    keep the envelope Terri, for dna evidence.
    Did you notice the teeth marks on it?
    oh them buggers,
    guess somebody was having a good day, (whistling scared them off, before they made off with that luscious fabric.)
    whew, that was a close one, no telling what they were gonna substitute with...maybe a psychedelic geometric or something... :wink:

    Thanks all for looking for me.
    I'm willing to pay you back for them.

    But, I'd LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have yardage of what Barb sent.
    She says she's going to see if she can ask the lady she got it from. I'm just in love with that.......Oh, how I wish I were back in the states!!
    Maybe I'll need to get a "bug up my butt" and tell hubby I'm going to visit the inlaws....he might have a heart attack from me saying that. lol But, there are weekly flights from here to McConnell in KS.
    Hmm...there's an idea! I could fly in there, visit with the inlaws for a bit, rent a car and drive to CA, hop a flight out of CA back here! OH MY!! Thinking, thinking, thinking!! lol

    Barb...does your quilt shop have any more of this fabric? It's BEAUTIFUL!!
    I can send you a check, along to include the money for shipping. Let me know.
    Please excuse me as I step upon my soap box for a minute. I know the postal workers are very busy (but not as busy as they once were before the internet, huh). It seems that when a package is damaged as yours was, that they would have figured out a way to repackage -- even slip it into a clear plastic envelope or something) so that the package reaches it's destination "safely." Goodness knows, we pay enough postage.

    What probably happened is that they ran it through a piece of machinery that they shouldn't have instead of handling it manually.

    The valentine package that I sent returned to me in terrible condition. I had to re-package it before sending it back.

    OK, I'm done. I love your fabric. :lol: Thanks for listening. G

    oh, but Gail you are so right. I get some of my meds by mail, and one time I got my package inside another 'bag', and all the pills were just loose in there with original torn up pkging. Now, all these years later, I would never have taken any of this medicine. I would talk to postmaster and called pharmacy etc. but live and learn. I just let it go at the time. :shock: It could have been handled better than this. That's why they are bonded and make big bucks. i know, Sil works for them. :D of course I'm not talking about the whole kit and caboodle, just whoever dropped, broke my bottle, and stuffed in a bag etc. :?

    Terri, I scoured my stash looking for your cobalt...I have 1 FQ that "maybe" would work but it also has a green leaf in it. I'll be going to LQS when I get the IRR centers in...I'll be happy to look there for you. I'll also keep my eyes open as I finish working on that shop hop...no I'm not done yet... :roll:

    GailG...I agree, it should have been put in another envelope by them. I have had damaged mail come thru before and was always in a clear envelope by the post office. This time, it wasn't. Had it been a HUGE piece of expensive fabric and the fabric damaged, you can bet I would have been down at the post office raising the roof!

    I agree with Camillacamilla. Not sure there's any place on this globe that doesn't have access to the Internet. They wouldn't necessarily have to fly a long time to get to you. Better safe than sorry with any address or real name.
