    I can't believe this I ordered over 11 yards of material for a quilt I have been drooling over and decided to take the plunge. Here's the kicker: It started snowing here around Midnight and at this time there is over 12" of snow on my deck I received and email telling me my Material is being delivered today!!!!!!!!!!!! Really there is no Mail Man/Women in this decade that "No Matter Rain Snow!! or Sleet will Stop a Mailman" . well guess what :o( he's not coming today. Now that is true torture, but then again I could be snowbound for 2 years and still be able to make a quilt with all the stash I have. Talk about Addicted!!

    I'm just shaking hoping somehow this wonderful mailman of ours will find a way but I think It's wishful thinking at this point I will have to wait until Monday.

    Yes it's crazy, My DD took my 4 wheel drive to work today then called to say that after her morning hair cut she was going to drive everyone who didn't have a 4 wheel drive home!! God Bless her but just get your Butt home in one piece. 40 Mile an hour winds not for the faint of heart. But what don't kill us makes us stronger right??
