Mail Call...

There was a week or so at the beginning of this month where we weren't home very much...we always seemed to be out and busy. In our neighborhood, we have community mailboxes, so it takes a little effort to go and get the mail...well, not so much effort as time...all of about 1 minute since it's just a walk about three houses down from us. Nonetheless, our mailbox went a little neglected for about a week or so. That is, until I came home one day to find this stuck in my door...
I immediately went and got the mail...writing a little note of apology to our mail carrier, too. What, you ask was causing my mailbox to be so full in only one week? Some great mail goodness...All of these wonderful scrap swap packages! These packages come from Anna K, Penny, Stacey, Emily, Lolly, and Jacquie. Anna K even included a cute little charm! Then, a few days later, I received a couple more scrap swap packages! These are from Sheree and Jenn.This was like Christmas for me...or so Rick said. I was so excited...oohing and aahing over all of the wonderful scraps everyone sent me. I'm so excited to start using them, but I need to find the right project first. I know it will be a scrappy quilt of some kind and I have a few in mind. One of the patterns I'm thinking of is the 'Oh My Gosh'. I saw the quilt made up at Broadbent's and it really is an oh my gosh...it's so amazing with all the scraps and the really tiny pieces. We'll have to see if I have the patience for that...I may go with something entirely different!

It would be like Christmas for me too Anna! I usually can't wait to get the mail on a daily basis cause you never know what might be in there!

Wasn't that a fun week? I see scrap quilts now everywhere I turn -- if only I could decide on a pattern!
