My mail continues to be busy lately. I’ve gotten in wide variety of things that are so fun to look at and sort through.
Laurie in WA sent a great box of goodies. Check out all of the calico prints. I ended up saving most of this for myself. I have plans for it. You’re probably going to have to wait a year before you see what I’m going to do…but I’m excited about it!!
Joann in CA sent two boxes of goodies.
There were two pieces of Minky backing.
Karl was so impressed with this, he had to show it off. Check it out. The orphan block is a book and it is Jane Austen titles in the fabric. WOW.
There were four blocks in total. I don’t know the pattern for the blocks and a pattern wasn’t included. There are quite a bit of Fantastic Beasts pieces of fabric. I saved this out wondering if there is anyone who makes a quilt for the library or school fundraiser that might appreciate getting this. Let me know if you are interested. I’d happily send it your way.
There were other fabric goodies too. I pulled a few of these and will pass them on to Julie in Spring Valley. There was a couple of Thanksgiving fabrics that I can imagine making great placemats for Meals on Wheels which is a cause Julie helps to support.
There were Christmas fabrics…
orphan blocks were included too.
My favorites of the bunch were these…isn’t that vintage pattern cover prints the best. I love them!!
The next box was sent completely anonymously. Every address associated with the box was mine. There is no doubt it was meant to be sent to me and no doubt the person wanted to stay annonymous.
The box was loaded with goodies…
There were two table runners.
Both were very nice.
Novelty prints ruled!! So fun…SO FUN!
Lots of 30’s prints were included. I have been collecting them hoping to make a quilt with them. To date, I’ve only ever made one 30’s print quilt. That one was Kalissa’s when she was little. I think I have another 30’s print quilt in me. I’m collecting and waiting for the day a big-time inspiration hits.
I got a St. Patrick’s Day card from a friend…THANKS!
I was ready to close out this post but more mail came. That always seems to happen.
The next package came from Jean. There were lots of goodies inside. Here are the odds and ends, a few patterns, some orphan blocks, trims and happily cross stitch linen. Send me linen any day!! All of the linen is white. I might have to try my hand at dying linen.
Jean has lived in many places and her fabric has traveled with her, even overseas. She was so impressed with the charity quilt program that she decided to let it go and donate it for someone to make community quilts with. Awesome. I love hearing that.
I also got a card and with postage money from Liz. Check out what she did on the outside of the envelope. So sweet…Thanks for the wonderful compliment.
You all are so very sweet to me. I am so blessed to have you all in my life. Thanks for the mail and happy thoughts you send my way for the charity quilt project and for our family.
