My mailbox is still blessed with goodies from all of you. I got one box and was a little confused. It was an amazon box. Hmm. I didn’t remember ordering. I’ll admit that’s happened to me in the past but nowadays I don’t order as often so I really thought I would have remembered if I had ordered anything.
I opened the box and WOW!! A blog reader, Caryn S, sent me this….…embroidery hoops and YARN!! The kids are going to love this.
The generosity of blog readers truly blows me away. One would think I’d be used to it by now but I don’t think I’ll ever be used to it.
The kiddos are going to have so much fun stitching. I told you about a previous time we did it HERE.
Ila sent English Muffins….lots of them!!
It’s not a flavor combination I would have put together but I really like it.
They came when Kelli and Kayla were here and they both snatched a package to take home to their house to enjoy. A big thanks from all of us Ila.
Blog reader Deb sent this magnet. It’s already hanging on the side of my refrigerator.
Thanks so much…it’s something I need to be reminded of from time to time…actually all the time.
This package brought me a smile….
This is from Dot in PA. She blessed the kiddos and me. There were sticker and notepads for the kiddos. There were cards and cross stitch patterns for me.
Yahoo!! Check them out. This is a series. Kelli got the April, May, June one for me and now Dot sent me the other two. Now I’m more anxious than ever to get the last chart of the series but it’s not out yet. Soon I’m guessing. I’ll have to watch Needle Case Goodies shop. (Side note: I popped over there to put get the address to link and AHHH…she has more new stuff. I had to tear myself away!!)
These little ones are only 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ when finished. So they should be quick but then again, who knows. There looks to be a lot of thread changes with them too. I’m really looking forward to jumping into one. I think I’ll start with September and the chickens. Cross stitch is like quilting though….so many projects, so little time. Oh my, I hope I get retirement time someday!!
I got a fun package from Barbara in NC. I squealed when this package came. Seriously. My Kaffe quilt is going to happen.
“I hope you can use these scraps. They are from a place where they cut and package precuts. You walk on the production floor and pick through the scraps in big bins. They usually hang the most recently cut over the side of the bins which makes it much easier. I’ve gotten better at picking wider scraps, especially the selvage scraps, it makes them much easier to use. I’ve made quite a few charity quilts from scraps I’ve gotten there.”
Oh my word. How cool would it be to go to a place like that!!?? Dangerous for me. The fabric is then paid for by the pound. I have to say I’m so VERY happy that the company sells these scraps and doesn’t have them all go to a landfill. Think of all the fun quilts that are made with what otherwise could have been thrown. The narrower strips would be perfect for a piano keyboard on a quilt. Ah…my brain is thinking.
Thanks so much to everyone who sent goodies. My mailbox has so changed. Since the beginning of the year my mailbox has been filled with cards. First get well cards and then sympathy and packages in between. There were bills and papers I had to deal with about Kramer’s passing. I’ve managed to put most of the bills to online pay so I rarely get a bill anymore. So now few things come in the mail so the packages are more fun than ever.
That fabric is so tempting to dive into…as is the cross stitch pattern but alas. I need to finish what I’m working on first.
