Mail Call!

Sew...I finally made it to the post office this past weekend and what do I find but two squishies mixed in with the junk and bills.

First up was more selvages from Janet - she's been a regular supplier for a few months now and I love seeing what she is up to. I don't think once I have received a selvage from a fabric I also own...there are just too many out there :)

And there there was the monstrous box from Julie - thank god for flat rate boxes because this girl knows how to stuff a box.

As soon as I opened the end, it was exploding out of the box.

And just to explore what was there, I dumped it into one of the drawers I salvaged from the fire (they were going to be tossed for smoke damage and I wanted the fancy drawer pulls)

Yes, this drawer IS quite large and it's overflowingl!!!

You guys are the best and I can't wait to start playing with all the new colors for my selvage collection :)

That is too funny! Julie and I have been comparing stashes lately and decided we have much the same taste in fabrics, so all of that stuff in her box is making me drool! But you got stuff in my little package from scraps others have given me. I made a few doll quilts from things that were out of my comfort zone-that explains the pastels and brights. And I sorted some scraps to send someone else and found a few selvage pieces in the mix. You probably won't need more for a decade! : )

Glad you finally got them - I really hoped to send them a long time ago. Janet's look so nice and neat, then you look at mine...CRAMMED in the box - no neatness there. I really wish you could have seen us try to get them all in there and then tape the box closed.

I wonder if the mailperson ever wonders what is in that box~~that makes it that weird shape!! It looks like you have quite a lot of selvages to go through. I can't believe that Julie is worried about crumbled pieces--after being so sweet to send such a nice package of fun. Janet is worried about the colors!! I noticed you have the new book about hexagons under the first baggie of scraps--how do you like it??? I have been trying to find a copy to look at before ordering it~~just want to know if it is as neat as it looks on the cover. Sorry about the fire your town went through--it looked devastating, but glad there were lots of people willing to help. Have a good week. Judy
