Then the mailman came

So, I have been knitting away on my green sweater. I told myself there will be no more quilting until it is done.




Then, the mailman came.
I almost kissed him.

LOL! I feel the same way about my mailman. Ditto on the FedEx and UPS guys.

It's like watching Christmas walk up to your mailbox! My mailman would be mortified if he knew how excited I get when I see him!

Can't wait to see the next quilt Katie! Like you, I'm knitting away on a gift scarf for a friend, when I want to be sewing! Your latest quilts have inspired me to drag out the fat quarters and start thinking about redoing our bedroom.

Looking forward to seeing the green sweater too. ;-)

Are those SHEETS?!?!?! I'm dying to do another sheet quilt, but....have to get some other quilts done first. It's sooo hard though. You know what also works good out of sheets - the birds you made a while back.....What a great mail day!

would have loved to see the mailman's expression if you did! my mantra is "no more" but now we are travelling and with all the fabric and yarn available i could be tempted!

Beautiful fabric! I bet the mailman loves coming on days like this when we get so excited to see him. :)

Jenny said...

I'm sure he wouldn't have minded. :)

I'm sure whatever you make with it will be absolutely beautiful!
