The one thing that popped into my mind was that I wish I'd gotten fabric to send with the little purse patterns my MIL in made up. They're just so cute. Now in my heart of hearts I was wishing I could send some Moda fabrics. I LOVE Moda and would've loved to give the women some for these purses. BUT Moda is a top of the line quilting fabric and way too expensive for me to purchase for this. So I had to let that one go. But I was still a little sorry.
Now the cool part: I get to the meeting and one of the gals shows me three shopping bags of old fabric her neighbor dropped off. She asks me if there's anything in there we could use and I shrugged and said probably. Not too excited. I've gotten bags of free fabric before and usually it hadn't been used for a reason- not the prettiest or hard to work with, or something. I decide to bring it all home to look at and see if I can make any combinations. I get home, I dump out the fabrics on the floor and start to get really excited. I loved some of the colors and patterns and there was scads of the stuff. So I start to fold and cut and match and what do I see? Half the fabrics are Moda. I laughed out loud. God is so good. He not only provided but even gave me just what I'd wanted most.
