The Mailbox Shall Provide

The USPS is an amazing perk of living in the US. They provide service every day to nearly every residence (and business) in the country. For those of us who live in the rural America, the mail truck is often the highlight of the day. So last week Cindy and the USPS teamed up to make my day.

A white/red/blue box showed up from Ohio. It was covered with Cindy’s handwriting and it was stuffed with goodies. The bordered top of the postage stamp quilt was there, along with some thread, a stack of great magazines filled with inspiration, and a few more 1.5″ squares in all colors to add to my collection. Christmas in June!

Love this thread!
A stack of portable inspiration

Can you believe I forgot to take a picture of the red postage stamp quilt top before I dropped it off for quilting??? Argh…. Well, the box was lovely, Cindy did an amazing job of adding the borders. And now I am (im)patiently waiting for Ms. G to finish quilting it for me. I keep refreshing my phone to see if she’s texting me. I’m sure she has a life and has many other quilts in front of mine….sigh……

Meanwhile, I’ve challenged myself to start a new project outside of my comfort zone. I started to work on a low volume/pastel scrappy Irish chain project. I’m using 2-inch squares and I’m trying to find low volume prints. Ack — I’m not loving it right now — maybe another set up finished blocks will help me see the beauty….

    I always love receiving packages in the mail. Even though I’m usually the one that’s ordered something, it still feels special. LOL Oh, I bet your low volume quilt is going to be a stunner! Like Wendy said, I bet it’ll grow on you!

    Good morning! How nice to get a fun package from your sissy. You taught me something about thread cones today! I thought I could only use my vertical thread holder for cones but I can see yours works just fine on the horizontal thread holder as well. Thanks! ~smile~ Roseanne
