Ruby Lou Dolls

Isn’t it the absolute best when you receive unexpected and unsolicited presents? I felt like a kid in a candy store when I opened my inbox one day to find an e-mail from Abby of Sew Much Ado, with the fabulous Ruby Lou Doll Pattern attached.

I love this pattern, and I mean L-O-V-E. It is one of the many fabulous patterns uploaded into, and without realizing I must have featured it…a lot.

So much so, that Abby took notice and sent me the ePattern. It is those little acts of kindness that always make my day, the little gestures of friendship and smiles that mean so much. And as we start of 2013 with new resolutions and hopes of doing better, reaching higher, laughing more, and learning something new – I want to remember that it is almost always the little things that mean the most. The little things that add up to equal the sum of our life.

I admit, that blogging offers me some blessings that I might not otherwise receive. But this particular act of kindness touched me, it turned a bad week around, started my day off smiling, and helps me to remember what is really important.

And I was thrilled to see that my girls love the pattern almost as much as I do.  Thank you so much Abby!

Be sure to hop on over to her site and check out all of her amazing patterns, she has an elephant quilt that I am equally enamored with!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

    Ah yes. I love blog friends. I’ve gotten the sweetest gifts at times when the giver would have no idea what a bad day I’d had, the generosity of our little community is amazing. These dolls are adorable!!
