I love receiving mail!

While on vacation I had our mail stopped.  Look what the mailman hand delivered to me yesterday!
This is just the my fun mail. Didn't think you'd want to see the JUNK mail and bills.
Most of the packages were from the bee "Stash Bee".  It is sure fun being the Queen Bee for the month of March.  Here is what my design board looks like so far.

Not in any special order - waiting for 9 more stars.
Once this bordered star quilt is pieced together, I'll request a long-arm quilter to quilt it and then it will be shipped off to a SOLDIER through the QOV program.

Next in the mail was 3 yards of fabric I ordered from Fat Quarter Shop for the Rainbow Fabric Charm Swap that I signed up for.  I was given "aqua" as my color.  Tomorrow I need to cut this fun fabric up into 5" charm squares and get it in the mail to Sara over at Modern Pink Designs.

Sassy Aqua Dots - Sassy Aqua Daisies - Little Apple Aqua
Last package to open up is my monthly package from Pink Chalk Fabrics - the charming solids club.

Every month I receive 2 charm packs and 6 coordinating fat eighths for only $24.95 plus S&H.  I think it is a great deal.

I haven't sewed since the day I left for Seattle on the 15th and I miss it.  Tomorrow my husband is heading out really early to go "turkey" hunting for 4 days, so I'll be down in my sewing room getting caught up on BOM blocks, bees, baby quilt, the grannie square quilt, etc.....I'm so excited.

Today is my birthday and it has been a great day! Our friends from Atlanta that we spent time in Seattle last week with, gave my husband this hydrangea to give to me. 

My hubby took an extra vacation day to hang out with me today.  We took my mom out to lunch, he planted 4 knockout rose bushes and this hydrangea this afternoon, he picked up Chinese Food for dinner, and just brought me a glass of Merlot to drink while writing this post. What a great husband!!

The real icing on the cake was our 2 older grandsons (6 & 4) calling me on the phone this evening and singing happy birthday to me....love those boys!

Hope you had a great day like I had!!

  6. Getting quilty mail is so much fun! Happy birthday :D and those star blocks are looking so fantastic!

  7. Cindy. Thanks for stopping by my blogs. I love your Stash Bee QOV. When I saw that block I wished I was in Hive #1! I think I may try to do some QOV Quilts myself. I love quilting but am a fan of giving them away so that I don't have stacks sitting around and believe they should be used and enjoyed. It would be a privilege and an honor to make some for our troops and thank you for working for such a great cause. Can't wait to see you again at SS2012


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I just love hearing from you!
