On Monday, 12/1, I read on Margie's blog, that she seemed to have been forgotten on the Stitching Bloggers Birthday exchange. This is what she said:
"I'm very disappointed. My birthday was a month ago and I never received anything from my partner with the Stitching Bloggers Birthday Club. I had over a year to look forward to it and this has been a terrible let down. She posted on that blog the day after my birthday that something would arrive and maybe at some point something will but I'm not really holding out much hope at this point. At least my partner received her birthday gift on time last May and she seemed to like it."
I had taken Monday off of work and was home when I read this. I felt so bad for her. To have waited practically all year and then nothing. So...I decided that Margie was going to be my next RAK. I contacted Edgar (who is in charge of that blog) and told him what I wanted to do and if I could get Margie's address.
I had just gone to JoAnn's (several times) over the weekend to stock up on stuff. I stitched her up a birthday fob, gathered up a few items and took the package to the post office on Tuesday. Today, Margie received it.
I sent her a box of DMC Floss (the Holiday Collection), a flag for her deck, a scissors, a thread counter, some happy birthday floss tags and the birthday fob. It sounds like she was quite surprised and pleased with it.
Don't forget to sign up for my blogoversary giveaway on my previous post. I will be drawing on Monday, 12/8.
