I’ve had some fun things in the mail lately. I’ve had a couple get well cards from blog readers….WOW. Thanks. I’m feeling better…at least at the time I’m writing this I am. Lately it’s a day by day thing. My childcare kiddos were sick last week so I’m always waiting for the next bug to hit.
Speaking on bugs a week or two ago when I went to the doctor, blog reader Ila messaged me saying – “I’m at a quilt shop going out of business sale. There are batiks. What do you need? My treat.” Oh Ila. How sweet.
I explained to her that I wasn’t feeling good and this was an especially nice treat on a day when I felt terrible.
What’s a girl so say when Ila sends pictures like this???
She said they were all half yard cuts…she also teased that I needed to wrap myself in bubble wrap to stay germ free around the childcare kids….
So just a couple days later this came in the mail…purples and neutrals. PERFECT!! I couldn’t have pick better had I been there!!
Also in the box were three giant oranges and BUBBLE WRAP! I don’t know if the bubble wrap was intentional after she joked I need to wrap myself in bubble wrap to stay away from the kiddos germs or if she meant it truly as packing. Either way, Hubby and I got a great laugh from it….especially as the wrap would have only covered one arm!! The oranges were giant and WONDERFUL! I had one every day for the next three days. YUM.
I decided to “pass it forward” and cut all the half yard cuts into fat quarters and shared with Kelli. She was super excited and needed a pick me up. Thanks so much Ila…you made us both happy.
Also in the mail a Valentines card from Mary at Country Threads. I’m so glad I connected up with her all those years ago. She’s golden.
I also got a card from Cheryl in Dallas. She always makes the best cards. I sometimes wish I made cards…it’s a time thing. I have to remind myself of this all the time. I really enjoy getting them. Cheryl also sent money to help support the postage fund for charity quilts. Oh me, oh my, postage is terrible. The donation was greatly appreciated.
I haven’t known the people I mentioned in the blog today for a very long time. It always amazes me the connections that the blog has afforded me. I very much enjoy the friendship you all send my way. The kind thoughts, words and sentiments mean so much to me. Thank you.
