    The quilts that finally arrived

    These are the quilts that I sent to my friend that I was not allowed to insure and then went missing....everything arrived in a plastic bag but were not damaged. Sorry about the size of the pictures, these are the only ones I could get to upload. And again, thanks to all, you kept my spirits high and positive.

    So glad they finally turned up!! Good thing you put them in a plastic bag before boxing? Did you include the address inside the plastic bag or did they manage to locate them and forward them to your friend without the address?

    Both are beautiful.

    Your story is inspiring ... sometimes good things do happen to good people. And the post office can make things right.
    Thank you for sharing the rest of the story!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Why were you NOT allowed to insure these quilts? Makes no sense to me.

    I'm so happy for you. I imagine I would feel sick if I ever lost one of mine. Just the thought makes me feel queasy.

    Happy that they turned up. I'm curious as to why they couldn't be insured, too.
