Today I finished bundling up the quilts, making sure that they were as clean of threads ((and cat hair!)) as they possibly could be.
some had labels that weren’t even signed yet – how is that for procrastination?
Pigma pen located ---my labels are simple. Name of quilt, my signature, city and date. That’s it. All in my own hand writing, I don’t do computer printed labels.
I love these large tubs for shipping. These come from Home Depot and run about $10 each – they have tight fitting lids, and holes for zip ties.
They keep the quilts safe from snow, slush, water ---and can be shipped back and forth multiple times.
The quilts are also in large clear plastic bags inside, just in case. I like clear, because no one will mistake them for trash.
When I think of the miles of binding, of the yards of fabric, of the hours spent piecing and quilting – I get really nervous dropping these off into the hands of FedEx, but it was time for them to go ----so off we went.
Two on the counter!
One on the floor.
Addresses and other info typed into a computer system that will help direct them from here to there.
Dear FexEx! You are carrying precious cargo! I’ll be waiting ((Why do they say with baited breath? That is really a bad image?!)) eagerly to hear that they arrived in Missouri!
Photography time is exciting! One step closer to a new book this coming Spring!
