The facebook group email just received this.

"Hello
Monday April 7th around 12 noon I was driving through the entrance of our park in stratford, on. I spotted a colourful ziplock bag, leaning against a dog statue. I stopped to see what it was and to my surprise it was a beautiful handmade crib size quilt inside. Attached was a note , which read, Pick me up, take me I,m yours, hurry before someone else does. when I opened it up I noticed that the universe had chosen me to find this....what a wonderful surprise and my eyes filled with tears of joy and happiness. I will treasure this and pass in onto my daughter and hopefully someday she will pass it onto one of her children. I think that this Art abandonment is such a beautiful thing and that there should be many more people doing wonderful things in this world. I was so excited that I told my story to our local newspaper! My daughter and I,in the next while, are going to create some artwork and leave it for someone to find. Thank you so much."

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

Giving always feels better than receiving. And having your gift be apprectaied is even a little sweeter Smiley That was a wonderful note & the thought that you inspired someone else to create beautiful art & pass it on is very fun!

I can see how she would tear up at receiving this. Great job inspiring your community and passing it on.

I so want to do this now - what a fun idea.   Smiley  I wonder if anyone would pick it up, though.  There is a sweatshirt that has been hanging on the fence at our park for the past few weeks lol.  I think people are too "honest" to walk off with anything if they think it belongs to someone else.

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

lol  there has been one boot laying near the fence at our local park for over a month...and a white t-shirt on top of one of the dug outs...I think you might need to put a large TAKE ME sign in clear view where you live...I love the idea of using a nice clear big bag like that so it looks on purpose!
