Fun Mail Day!

You all know that I love Marty the Mail Lady, and she did not disappoint yesterday!  Look at the fun things that showed up in my mailbox...
It's always fun to look through the new Keepsake Quilting catalog.

Yippee!!!!  I LOVE THIS MAGAZINE!  If you don't already have a subscription to Primitive Quilts and Projects, you should get one.  This is definitely a keeper - there are always several projects in each issue that I want to make. 

And the best piece of mail!  Check out these cute little bow tie blocks!  My blogging friend, Joan, from Keeping You In Stitches sent me these little gems.  She read my post about these and decided to make a few for me to add to the bag.  I just love them all.  Joan always has such fun projects going on, and I always tease her that any one of them would be happy to come and live at my house.  Unfortunately for me, Joan seems to always choose her daughter, Emily, instead of me, to gift her wonderful projects to.  So...haha Emily...I have something from your mom now too!

Wasn't that a great mail day?  And the best part...NO BILLS! 

Have a great day!


  1. You had the best kind of mail day ;-)

  2. Wow, I want your mail lady to come to my house someday, for the "no bills" if for nothing else!
    I used to get the Keepsake Quilting catalog, but I never ordered from it, I just drooled on it. They frown on that and they sent me several warnings, but I couldn't help myself. Eventually they exercised some tough love and cut me off of their mailing list. I have been in catalog drool rehab ever since hoping that at some future date they will take me back.
    Those are very nice little bow tie blocks. Joan did a beautiful job, but if she catches you taunting Emily about them, they may be your last. : )

  3. Marty must have hopped across the country to my mailbox, too, Julie! I delved into both magazine immediately! Unfortunately, she didn't deliever any bow ties - lol! How nice of Joan to make some for you!

  4. I haven't received my new Primitives magazine. Hope it comes soon. How nice to get a few gifted bowties to add to your quilt!
