When Comfort is Needed

My husband came home from work the other day and asked me if I had a quilt I could spare. A coworker and his family are going through a tough time and it was a particularly difficult day for the fellow.

Of course I had a quilt I could spare. I offered DH a choice of three, and he chose this one.
 
So this quilt has now gone to a new home where I hope it will bring comfort to a family that's going through some horrific and tragic stuff. DH wrapped it in brown paper and gave it to the fellow on the parking lot at work, to protect the man's privacy. He was very toughed and grateful. DH and I both feel good about being able to give to a family in need of comfort.

Linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. She understands.

  6. Lovely plus quilt. Trust it will bring comfort to the family you have gifted it to. What a thoughtful husband you have and to then wrap it in brown paper and gift it in the parking lot is so touching.
