As one of my childcare moms were coming into the door she said, “The UPS guy has a package for you and he can hardly carry it.” After she left I thought I’d go check out the box. Hmm….It looked like it was a 45″ batting box. It was huge.
I didn’t think I ordered anything. I didn’t think Hubby did. Hmm.
I went to the garage and struggled to get the package in the door. OH MY! It was HUGE. I opened it. WOW.
Fabric, fabric, fabric, yarn and trims. Holy scraptastical!!!!
One was a bag of yarn. That went to Kayla.
One bag was lace and trim. Look at all that trim!
The bags I’m going through bit by bit. There is a lot in each bag. I have sorted and picked some things for Neighbor Girl. I haven’t shown them to her yet. I have them in a spot in my sewing room and once the project she is working on gets a to where she wants it, I’ll introduce two projects and then let her pick which one she wants.
I’ve pulled a few things here and there. It’s always fun to imagine what was made with the original pieces….how long ago they were made and where the projects are today.
There is so much I have to share. I can’t possibly use it all. My friend Connie said she wants to make Jingle Bell Square so the Christmas goodies will likely go her way. I have three Christmas quilts and for now, that’s enough…I only have three beds after all.
Mark this down as the biggest shipment of goodies that have ever come my way.
These goodies came from Lanan in Primghar, IA. Thanks so much for thinking of me Lanan. What a load of scrap!! It’s going to be fun petting and going through it all.
It’s been a day or two from the time it came to my writing this post and I am still in shock over all that was in the box. By the way…that box has been a hit with the kiddos. They’ve been playing and playing with it.
