Mary Went Way Overboard

Remember I did some fun quilting for our friend, Mary, earlier this month.  She was so nice to trust me with her gorgeous quilt top and allowed me to practice my FMQ skills.  I had a blast, and she has a finished top.  I wrote all about it in this Quilting On A Friend Going Home post.  Mary shared a post about the quilt she named Random Intentions showing it hanging in her home, and I thrilled to see it!

Mary is Not Contrary

She sent the nicest thank you note along with some goodies (that were totally unnecessary).  It was a big ole package that was delayed from being delivered because of our cold weather.  No mail delivery for two days!  Unheard of in these parts, at least in all my born days.  The package came in with the littles – sweet boy marching around and baby girl wanting to be held.  I don’t know why I forgot it arrived?!

The first item I saw is this wonderful panel with some matching fat quarter pieces.  They are all so pretty – I can’t wait to put this together into a fun quilt top.  Next, I opened a baggie with many different 4″ squares.  Just PERFECT for another I Spy quilt.  Ooh, Addi with your name on it, I think.  See that pretty golden yellow fabric with the elephant, giraffe, and kangaroo on it?  That is some yardage Mary included . . .

Mary Doesn’t Like Appliqué

This cool eyeglass cases kit by Hoffman was also included in the package from Mary.  Why you might ask?  Well, it turns out that Mary doesn’t really enjoy appliqué projects.  Of any sort . . . even cute and clever ones like this kit.  It even includes the metal tape measure pieces to make the top snap shut.  AND all the appliqué pieces already cut out, ready to go.  Thank you Mary Ringer!  You went way overboard in sending the goodies – WAY o.v.e.r.b.o.a.r.d.

  1. You certainly received a wonderful package!

    I also loved reading about a little man and a little lady at your house. It reminded me of my daughter who has the same configuration of babies at hers. I miss them.

    Have a great week!

    It was such a nice thing you did for Mary, quilting up her quilt! And Mary was wonderfully appreciative. This quilty, sewing community never cease to make me believe that goodness may, in fact, win!

    Hello Roseanne, All of those fantastic goodies that Mary sent you are extra special! Have a marvelous time “playing” with all of your new fabrics! I think that the gifts that quilters exchange, for whatever reason, is one of the main reasons that got me into reading blogs in the first place. Almost every quilter is so generous with their stories and their “goodies”. They just make you feel better no matter and it really is to bad that everyone does not do the same as the quilters of the world! Thank you for sharing and Mary for sharing and lets just all smile and have a fantastic day! Hee,Hee,Hee, smiles all around

    What fun! I just know you’ll have fun with everything!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

  6. WOW! What a lovely gift of appreciation. She sure knows what you will use. Hope the deep freeze is done for the winter; probably not but one can always hope.

  7. What a wonderful goodie package ♥♥

  8. Aren’t goodie boxes fun? Mary did a great job on hers. You’ve got some fun projects ahead. We are buried in snow with more coming. The predicted 3-4 inches yesterday turned into 10 inches. Pretty to look at, a real pain to drive in. I’m tucked in and sewing. 🙂

  9. I feel like I got the best end of the deal, but I’m glad you like the goodies I sent. You did a great job of photographing everything. Have a great day, Mary.
