Consolation

A short time ago, Carrie Nelson decided to have a give-away; she is so pleased with Fit To Be Geese rulers that she decided to give away a couple of pair. I don't enter every give-away opportunity that comes along; it has to be something that I really want and think I will use. I'd heard so much about FTBG rulers that I knew I wanted to enter.

Turns out two other fortunate people won the pairs of geese. But generous Carrie decided to give away some single rulers -- kind of as a consolation prize. And I got an email from her offering me one if I wanted it. Did I?  Silly question.

We were away for the weekend and when we got home this afternoon, Himself went out to collect the accumulated mail. There was a fat USPS envelope for me. "What's this?" he wondered. "Oh! It must be my ruler!" "It feels mighty thick and soft for a ruler." We were both right. It was, indeed, my Fit To Be Geese ruler. And a pair of charm packs. And a needle liner-upper thinger (something else I didn't know how much I needed until it arrived!). And a Schnibble of my very own!  And a quilter's pocket journal!A most wonderful Consolation Prize.

And, friends, I am consoled!  Thank you, Carrie, so very much!

And since we were out of town, it is prolly a good thing George Clooney wasn't available to hand deliver it. I would have been inconsolable had I missed him.
