Affair with the mailman? Who me?

Please, please, please don't tell anyone. This was a package I received from Barb at Bejewled Quilts by Barb. Barb's niece is opening a fabric/sewing business on line. I offered to collect some brochures for her since she was not going to Market. As a thank you....Barb sent me this beautiful fabric. Soooo nice to get such a lovely gift in the mail. Thanks Barb!!!

Then, Terri from Sew Fantastic sent me this goody package. She said she knew I would love it so she sent it. Terri was right....I love them. (for those of you who are wondering what else I

Look how beautiful these are.....and some had prints on the back too!!

These are the back of some of them. I think I'm levitating.

Many of you know I've been sick since coming home from Houston. It has been a little challenging these last two weeks. So this morning I'm asleep on the soft when I hear a knock at the door. I'm not expecting anyone so I lay still then creep over to the door. I see a package at the door.

Look at these....Olivias Holiday by Tina Givens sent these saying she was sorry she missed me at Schoolhouse. Look at these amazingly beautiful fabrics (they feel heavenly)and note cards. I can't believe it.....she makes it worth my while to continue missing her at any and all events. As a matter of fact....I just might miss all of the Schoolhouses from here on.....and then wait for the packages to arrive...ROFL. Tina......I don't know what to say....Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

A quick update on the adventures of my co-workers:

Look at Zach peaking through some hay....look at the glee in his eyes. That fills a (Boss')Mommy's heart for a very long, long, long time :)

This is Aaron. We went to St. Vincent Hospital on Sunday for a Cub Scout event. Aaron saw this statue reaching out and he went right over and attempted to climb up to give her a hug. Daddy told him not to climb so he reached up and hugged a statue.

Last Tuesday was wear a red tie to school day. The boys made their ties. We used a stiff interfacing and some red fabric. I stitched it to cotton strapping and added Velcro. They cut out these little pictures from fabric scraps and wah lah....ties for school. This is the two of them on their lunch break. They were so proud of their work.
Lets hope I can post again tomorrow. I think Rick got everything fixed back up....I'm crossing my fingers.
Grateful Smiles,


  1. wow, you got your package fast and yes.....your mailman loves you...I know he wants you....

    Cute kids!!

  2. Love the ties, the hugs, the smiles and the fabric too! How lucky are you to get such cool packages in the mail? I'd love my mailman if he brought me way cool stuff like that!! Hope you are feeling better today after the meds....

  3. The boys look so cute! Getting the mail can be the highlight of some days...but if we have an affair with the mailman we also cannot forget the UPS guy either!!

  4. Ooops....meant to tell you to rest up and get well.
