My Mailbox #1 of the Day

I’ve gotten so much in the mail lately and I’m so far behind on it that I’m interrupting my regular Sunday morning stash report and popping this in here.

I never know what’s in a box when it comes …things for the kiddos, fabric for me…fabric for charity…it’s always a guessing game.

Caryn did the best job ever of mixing it all up!!

Check out all the goodies on the table.  There is a HUGE variety.  No one was left out!!


Kelli happened to be here when the box came.  She immediately asked it she could have the little cutting mat.  She wanted one for next to her machine.  I said YES.

I use the red large clips for my quilting machine like this…

and grabbed them for spares should one of mine break.  Read about them on this blog post.

I grabbed the scrappy fabric scraps.  Whenever I see bags like this in a box from the mail, I assume it’s for me as most charity quilters don’t want to deal with tiny scraps.  Me, I love them!!

I grabbed these for the kiddos.  I have some small folk art dolls and these are destined to become doll beds.  I found spots for so many of the things for the kiddos.

What a big lot of goodies!!  We had so much fun sorting and playing.  Thanks for the goodies and the giggles Kelli and I had sorting through it all.

This next box came for Gayle.  What a treasure of scrappy goodness.  I adore fabric with writing on it so I had to check that out right away.


I pulled it all out…I was all smiles.


Check out those red and cream strips.  Did you see Bonnie Hunter’s new quilt Hunter’s Star?  I have plans to make it and these are going directly into my string box and will be used in the quilt!  I love when things like this happen…I see a quilt and the fabric for it magically appears.


The best thing of all in this box was the lovely note that Gayle sent.  So often I say that most of the relationships I have with blog readers are one sided.  You know all about me…often times more than my “real life” friends know.  I rarely know anything about me readers.  Over the past bit I’ve had people send me note via email and now Gayle’s in the box of goodies.  Those notes help me keep connected and I love that.  I love not being in a one sided relationship.  Thanks for the goodies Gayle but mostly thanks for reaching out and letting me see a glimpse of you and your family.  It meant a lot to me.
