TidyUp Tuesday - A{n Overdue} Mail Call Monday Post

Welcome to an overdue edition of Mail Call Monday (on a Tuesday!!)  I'm here to share (somewhat) recent arrivals in my mailbox.  The items are being shared in the order in which they were received.

Please forgive me, if you've seen this already!  I wasn't able to find where I posted it and wanted to make sure to thank Kathy @ Hazel's Daughter blog for this lovely prize win.  This was her entry for the Project Quilting 12.1 Illuminating and Ultimate Gray Challenge.

She included the following note:

Along with a fun little surprise!  Cleaning wands for the bobbin area of my sewing machines:

Thank you, again, Kathy!  Your darling little bib is going to make the PERFECT gift for a new little someone, as our great niece was born just last month.  

I also did a little retail therapy...

This new T-Shirt came from Edyta @ Laundry Basket Quilts:

I haven't done a lot of shopping lately, so when I saw this cute shirt, it just HAD to join the quilty clothing collection for my wardrobe.

Then there was a prize win from Carol @ Just Let Me Quilt:

As part of her the Hearts On Fire Blog Hop, she offered a gift certificate for her favorite online quilt shop:

Corrie @ Quilt Taffy (on Etsy) takes great care in her packaging:

I used my gift certificate toward the purchase of a pair of Karen K. Buckley Perfect Scissors:

Thank you SEW much, Carol, as I absolutely LOVE these scissors!!

More recently...

I received a MASSIVE scrap infusion from Selina @ Selina Quilts:

Just LOOK at them all:

I've spent a number of hours over the last several days happily sorting the fabulous array of usable scraps:

Thank you, Selina!!  I've already pulled together a few projects from that box of scrappy love.  I hope to have one of them completed by next week for my stop on the Show Your Stripes Blog Hop with Carla @ Creatin' In the Sticks!

Most recently, I received a really special BIG surprise...

This envelope arrived...

From Linda @ Art in Search:

I was fortunate enough to make it onto this year's Valentine list:

Thank you, Linda!!! I was SEW excited to get your beautiful quilted card in the mail.  It's the only Valentine I've gotten in several years.

Until next time...
Hooray for happy mail!!


  1. Looks you hit the jackpot, Joy! Lots of fun packages there. Do you like those scissors? I've seen them, but never owned any.

  2. What a fun post, full of happy goodness! I love my KKB scissors. Be careful while using them. They are most definitely sharp right down to the tippy tip! It's always a good day to add to the quilty wardrobe as well!

  3. What a haul of happy mail. I have that exact pair of KKB scissors. They are my favorite.

  4. Going to the mailbox looks like a circus at your house! What fun surprises inside! I'm so glad my sweet bib will be adorned on your great niece and slobbered, dribbled and used up! :) I need to look into those KKB scissors!

  5. What a happy day.... and such fun things!!

  6. I still enjoy going to the mailbox every day--what nice surprises you've received lately!

  7. Oh my goodness, you had a fun week in the mail department! Hooray for that big box of scraps! What fun.
