I'm on a high - very big high!
After writing yesterday's post the postman arrived. He delivered a big box from America.
I couldn't for the life of me think what it was. Had I won a giveaway (highly unlikely as I never do!), or had I ordered something online and forgotten about it (again not likely).
The Customs declaration form said it was a book. What on earth????? I'm sure I hadn't ordered anything recently. The Euro/Dollar/Sterling thing has put a stop to that!
Only one thing for it - start opening it! Now who do I know who lives in WI? Only Finn and I know she hasn't sent me anything and the name does look vaguely familiar. Questions, questions, questions. Start ripping and let's see what's inside.
Loads of bubblewrap. Whatever it is , it must be precious.
Screams, yells, jumping up and down - the family came rushing thinking I'd hurt myself.
It's from Kathie at Threadlines.
Her card says
"I happened upon a bargain priced copy of this book a couple of weeks ago. I already owned a copy; what to do with this new book?
I decided it belonged to someone who really wanted a copy and was unlikely to find one where she lived. "Someone" suggested you."
That "someone" received a phone call yesterday from a very incoherent me. Sorry Tonya - I probably wasn't making much sense!
Kathie - you are one of life's nice people. Thank you so very very very much. I still can't believe I now own this book and have to keep making sure it's actually on the table.
On that note - the sun is shining - for the first time it's warm - I've got a patio to pressure wash and Gwen Marston and Liberated Quiltmaking is going to have to wait until afternoon tea time, but I'll probably keep on popping into the kitchen to make sure it's still here!
