There were about 6 hours of the day that I was caught up on the mail….6 hours. That is pretty darn good for me.
But the mail lady came and here I am with more mail. It’s definitely a good problem to have.
Can you imagine 4 boxes all in one day??? Well, Peggy was apparently cleaning out her sewing room and gifted things my way. All four boxes were from Peggy!!
As you can see, they weren’t little boxes either!!
Are you ready to see what’s in box number one?
Here it is all laid out….
There were lots of bits and bobs that were leftover from projects. I package those up and will send them to the Cresco ladies.
I think this may have been intended to be schoolhouse blocks but I’m not sure.
Check out this tiny little basket blocks. So cute. There was no pattern included so I can’t tell you what it was.
There were many of these blocks….
…and a stack of fabric.
I pulled the fabric and will add many of them to my Hawaiian Sunset quilt.
The next box was just as fun and the first.
All of these fabrics seemed to coordinate.
I looked closer at the note. It read, “From Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites. Scarlett Begonia”…YAHOO!!
I was pretty sure I had the book…and pretty sure I’d love a chance to finish this and donate it to one of the charity auction that happens in our area. The event raises money and then gives it to families who have medical issues and need help. It’s a wonderful cause. The family of one of my childcare families is in charge of it. They will love to get this quilt next August!!
Check out all of the patterns!! I’ll be checking these out….even Country Threads’ patterns are in the mix.
There were more goodies….
Check out this cute wall hanging.
This was a UFO. It’s an Open Gate quilt….Much of it is almost done.
“WOW, what great projects” went through my mind time and time again as I opened and sorted through these boxes.
Here are the contents of box #4.
Ow…these are great….
It looks like they were likely made from a fabric line. There are lots of completed blocks.
Spool blocks….they look great too.
This looks like it was a leftover from a project.
Orphan blocks…these will go in the box for the Cresco ladies.
BUT WAIT! There is more!!
…and a precious quilt top.
Check out that fun print in the center of the blocks.
There was this project too. Seriously, it’s almost finished!!
WOW…Can you say a lot of goodies? Just WOW!!
I ended up contacting LaNan. She has finished several UFOs in the past and then donated them on to fundraisers for an awesome bible camp her church supports. I asked her if she was interested in some UFOs. She was and was excited that I contacted her. She had recently been notified that the camp was holding another benefit auction in October and she felt bad she didn’t have anything to donate. I ended up getting these in the mail and she’s hoping to get something finished. I ended up sending the finished tops to thinking if they could get to a longarmer, she’d have them to donate if she didn’t have time to get to a quilt.
So, Peggy…your donation is already bringing joy..to first me and now LaNan. The fun thing is, the quilt goodies will continue to bring more joy all along their journey. Thank you so much for thinking of us.
..you’ll never believe…more mail has come in. If you don’t see your mail post right away, know that I have a little backlog again…
