parcel. I scoured my collection of small patterns before returning to an old faithful. My grandmother bought me this book from a charity shop when I had just started cross stitching in 2004. I can't tell you how many times I've turned to it when I need to whip up a card or other small design. 
In the picture, you can see the card I made for Angela. I love making cards, they're so satisfactory. 

I think it's important to be kind, especially since so many others in the blogging community have been unbelievably generous to me. I don't think this will be my last RAK. Thank you Angela for making it a lovely first time in doing so!

Currently packing so the entire house looks like an assault course. Only three more days before my parents are off to Glastonbury and I head to Lawrence's. It's certainly all change here.
I hope you are all well. I'm just about to indulge in a lovely blog reading session, which I haven't done in far too long. Work is keeping me busy, but I thoroughly enjoy it and it will be totally worth it when pay day rolls around.
Best wishes,

What a lovely person you are Becka - that is so sweet and thoughtful. It must have made Angela's day, it is so touching when someone out of the blue shows you a kindness - bless you!
The fabrics are lovely, and the card you made for her so pretty and personal.
Sounds like I have a lot to catch up with here!
Good luck with all the changes!(which I now need to read back to find out about!)

Well you certainly show people who say the young folks are thoughtless just how stupid they are. What a nice thing you did in the middle of all your major changes. Thank you for giving me some more faith in the future!
