    The Post Office was closed...

    Missed the post office by two minutes today; I really wanted to ship my mother her new quilt I made. So when I got home I made a pillow case to match her quilt. I hope you like it. Thanks for looking.

    It's fabulous! Must be a reason why you missed shipping it today. . . .

    Gotta love the Post Office - and your Mother will too!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Impressive! Your mom will be happy that you missed by two minutes. I mean, that's showing the guy for closing the window on time! You go, girl!

    That's just what I was thinking! It was destiny... "Destiny's Dresdens". I love your pillowcase -- it looks fabulous with this beautiful quilt!

    post office was closed all day yesterday, it was election day.

    But I guess that would depend on what state you are in, we in Michigan had primary election yesterday.

    I re thought what I had said.
