Today's mail - some in and some out.

These four laundry bags are on their way to Afghanistan as we speak.  Cynthia's son has just gone over there are these are for four of his friends.  
 This one is for a girl who has a thing about cupcakes!  (who doesn't!)
Cynthia has already sent 18 laundry bags to her son's entire group!  We are planning to do quilts for them as soon as the first mail out is done!

So, that was the mail out and this is the mail in.  This first lot is from Pauline.  First her 9 patch blocks - lovely and bright and just what we need.
 Then two fabulous quilts.  Love the use of solids down the sides.  The narrow black border really sets this one off beautifully.
 And I just love black with brights!
 And finally two laundry bags, also from Pauline.  She has done well!
And then Maria sent these two laundry bags.  Love those bright fabrics, particularly the hot air balloons.
Thanks so much Maria and Pauline!  

if my calculations are correct only 24 sleeps till our first official mailing period begins on the 15th of March.  

Till next time............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!


  1. How exciting! Love the laundry bags and quilts and quilt blocks. Again, kudos to all of you! What a wonderful thing you are doing!

  2. Oh wow, they will LOVE them, they just make it so much easier to find their laundry, especially the lucky cup cake lover with her new pink bag, love Posie
