My mailbox has been busy again. I love it.
Carla who is a long time blog reader asked if I could use yarn. I have a friend who is VERY active making layettes for Lutheran World Relief and puts together shoe boxes for Samaritan’s Purse. She finds a use for all yarns.
What a treasure trove of yarn Carla sent.
These will be used for stocking hats for Samaritan’s Purse boxes.
This will be used for the layettes.
If you think I get a lot done, you should see this lady. She is amazing!! I’ve said it before and truly mean it…I aspire to be her. I talked to her mom who is 100 years old and is in a nursing home…she said of her daughter. When she puts her mind to it she really gets stuff done. That’s the truth!!
I got this bunch of fabric from another blog reader named Connie…this one from Odessa, TX. She said she has scraps but not sure at this point if scraps is what she wants to use. She passed some onto me that she thought I might be able to use…. See?
reds? Yes Please. In fact I already cut a couple of these and they are in the quilt I’m working on.
There were lots of neutral fabric too. A strip or two of them went into the quilt too.
My next box came from Sue M. She saw the post about Kayla and I sewing. She saw Kayla’s mosaic type quilt….She fussy cut some scenic fabric then sewed it together like this….
Sue went through her stash and sent some along for Kayla.
I think these will be perfect.
I saw Kayla at Lucy’s birthday party so passed these along to her. She was so happy. Our kids are always amazed when blog readers extend their kindness on to them. I am too!!
Speaking of blog readers. Kalissa was working at the hospital in the ER and a blog reader came up to her and said, “You are Kalissa, Jo’s daughter, right?” Kalissa was confused at first and then the lady said she was a blog reader.
I can’t thank you all enough for being so awesome to my family and friends in your gifting and donating. It means so much to me!! Thanks to Carla, and Connie, and Sue for the wonderful goodies that came to my mailbox over the last week….and a special thanks for your sweet letters. I cherish them!!
