You Are All Amazing! You Know Who You Are....

Wow. Just WOW!!!!! My dad drove over to my house right after picking up the mail at the post office. As you can imagine, he was laughing his head off....
Back of my dad's work truck
Back at their trailer, he stacked all the Happy Mail up for my mom to see the minute she walked in the door... I was told her smile was enormous and she looked a little bit shell shocked!
Monday's Happy Mail!
And no wonder. Birthday? Christmas? How fun would it be to dig into all this? lol  My daughter and I helped open (not dig into) the envelopes and packages to speed things along. At the rate my mom was savoring everything, it could have taken days to get through it all! She didn't want to be in a picture, so I cheated and just got one of her hands. Mostly. hehe
All the back fabric is stacked on a small plastic crate, but still....
Can You Believe This? lol
Lots of sweet notes and special little pieces of fabric, not to mention a few notions, books and patterns.
Very sweet...
And this was only the 3rd day of getting envelopes, mailers and now boxes too? Just incredible. My mom received this from 2 provinces in Canada (British Columbia & Ontario), plus these states: Washington, Oregon, California, Montana, Utah, Texas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Maryland, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Nebraska, North Carolina, Michigan, Massachusetts, Kansas, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Arizona, Mississippi, New Mexico and Indiana--probably some I've forgotten!. You are all amazing!

  4. Fantastic! I agree with Dasha - would have been great to be a fly on the wall to see your mom's face as she walked through the door. I hope she has many hours of happy quilting with her developing stash!

  12. Oh how fun! You have either solved the P.O. financial problem or created a new one! They may have to hire more staff to deal with the packages! I would love to see their faces! LOL!!! :) So very glad you have had an outpouring of kindness! :)

  15. Oh good! I am so happy that she will be able to re-stash and quilt again! I cannot imagine how awful it must be to have a fire and lose all your "stuff"...sometimes, just a few little things can make you able to want to pick yourself up and stat again...I hope she can get settled soon...hugs, Julierose
