I did get as much mail as usual in the last week. I’m not complaining…just saying that this post will be shorter than some of my typical mail posts.
Blog reader Elaine sent some beautiful tops. I found a finisher and these are already at her house. That was QUICK!
These are all great and closer to large lap-sized.
Rosie was doing her thing and really wanted to be involved it the taking of these pictures. I’m wondering if Elaine had a dog and the quilts had dog smells. Whatever it was, I couldn’t keep Rosie off of them.
Isn’t this one fun and BRIGHT??
I liked this batik one too. I never think to make elongated nine-patches like these.
I loved this colorful baby quilt. So cute.
Three boxes all came from the same blog reader. They all came anonymously but the writing on the address label was the same so I’m going out on a limb and saying they were from the same person.
This was the first box…lots of scraps…these will be pasted on to area quilters. I’m guessing lots of string quilts will get make with these.
Here is the second box…There was postage money included. I’ve sent out a lot of packages lately including the tops from the previous donation so postage money is a big blessing.
Here’s what was in the box…More wonderful scraps. I picked out six slivers of fabric to throw in my collection. The rest I am passing on.
People often write and say it must be like Christmas to me to get all the packages. In a way, it is but I keep very, very little. I am collecting 30s prints so I occasionally keep a few of them…same with calicos.
Check out these printed foundation fabrics. I haven’t seen these before… That was interesting.
This is the last box…
Many things in this box were packaged together…
including these fabric bundles. I kept them together as the fabrics seemed to coordinate.
Thanks so much for these great fabrics.
A note came from a blog reader that asked to stay anonymous. It had a nice note along with postage money. So appreciated!! THANKS.
A local gal that lives in the area gifted me a bag of fabric. She told me that she knew I would find a home for it all…and I will. Thanks for thinking of me Ann!
Some time ago Ann had donated fabric to us. Kelli ended up using much of it to make masks last year. Ann always has novelty prints in whatever she brings and that’s a type of fabric that I typically don’t buy so it’s a treat to see the fabrics.
A box came from a blog reader, she had a quilt go bad…a miscut, and things didn’t match up. She’s hoping that someone can make something of what’s left.
This happens to all of us at some point. Rather than be frustrated, passing it on is a good option. Something totally useable will be made with this!!
A bean recipe came from Margaret in Arkansas. She remembered that I had said I had lots of beans on hand and was looking for recipes. PERFECT. I love soup so I am sure I’ll try this.
I’ll try this and let you know what I think once I get a few other leftovers out of the refrigerator. I miss Karl taking all of the leftovers to work to eat. Now I have to eat them!! I’m learning to freeze things but it’s a new something to learn!!
That’s all of the mail I have for this week. Thanks bunches, to all of you. I appreciate not only the items you sent but the time and costs that it takes to send things my way.
