boxes

Friday was an exiting mail day.  I saw the mailman walking past my front window and thought I sure hope he doesn’t have to go far.  Immediately followed by the thought of how is he going to drop my mail off carrying those two boxes.  I got up and headed to the door and never heard the mail box.

Turns out the boxes were for me!

The top box is from a cousin who sent me some old family photographs.  My great-uncle, my great-grandfather and if I understand the relationship correctly, my great-grandfather’s brothers.  I really need to find my box of genealogy stuff and photos and try to get names to the faces.

The larger box is from a quilting friend.

Shirts — missing the backs.  She said she just wanted the shirt backs and would be happy to send me the rest if I was interested.  Naturally I said YES!

Reds, yellows, browns, greens, blues and neutral.  A great addition to my shirts which tend to be on blue side.  I can’t wait to finish processing these shirts and then make some great quilts.

In addition to these wonderful shirts, I dropped by the fabric store and picked up 2 yards of fabric for my young quilting friend.  She says she wants to make 2 more quilts.  This goes in her stash and doesn’t get counted in mine.

Fabric Added Since Last Report: 31.444 yards
Fabric Added to Date:  53.944 yards

Fabric Used Since Last Report: 0 yards
Fabric Used to Date: 0.663 yards

Net Used for the year -53.281 yards

How fun to have photos of your great-grandfather. Hope you are able to put names to the faces.

What a terrific mail day! I have lots of pictures of ancestors, just no idea who they are. I wish someone had written on the back of them. It’s lucky your cousin knew. Bet you’ll have a good time looking at those. And shirts…I love plaids and thrift shop for shirts all the time!
