I am a horrible, horrible, horrible pen pal. Even an email pal, I am hit ir miss, on or off. Sometimes I think if I lived in Elizabethean times, I'd have been friendless because I'd never get around to writing a card of invitation!
Thank goodness for Mr. Bell.
Still, in starting my quilting, I've come to realize, I love the mail. I even don't mind sending mail (which was a chore even when I wanted to send care packages to the hubs overseas). I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE sending fabric or surprises and I like getting them, too.
I ordered batting from Connecting Threads the other day and I'm eagerly awaiting it's arrival along with a package of fat eights. (BTW, it was a 30% off sale on batting if you need some.)
I also ordered a pattern and two small pieces of fabric from Hancock's of Paducah. I love Hancock's of Paducah and nevermind there is a Hancock's down the way a bit from me, it's just not the same. Well, within 3 days, I had my order sitting outside my door. YES, THANK YOU HANCOCKS!
The pattern, I love it and am going to have to work very hard not to start it until I clear out some of these UFOs.
I'm eagerly waiting for my "swap" surprise to arrive and I've sent my mug rugs out and they have been received by my partner. She says she likes them and that makes me happy. It's a bit nerve racking while you wait for a complete stranger's verdict on your work. lol
So, today, this Friday, one of my favorite thing is mail. Go on over to the link on the side of my blog to see many other favorites!
