Snail Mail

Backing, Binding & The Cutest Park Avenue Fat Quarter!
The USPS is so slow, has a tracking system you can laugh or cry about and is generally as annoying as a billy goat. Should you not be country folk and know about billy goats, I had one for a pet for four years as a child. His name was Billy. My mother bought massive amounts of sheets during the yearly white sales. The sheets were to replace the ones Billy ate off the neighbor's clotheslines. Billy only ate white sheets!

I got a bit off track! The above goodies were in my mailbox yesterday - the backing and binding material for My Lucky Stars quilt. There was, also, the cutest free fat quarter in the package - Park Avenue by Three Sisters. I love the backing. It it beautiful - even wrinkled from shipment.

Scripture for my day: "For ye have need of PATIENCE, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise." Hebrews 10:36 (KJV)

The fabric really is beautiful.

I love the story of Billy who only ate white sheets. At least that made it a bit easier for your mother!
