    My cousins, they did it again!!

    A couple of months ago I posted pictures of a huge box full of fabrics from my Canadian cousins. Today a surprise package! Another box! Just fortunate I bought 4 more large totes today! Many more 6" blocks and my daughter wants soup bowl cozys - (not to go in oven).

    I'll be ready after a ton of ironing!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.

    Nope, they are for more of the 6" blocks I make for a group to sew quilts with them for the needy. So the gift gets paid back!

    And for a few bowl cozy's for my daughter!

    That's wonderful! Perhaps it helps them out, too - getting things that they no longer want/need out of the house. Plus they are helping you with a charity project that is meaningful to you. It's a win all the way around!

    Mine, too?

    Our outgrown clothes got sent to cousins when I was a small child, but we've lost touch over the last 60 years!
    Lucky you!
