Mail is flooded in and covering my kitchen and entryway. I’m eager to tell you about it and find homes so I can have my kitchen back. HA!!
The first package was quilt tops and they were from Charlet. She wrote, “Thanks so much for doing this! I have more if these work out for you. Just let me know.”
I’m sure they will work out and we always can find a home for quilt tops. Here are the two tops Charlet sent. This one is a polka dot paradise. You can’t see the best in the picture but it’s mostly polka dot fabrics. So fun! Polka dots always make me smile. It’s my favorite print of fabric!
The next one was also very nice. This one is Christmas-themed.
The next box came from…
Kelli…(not my Kelli) a sweet blog reader named Kelli.
Kelli sent some wonderful homespuns…
…and fabric goodies. I kept the bottom calico prints in the stack. I don’t have many neutrals in my calico collection so these are going with my calico collection to make my “someday” quilt.
The next box was HUGE. It came from Debbie. She was so sweet and included postage money. It’s so appreciated!
Check them out…
but wait…there are more!
There were all sorts of scraps. There were binding leftovers that I will pass on to the Cresco quilters. There were also lots of orphan blocks. I know Sandra and the group enjoy getting them as they make for quick quilts.
There were lots of crumb-style blocks. I think enough for a quilt!
The was another set of crumb-style blocks only in softer colors.
Debbie said these were quilt leftovers.
There were two packages. There was a note with one package but I think they all could go together.
You can see the next package says “Bonnie Hunter Many Trips Around the World”. There are blocks made and many started.
The last package in the box had these cute little crumb blocks that were 4 1/2″. So cute.
Debbie’s package is the type of package I completely love. The scrappy blocks make me happy. I’m being honest though…I likely wouldn’t get to it now with all the busyness with the grandkids and life so I’m passing them on to someone who will finish them. I did let myself keep one package of crumb blocks. I’m giving myself until this year at this time. If I haven’t used them into the donation box they go!
Sadly, I have to be realistic…but it’s so TEMPTING!!
The next box camer from Leslee. Her card was beautiful!
The box had lots and lots of puppets inside. The childcare kiddos are so blessed to have so many great puppets to play with. I’m holding them back until summer so we have some great goodies to play with once the kids are here all day.
Here are the puppets all laid out. They really are nice good quality puppets. I’m excited for them.
Check out this cute one with the worm in the apple.
There was a lot of fabric too…
There were orphan blocks and rail fence blocks I will pass on to the Cresco ladies.
More calicos. I did pull a couple for my collection…but honestly, I need to stop that. My tote of calicos is full. It’s time to make a quilt. All I need now is TIME.
More goodies…a book, hardanger cloth and more rail fence blocks.
Here are the fabrics that were included.
There were super fun novelty prints. These were so cute. The bananas were my favorite!
WOW…What a big bunch of fun goodies. Thanks Leslee!!
The next box came from…Connie.
There were all sorts of smaller fabric pieces.
There were larger cuts too. I saved the larger print with the cows thinking I might use it for the backing for Kelli’s baby’s quilts. Yep, I need to start them. I do know I’m making so that’s a start. I’ll tell you more soon.
There was a big bag of cross stitch goodies too…Oh my!
I loved this book. It was so cute. It’s filled with reproduction samplers from girls. I just might have to stitch one of these.
I loved sorting through all the cross stitch goodies. There were punch needle things in the mix too. I keep wanting to try punch needle again. Some time, someday I hope.
Can you believe all of the mail?? I sure can’t. WOW. Thanks to everyone who sent goodies. I appreciate your thinking of me, the childcare kiddos, and the community quilt program. Your support and thoughtfulness means so much to me.
