I’m not sure if I have written about these fun pieces of mail I received last month so I’m going to do it now.
I was so amazed to get an email from Natasha at Island Batiks letting me know I had won a fat quarter bundle for commenting on Week 2 of the Row by Row Blog Hop.
I picked up my mail on the way to the studio last trip. I opened it just as my daughter was calling me to let me know our Clarke had passed away.
These colours and fabrics are stunning and now I need to find the “perfect pattern” to make a quilt for my grandson and his partner. It seems “right” somehow. Perhaps the pretty colours will bring some comfort to them.
Just after the Polar Bear Plunge Blog Hop ended, Selina from Selina Quilts emailed me to let me know I had won a sweet set of her rice bags. It arrived with the IB prize package and couldn’t have been better timed. When I came home from the studio we got another dump of snow and I had some shovelling to do. I heated my hand warmers and tucked them in my jacket pockets so I could tuck my hand in to get warm. They worked wonderfully! Thank you again Selina!
The mail also brought several cards with sweet condolence messages and a few more packages of scraps and unloved fabrics to help keep me occupied.
Thank you for reading my post. 😄 Carol
