    My quilt is not in my possession yet, but should be here Monday. Last month I sent a pinwheel quilt to my cousin in Georgia. She is battling breast cancer. Long story short, the box was delivered to the address I was given, but my cousin no longer lives there.

    The post office was not very helpful. I would call and leave a message for someone to call almost every day. I never received a phone call.

    As a last resort, I wrote to the "resident" at the address where my package was delivered. The people called me Tuesday night. They did not have the box, but did see it across the hall. They told me the other people had moved out. After doing some investigation, they found a delivery slip from the PO. One that says "you have a package at the PO". My name as the sender was on the slip and my cousins name was the addressee. Today, I finally talked to someone at the PO. My package was there and I requested that they send it back to me! :D :D :D :D :D

    OH great news!! How is your cousin doing now? I hope she has a speedy recovery!! Maybe a nice thank you giftie of some sort could find it's way to the "residents" who helped you locate the quilt would be a nice gesture. crafty_linda_b

    Thank you for asking about my cousin. She had surgery two weeks ago (mastectomy). After she heals she will have more chemotherapy and radiation.
