I think I've mentioned before that my wife is a dressmaker and designer, all from home, but has been registered with the likes of Vogue. She has now wound down her customers and only does a little for friends and ex-clients who have become her friends. She enjoys the social side, as well as making or altering clothes.
Over the years she has accumulated a lot of material and equipment, most of which she decided was no longer worth keeping. One of the items was a dressmaking body, or some call it a dummy, in perfect mint condition. She could have sold this but we thought it would be nice, perhaps, to give it to a charity or something similar.
For some reason this morning I awoke with the idea of putting the body/dummy in our driveway with a sign saying 'free'. No idea why this thought came into my head.
My wife agreed so I did a sign, and placed this with the body outside - where it could be seen. I was still out front when a car pulled up just past our house and then reversed back. Two women got out and said they were from an organisation for people with Down's Syndrome, and they often put on plays. That very morning they had decided that what they needed was a dressmaking dummy. This they could use for some of the stage costumes and for making clothes.
They were off to see if they could get one anywhere for the charity! Then they saw the one in our driveway - their wishes had been met! They were lovely, genuine people and said we should come along to their next play performance.
I always get a kick when this sort of thing happens and it strengthens my belief in synchronicity, telepathy and how we are all inter-linked.
