    I love to get those squishy packages in the mail. Most of you know the kind, the ones with fabric. A yard from Idaho, a fat quarter from Ohio and everywhere else. I like to buy from friends here and on ebay. The ebay purchases are gambles and it helps to read the fine print more then once.

    I like to receive those kinds of packages too. My DGS (just turned 12) asked me to bid on something on Ebay for him. I did, and forgot about it...he called me and yelled "WE WON!" I said..."What did we win???" My DD said he was refreshing his computer every 5 minutes all day! This evening he called and wanted to know if i knew when the item would arrive. I replied, that it was supposed to arrive tomorrow...he then started making plans to get here to pick it up! Yep, we all like to get packages, doesn't matter what age. :thumbup:

    I love to see my mailman coming down the sidewalk, cause I love getting deliveries. If I could afford it, I swear I would get something every day!

    i love to send that kind of package. its helping me see some light in my sewing room. only have a couple hundred yds to sort thru yet. my packages aren't squishy. i send via priority mail. have found the extra few cents is worth it to have things arrive promptly and in good condition. the one time i didn't package arrived in the purchasers words looking like a truck ran over it. fortunately i double bagged it.
