Gladdish About Surprises

What a funny thing all this technology is. I am a bit of a fan of Instagram {like everyone else with an iphone} and follow as many Tasmanians as I on my blog also.
One lady I had been enjoying is Grace Gladdish. She has a beautiful feed of Tasmanian landscapes and is a visual artists to boot.

Last week she happened to pop over to my blog and see my score of Home Journals minus the patterns. Remarkably she had a stack of the a fore mentioned Journals WITH the patterns...a little bit of wee came out I was that excited.
Generously she offered to send me some patterns as she was not a sewer herself. Literary a day later I got some lovely mail with not only the BEAUTIFUL old patterns but a hand-painted card and a hand designed postcard from her very creative self.....I was blown away by the generosity.

It really is a funny technology advanced world we live in. Without it I would have no connection to the artists and crafters in Tasmania let alone the world. I am forever grateful to be living in our day and age and have an on-going affair with technology...sometimes we fight but mostly we love each other.
Thankyou Grace...thankyou universe..we are indeed very lucky to live in the country we do and this sort of unparalleled goodness in peoples heart give me hope that there is kindness still left in the world. Keep an eye on your letter box Grace I will be popping something in there soon.
