My mailbox continues to be a place filled with more goodies than bills. I love that. Admittedly, I think it’s partly because I’ve gone paperless to autopay on as many things as possible. I did that last spring as much as possible after Kramer got sick. I didn’t want to risk any bills being late. I’m so glad I took the time to do that….but onto what’s in my mailbox.
This wonderful package came from Marie.
There were goodies for the kiddos…
..and fabric for me. Hmm. There were lots of batik project leftovers. They had me curious and I was going to start counting and seeing if I could come up with a project idea and then I had to stop myself. I was writing blog posts and can’t take another project right now!! Ah…so tempting though.
But speaking of tempting…that elephant fabric is fabulous. I love, love, love it!! Just precious.
There were white based neutrals in the box. YAHOO!! I love white based neutrals. Marie included a note that said with the scraps, maybe I wouldn’t have to cut into my yardage so soon. She is absolutely right. Any time anyone what to send white based neutrals, I’ll be a smiling girl. I go through so many!!
These two caught my eye…. I definitely would have bought these in the store. Both are a little creamy but that’s perfectly fine. I love them.
The sweetest thing of all…Marie wrote a note and in it she said, “Your blog is such a treasure, like having a friend coming over to talk and visit”. Aw…that was so special to me. Thanks Marie!!
My next package came from Robin in LA. It was a fun box for sure. I opened in and was immediately excited.
Check this out. This is all scraps and they are packaged according to color. Oh my word. I was thrilled!!
These packages will immediately go in my totes that I’m used to save for specific quilts. GRAY..YES!! Greens…YES! White based neutrals, any day and every day!
Scraps make me so happy. Seriously.
Speaking of happy. These are goodies for the kids. I put some away immediately…
and others I left out. I pulled an activity for the kids that will used some of them right away. How fun.
HERE is a link for the craft in case any of you want to do it with the kids in your life.
The next box came from Carla in Odessa. You might remember Carla has sent me so many boxes of goodies. She must be on a cleaning streak which is fabulous. One person’s trash is another ones treasure!! Carla makes that statement so true for me.
When I opened the box I saw it was flannels on the top….
I dumped it out to discover the whole box was flannels. The ladies in Cresco make lots of quilts with flannels so I think I’ll be passing these on to them.
What a big pile!!
Carver was here when the box came and he was all excited about the monster fabric. What a cute picture!!
Connie sent a card I had to share with you and it made me really laugh!
Isn’t that funny…and so true for many of us!
Thanks everyone for being so sweet to me. I tried a new system of keeping the packages straight and it worked. Hopefully I can keep it up!!
