    I know, right Cathy? Didn't know I had some of the stuff. Thought it was lost forever! Found some stuff that I just looked at and said....I remember the quilt I made with that....
    Ahhh...the memories. hehe
    And yes....I'm sharing. Hubby says I should send a tote. Then I told him the price for shipping. hehe
    He's glad I'm "unloading" some of the stuff. He actually saw one piece and was shocked I had it in the pile to be sent.
    He says what we are doing is a good thing and says that if there were more people like us, the world would be covered in quilts. Sweet man,huh? Gotta love him!

    My husband thought we should get a cargo plane and drop 'shipments' over Izy's house. .. I was worried it would squish her house hahahah... How would we explain that to Izy's nieghbors?

    I just had an idea!!
    The ship my hubby is on does Dependent Cruises.
    Maybe I can talk the captain into doing one to Spain!
    That would be SOOO cool!
    I'd even convince him to swing by and get everyone!
    It's a pretty big ship!

    Sewbusy and Terri!! Sorry!!

    Been otherwise engaged today, we have friends, (with a fellow American friend from California!) over from the U.K., staying in the next village, so not so much free time for the next few days.

    My full name is Isabella Ogden, but it doesn't matter if you have already sent the parcel, as it is a private post box address.

    Wooooppppppeeeeeee :!: :!: :!: I will definitely be ticking off the days on my calender, probably for the next few weeks waiting in anticipation of your very generous gifts.

    THANKSALOTTHANKSALOTTHANKSALOTTHANKSALOTTHANKSALOT THANK

    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Hi Izy- here is your box.... its on its way to you.. The picture is very dark, sorry about that. The second picture is of a tabletop quilt that I didn't finish (uh, if you look close, I messed up on the rows... sigh...) anyway, it is an example of the fusible interfacing technique.

    Cathy M,
    What was the shipping price on that box? It makes my little envelope of fabric look very puny ... maybe I need to mail again, a box this time.

    I used one of the international flat rate boxes. It was $37.00 to mail to Spain- its considered priority shipping and will be there in 6 - 10 days. The largest box the post office has for international flat rate shipping goes for $49.00 and has a 20 lb weight limit. Picked up one of those today to put stuff in for another shipment. The post mistress made me take the curled party ribbon off the front... geeshhh..... :):):):)

    OMG - OMG - OMG - Cathy - does that mean it will be here possibly next week??????????????????? That box is sooooo big!!!! I truly only ever expected a couple of envelopes possibly. :D :D Calico, don't you worry, whether small or large, I appreciate every little scrap you go to the trouble of sending. :D :D

    I really don't know what to say........I truly believe that I MUST have a guardian angel who guided me to this forum.....where I have met so many truly wonderful people :D :D

    With the risk of sounding repetitive:-

    A GREAT BIG OUTSTANDING OVATION AND THANKS TO ALL OF YOU (you know who you are ) :D :D

    Cathy - Forgive me - how selfish of me - I failed to mention how lovely the picture of your table cover is - Its abit hard to see, as the light is coming through but I love the colours. I have some of the sticky backed interfacing,called filmoplast that you can just stick on - good for repositioning - then it is permanent after you iron it. It seems abit thick to me for quilting, I have used it on my Clematis wall hanging, (I have just finished the binding on it, but I want to add some more beads to it before I deem it 'finished'!!)

    Are you going to quilt the table cover or just use a backing as one of the Spanish ladies I know had made a table runner minus the batting, so that glasses etc., were more stable - what do you think about doing it that way??
