I have some of the craziest friends out there, but they know just what will make ME the happiest Quilter on the planet!
Oh how I love you guys! Really, YOU are the reason I finally got myself kicked into gear with this whole Christmas Feeling this year ---
You were there when I didn't FEEL LIKE IT!
My door bell rang just a bit ago, and there were not just one, not just two..but THREE packages for me to open!
Even SADIE could smell the yummies emanating from this one…so I grabbed it first…Trying carefully not to get the styrofoam peanuts all over the clean office floor --- I failed!
OH!! Goodies!! And a card!! This came all the way from Karen L who came with us on the November cruise…..the box was fairly heavy, and I set to opening it. And you know the rules? One of the cookies was broken, so I had to EAT IT FAST. According to those-in-the-know---Broken cookies have no calories because they've all fallen out! :cD
Not only is the box a beautiful gift in itself, but there are matching notecards! Cookies, Bread…and a HUGE Bag of pre-cut tumblers….only about 2,000 of them! Karen, you sneaky girl, are you trying to pass off your Millenium UFO on to me? LOL! I LOVE IT! Thank You!
And Speaking of Millenium stuff ---
Tracey B sent THIS goodie!
MORE MILLENIUM FABRIC! Just for ME!! Aren’t the M&M’s cute? Even if they are about 12 years old by now…LOL! And that wasn’t ALL---
She sent ANOTHER M&M’s Millenium piece! And 4 cheddar bowties to boot! Can you read the funniest part of all? As far as this Millenium thing goes?
Hahahaha!! I think I’m going to have to fussy cut this one and hang it front and center in my studio!! OH, this could have SO MANY applications, couldn’t it??! No….I don’t think the Millenium is over yet --- just wait til the next package is revealed!
Okay…so I go to open the OTHER end, only now the WRONG end is wide open, and if I don’t place it wrong side down on top of a solid flat surface, everything is just going to just dump out of the bottom!
This came from Alycia D in Marrietta, GA! Thank you Alycia!
UHoh!! Do you see what *I* see ((Sung to the tune of “Do you hear what I hear! – It is Christmas after all!!)) MORE MILLENIUM FABRIC!!
Found this at a Quilter’s yard /fabric sale. Thought you would get a good laugh!! PS…These are strings left from Roll Roll, Cotton Bowl ---I love it! and you know what? Those 2000 bits won’t even be recognizable by the time I strip it up REALLY SMALL! I’m thinking 1-1/2” is good…LOL!!!
So what about those strips in the box? Did you ever wonder just how MUCH fabric you can stuff in a Medium Flat Rate Box??
Holy Mass-O-Scraps, Batman!! I can’t believe you sent me all of this! Does this mean you are wimping out on any future mystery quilts that might require copious amounts of neutral strings? :cD
I had to put them in their OWN tub, there are so many! And you know what? From the looks of it, there are lots of 2” and 1-1/2” strips in here…they might have to be pulled to join the other neutral strips in the strips bins that are all so nice and neat now ---
I’ve really gotten a kick out of all the cards and emails and little gifts that mean so much through this holiday season. I wish I could send you ALL a bunch of squishy packages, and boxes of cookies in the mail. Thank you so much for making MY life so special, just by your being in it!
I can’t say THANK YOU enough – I just can’t. You guys are wonderful!
God Bless Us, Every One!
