On giving things away…

When I was teaching in Ft Wayne, I complimented one of my students on her lovely blue earrings. She said her daughter sold jewelry and often gave her pieces and would I like to have them. Well, yes, I did indeed like them enough to want them and I offered to buy them but she said no… and at the end of class she gave them to me! I love them and really appreciated Joan’s generosity.


FYI: These are made by Silpada and if you are interested, you can click here to contact Joan’s daughter, Amy.

The thing is that it’s especially nice to be generous, and it’s also nice to accept generosity. I try to do both well. In this case, I will remember Joan every time I wear these earrings, which will be often!

  1. Those are beautiful. Love both color and design. Enjoy them!! They will bring years of joy to you and I’ll just bet your quilt class, patterns, books and all that you do bring a lot of joy to Joan!!


  2. Becky – the earrings are beautiful and so are you (in many additional ways).  This is a good lesson to everyone to be more generous than expected and also to graciously accept it from others.  Thanks for sharing this with us as we all need reminders of being good to each other as time is zipping by so fast.
