Oh, there were the usual things ---bills. SPAM. Tax stuff. You know the drill. There were also book orders sent with checks to take care of and in the midst of it all were BOXES – that I knew were “none of the above” as usual mail is.
The usual mail got set aside so I could dig in! You guys are SO terrific!
In this mail there was Something to hang, something to plug-in, something to fondle, something to eat, something to sew with and something to save me from crockpot crud!!! What a mail day!
A package from “The Friday Sewing Group” at Paula’s Quilting Pantry who made Easy Street!
Whatever could be inside??
The “Word of Warning” on the envelope!
An Easy Street sign! LOLOLOL!!!! This is SO going in my studio!
A Quirky Flex strip for my retreat bag!!!
This came with a note from Stella Ann who says “Happy Birthday to You!” from a Quilt-Cam fan.
THANK YOU Stella! My next trip is a driving trip to Georgia, and this will be going in my retreat bag for sure. Awesome!
Slow Cooker liners? I never knew they made these!
I try to keep it “real” here on Quiltville, but evidently my crockpot photos look a bit crusty after things have cooked for hours…so Nancy in Indiana sent me these to try! You simply line the crock, pour your stuff in, and there is no baked on crustiness at the end of cooking to have to soak and scrape off. I just need to pick a recipe and get started!
Thank you Nancy!
A very fun feed sack from Julie!
The holes from the stitching are still evident…I wonder what was in this sack in its day? Flour? Sugar? Cornmeal? Aren’t the colors great! It’s never been washed….I’m giong to save this for a very special project down the road. I’ve got some other sacks I’ve saved and my collection is slowly growing. Thanks Julie!
Yummies from Karen L!
I messaged her back right away upon opening this ---we made the hard crack or broken glass candy always at Christmas time when I was little. I remember the syrup boiling and boiling --- “Is it done yet”?? No – watch the thermometer, and then drop some in a glass of cold water to see if it has reached hard crack stage ---if you don’t do it right, it’s a mess! When you do it right –it’s magic! My favorite part was breaking it up into the small pieces. Thank you so much for the memories and the sweetness, Karen! And I love the blue paisley fabric too! Gotta find just the right project for that as well.
I am so overly blessed, thank you so much for making my return home so fun!
