Mail Call!!

Some goodies landed in my mailbox.  I was excited to see them.  The childcare kiddos were too.  When the mail lady came to the door with the package they were excited.  I’ve ordered a few new toys lately so they were sure it was another toy…but it wasn’t a toy for them but goodies for me instead.

The box was from Karen in Martinsville, IN.


Precuts were included in the box….jelly roll..and charm packs…Yardage too!!

Check out this cute fox fabric….
Here is a laycake.  I think these extra fabrics might be able to be used with them.

Here’s a few leftover laycake squares…Fat quarters too!!

My favorite fabrics of all were these two.  Isn’t that fabric with the little boy precious?  I looked for a label to identify the fabric but there wasn’t one.  Bummer.  Hmm.  Anyone recognize it?


Of course the treadle fabric was fun too!!

Thanks so much Karen for thinking of me.  I pulled the piece of pink fabric in the first picture as I think it will be a binding on a charity quilt one day….I pulled the fabric with the little boy too…  I’m hoping Karen won’t mind if I keep that one for me personally.  If I can find some more, I’m hoping I might someday make a boy baby quilt with it.

The rest I’ll find a charity home for.

Also in my mail was this….

This card came from Martha S.  She sent along some money and said I should use it for whatever we needed….

I thought about it a bit and talked to Kelli about it.  Then Kelli suggested  thread for the longarm.  PERFECT  I was about out of tans and creams so I put in a $100 order for thread.

I so appreciate this Martha.  The thread will help me get lots of charity quilts, and a few of my own done.  That was a sweet and thoughtful gift!

My next note came from Anne D.  Anne is from Minnesota.  I met her at the retreat and we’ve stayed in touch a bit.  You might remember she’s the one that made the wonderful center block of my birthday quilt.  She’s also the one that sent me the wonderful banana muffin recipe.  This time Anne sent a pumpkin cookie recipe.  She said the batch is HUGE (7 cups of flour-yep I’d say HUGE!!)

I haven’t tried the recipe yet but it’s on my to-do list.  I think I’ll be trying a half batch!!  If it’s as good as the banana muffin recipe, I’ll be making them often.

Thanks so much for thinking of me and the projects happening around here.  It’s so great to be surrounded by good thoughtful people.

    Wow, I love that pink fabric. I would have grabbed it too. I also love that layer cake with it’s large print fabrics. That will make a beautiful quilt with a pattern that lets one use larger chunks of fabric!

    So happy that people are taking care of you since you are so much a caregiver daily! Hugs and smiles!

    Very loving tribute to your Mom. Mine never stopped either until Parkinson’s took her. Always enjoy your blog.

    OMG, the blue flowers! I’m a blue-aholic. So pretty. Can you tell who it’s made by? Also, I can’t believe you’re not keeping the treadmill fabric and making a cover for yours!
    Any chance you’d share the cookie recipe?
