Blogger Happy Mail!

If you've been following my blog for a bit, you know how much I like my "happy mail". Lucky me, the past few days I've had surprises from blogger friends! 
The first was from Marianne at Adventurous Quilter.
She's helping me collect 4 inch squares for my I Spy Quilt WIP that I'm making for our new grandson. I'm sooo lucky as she has the best "boy" fabric and having raised girls, this is a god-send! My husband always enjoys when her little packages arrive in the mail, and is the first to spread out all the squares! (Boys!) Marianne and I both started blogging this summer, and became fast blogger friends. We each keep a basket in our studio to collect/cut I-spy squares for one another. Every now and then, we'll drop one of these little  packages in the mail to surprise the other with new I-Spy squares. 

I also won this during the Blog Hop of Give-Aways in November from Angie at Quilting Readers  Garden and it just arrived today!

And, every Christmas my parents always renew my Quilting Magazine.
(Thanks guys) My notice arrived in-between all the bills.
I'm silly...I know. But life really is about the little things. 
And don't ya just love getting fun stuff in the mail?
Make your confessions here...what's your favorite Happy Mail?
(I promise not to tell your husband,)

With smiles!

  2. My favorite "happy" mail is a handwritten letter. But your right, its the small things that are truly important. Just an FYI about things that make me happy (& this occurs around Xmas, birthday or anytime you'd get a gift or something to unwrap) I love "unwrapping" anything. It can be a piece of bubble gum wrapped, a box that arrives in the mail, whatever it is that simply needs to be "unwrapped." The "surprise" to discover what's inside gets me excited. Ha! Have a good week, dear friend, & keep warm. Victoria

    1. Ditto dear friend! I actually have saved numerous letters my Granny and mom have wrote me. I just find such comfort in their handwriting. I laugh in thought of your unwrapping the Hexi's I'm going to teach you how to make. I'm going to triple wrap them!! LOL!!!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am now going to hunt for some boy fabric for the I spy quilt for you. I bet I have some. Fabric is the most fun surprise thing to get. Sometimes my sewing friends will leave a small bag of scaps on my doorstep and what a treat to see when I get home. So impressed with all you get done.

  6. Yipee Val!! I'm sure that Marianne will love reading your post. She's talked about her I Spy partner several times. She gets pretty animated when she finds fabrics that are great for that. I volunteer with Marianne for the Green Bag Lady and we all chat about sewing, fabric and quilting while we work.
