Thursday was like Christmas in my mailbox!! I received packages from: Darlene, Jackie, Kay-lin, Michelle and Nancy. and it's not yet May!! Thanks so much ladies...I'm going to try to hold off til the 15th... beauties from this group will be it for my birthday, the kids barely remember and I don't think I've even got a card the last few years.. oh well .. it was a gloomy day with family issues and trying to decide after 4 months of relaxation/retirement if I should go back to work, while a job I could be interested is available--and I was sooo looking forward to a summer off after 42 yrs of working them!! oh well...Thanks so much!!

Going to the mailbox has never been more exciting, lol, usually it is bills, but this month....happy, happy dance!

4 more sweet thank you's: Lori (in NJ), Sheila (in Ohio), Marj (in TN), and Patricia (in MD) !!

I have to say, this is fun for my 2 children as well...they take turns going to the mailbox and we are going to open them one at a time on my birthday Wink.......with each new squishy, the kids are just as excited as I am!

Thank you all.

I received a couple more Saturday and again Monday...but walked out of house without the list so will update when I can. Yesterday turned into another family drama, this time with 4 hours spent with my dd at241-Kids, local family services, to get temporary emergency custody of her 2 boys, my grandsons. We don't know where she is, but hopefully taking care of herself Frown

Just a heads-up to the June ladies - my FQs have also been mailed. Dealing with the rapidly declining health of DH's mother (COPD, CHF & Alzheimer's), and while she's in an acute care facility right now, we don't know when hospice will be the next step (she's 92). I wanted to make sure the FQs were mailed in plenty of time. Taking things day by day.

I received another squishie yesterday, a blue batik and hmmmm..and left the envelope on the table and don't remember from whom. I'll post that later when I get home. Deb51, I did receive yours, thanks for asking...It had slipped out of the basket I had put all the squishies in...the 2 puppies I fostered them for a week til they were adopted, found it couple days ago behind the table it had been sitting on..I did rescue the envelope before they ripped it to shreds! As far as the fabrics, all laid out it looks like you ladies consulted with each other, most of the colors go together, and the kid novelty fabrics fit into 2 specific themes Smile

Thank you to Aliquilt and Quiltsalot for the last 2 squishies!

My 2 daughters and I sat together in a little circle and took turns picking an envelope to open and ahhhhing and oooohing at all the beautiful colors and designs and choices!

Thank you to all for making my birthday sooo wonderful.....Sincerely, Mary Kay
