Hubby is busy with harvest so getting the mail has become my task. Our mailbox is right out in front of the house so it’s not far and gives me practice walking. By the end of the day my foot is tired though….so I want to make only one trip. That almost wasn’t possible. There were THREE boxes in the mailbox! I managed to make it even with my poor foot.
I had a box with these goodies from Ellie L. She had been to an estate sale and the lady had fabric. Ellie said she doesn’t do quilts with this style of fabric but thought of me and bought it. How sweet!! I love it all. There is a lot of the dog fabric so I’m thinking I might end up backing a baby quilt with it. It’s kind of funky and kids would love it.
There was fireman and farm fabric..oh, I loved it all.
There was also a cute panel of community helpers. Aw…cute. With our grandson Carver, Mom is a nurse and first responder in our area…Dad is a volunteer fireman and first responder. He might need a quilt with this!!
There was a box from Martha too.
That had little note pads for the kids which they love and fabric and a donation for charity quilting….WOW!
I am in love with the fabric. Neutrals are my favorite fabric of all time. These are all creamy…YUM. I’ve been going through LOTS of neutral fabric lately so these were perfect.
In the mail between all the boxes was a note…It’s from my niece Jody. We both have had health issues over the last year. We message each other often. The other night I was frustrated and she was there for me. I felt bad after I got done talking to her. Who am I to talk and complain about my situation to her. She’s in the midst of chemo.
Now a few days later comes a sweet card. She is so thoughtful…I am so blessed to have her helping me through it all.
Thanks everyone for thinking of me…
