This week I am trying to catch up with all the things that have come my way. I really thought with Covid that packages would quit coming but they certainly haven’t. It’s been great entertainment for me so thanks.
The first box had no note…just a quilt top. It came from Fair Oakes, CA. It’s a lovely top and the surprise is it is made from polyester fabric. WOW!! I am so impressed.
I’ve had a few blog readers say that their grandmas made double knit quilts and the fabric never wore. I have a group that is finishing tops that I contacted and they are going to finish it up. The colors go so nice together. I so admire anyone who could work with the stretch and give of polyester. Someone is really going to love snuggling under this!
The next box is from Mobile, AL. The sender didn’t want acknowledgement on the blog….
The patterns are going to my bedroom. I love reading patterns (weird I know) before bed. Old quilt magazines are my favorite..but patterns are great too.
…and check out this…
It’s string blocks for Bonnie Hunter’s Emerald City quilt. YAHOO!! That quilt is on my someday list.
The next box came from Mary in Minnesota, my home state.
There were lots of goodies.
The first thing I notice was the stuffed animal. Karl was here when I was opening the box and immediately I said, “Aw..she didn’t know I quit regular childcare”. Karl said, “Um, Mom. I think that’s a dog toy.”
I said, “Really?”..He said, “Yah…look!”
He was right it was a dog toy.
Rosie immediately knew it was a dog toy. It took her about 2 seconds to find the squeaker. Oh she loves squeakers.Thanks so much Mary…Rosie loves it.
Speaking of loving things so much, the Cresco ladies are going to love this bundle of goodness. There are orphan blocks and half square triangles…lot of them.
I’m passing on the white fabrics to them too. Light background fabrics are something that isn’t often donated to charity quilters so this will be a treat I’m sure.
Check out the doggie stickers. I’ll do a little “D is for Dog” thing with Carver with them. He’ll love it.
I’m always so amazed with all the things that come my way. I so appreciate the kindness of everyone.
