Mail's Here!

I have this problem with mail. I can hear the truck coming from a block away, like Radar O'Reilly on M*A*S*H. Some days, the truck is just pulling away and I'm already out the door to snatch it out of the box. Bill and Julia don't share this need to pick up the mail as soon as it hits the box, but Pete will grab it if I'm not fast enough. I came home late on Saturday afternoon and no one had gotten the mail yet! (Pete was at Boy Scout camp.) How can they let it just sit there all day?!

Anyway... Monday was the best mail day ever! My mother had stopped by for some crafting help, so I picked up the mail as I walked her to her car. I ripped open three squishy envelopes right there on the sidewalk!

This is a 4X5 block from Charise. Isn't it an amazing block? I love this pattern!

And another 4x5 block from Rachel. I love the fabrics she used! I don't have any of these prints in my stash, so I love it!

There are still openings in the next round (4th quarter) of the 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee. So if you are interested, sign up today! I might just do one more round to end up with 12 blocks. It's been so much fun so far, though, I might need to do all four rounds!

The third squishy held one of the last blocks from the teeny weeny paper piecing bee. I love these little (6") blocks, and I'm so sad that the bee is ending. I'm waiting for one last block for a total of 12. Perfect for a little quilt.

I'm thinking about starting my own bee. It will be for Rhode Island bloggers. I'll be sending out invitations soon to all of them who I know (8 or 9?). If you don't get an invite and you blog and quilt in Little Rhody, send me an email!

Great blocks! I tend to be there to catch my post as it drops through the letterbox - I don't get much so it's always a treat when the postie doesn't just walk straight past!!

I'd love to join, but I'm in NY. Do you make exceptions? What would it entail to participate?
