I got more things in the mail and I’m sharing them with you today.
Backing fabric came from Linda J. I put this in a box with the community quilts in the garage. If a finisher needs backing fabric, I will send this along with tops. It’s wonderful to get backing fabric in.
In fact, before I got the fabric to the garage, a quilt finisher contacted me saying she needed backing fabric and some went straight to her.
So many of the finishers provide backing fabric from their own stash or use their own money to provide it. Many thanks to anyone who sends backing fabric on to the finishers.
Marie sent a box filled with fabric and tops. My gals that quilt for Lutheran World Relief have been needing tops and I think these will be sent to them. I currently have two groups that work with Lutheran World Relief.
Typically these tops are tied and distributed overseas to those in need. It’s a wonderful cause and I’m so happy some tops will be headed to those two groups.
The Cresco Ladies were by and dropped off LOTS more quilt tops.
This box they gave to me and told me they made these with… Jazz in mind. All of the tops are baby-sized and flannel…just what Jazz loves.
They also brought these three bags of quilt tops.
Happily I got them all sorted through and a new person volunteered to take tops. YAHOO!!! Some went to her but there are plenty left. If you would like to finish some and donate them to your local charitable groups, please let me know. I’ll happily send some to you. If you previously sent a request and I didn’t get to you, send another request, please. Here is my email. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sarah sent a box of goodies…
The tops she sent are lovely. She said she has a longarm but her passion is making tops. That’s great. We can find someone to finish these and pass them on to worthy charities.
I got several valentines and cards in the mail.
Two had quilted valentines attached. I didn’t want them to sit so I plucked them off and added them to my decor…
So cute…and so appreciated.
Lynn sent a card and goodies. She was downsizing and decided to share these with me. So sweet!!
Debby in NY sent a bunch of vintage string blocks. Don’t you just love those old vintage fabrics? I know I sure do!!
This box of fun goodies was sent to me…I have to apologize because I am not sure who sent it. There was a note inside and the person signed their name but I’m not sure…Caryn is my guess but it could be Carry. Do you think Caryn?
The goodies are appreciated and I will be sure to pass them on…
There were LOTS of goodies.
The mail has picked up lately. I did a mail post just two weeks ago and I already have another one.
I have to laugh when I go to the post office and drop off packages. Last week alone I shipped out 10 packages. All things were sent to quilt finishers. I always make sure I use our local hometown post office. I have it in my head that somehow, the number of hours that are allotted to our post office is determined by the amount of mail that goes through our office. I want to keep our post office open so I make sure that packages I mail always get mailed through our hometown office. Right now, our office is only open from 7:30 am to 11 am. I’d love to keep those hours.
One day I asked the sub-mail carrier if I probably get the most packages in town. He laughed and said, “YA!”.
So, thanks to all of you who are sending goodies and keeping our post office open!!
