The most lovely thing happened to me yesterday. I got a small envelope in the post with handwriting that I didn't recognise and from an area with which I have no connections. In a sea of bills, circulars and pizza shop flyers, this was a welcome change.
Inside was a cross stitch chart that I was in the process of purchasing from another Blogger. I had got as far as providing my address details and had enquired about sending payment. But here in the envelope was the chart! I spotted a little card that said 'You've been RAK'd . Enjoy!" For anyone who doesn't know, this stands for Random Act of Kindness.
The lovely Lisa over at 'Lisa’s Stitching Addiction' blog http://lisasstitchingaddiction.blogspot.com/ had popped it in the post for me. How nice is that?! :-) Thank you so much Lisa, that was very kind of you indeed.
I am really looking forward to stitching it and when it is done and hanging on my wall, I can look at it and be reminded of when someone I know only through the exchange of a few posts on a shared hobby, did something really nice for me. :-)
