A Box of Surprises

One of my Churchwardens has recently retired from being a lawyer.

This week he arrived at my house with a large cardboard box:

He said, ‘I have cleared out some of my old work shirts and thought you would like them for patchwork.’

Thank you –  for lots of worn and washed shirts, in good quality 100% cotton and lovely colours.

He had even ironed and folded them before bringing them round.

It was a lovely surprise and a thoughtful gift!

  1. Oh! Lucky you. The only old shirts I have were from what used to be my Dads’ – maybe Ill be able to get around to doing something with them now. Look forward to seeing the results!!

  2. What a nice gesture! They will be fun to work with.
