That’s a biggun

I get a lot of emails about IBOL.  Sometimes, it’s small talk.  Sometimes, it’s about loved ones who are deployed.  Sometimes, it’s about things like what to use as a phone number on the customs form (for which there is no good answer, by the way).

Today, I got an email that started, “I sent out a 37 lbs package today….”

A 37 pound bundle of love.  Wow.  That’s one heavy bundle!

I also had a wonderful comment, when someone said that started by figuring out what they’d want to receive as a starter kit, and then going into their stash and digging out those kinds of things.  That just struck me as being awesome — making the kind of bundle you wished you were receiving.

So, keep ’em coming.  I am fairly sure I am all caught up on comments and sending out the address, as of…. right this second.  If I wait 3 minutes, there will be another comment, for sure.

    wow!!! 37 lbs of sewing goodness! that is a great bundle for someone to receive.

    mine is half packed so far. mostly 1 yd and 2 yd cuts of fabrics – lots of solids, a few quilt squares to get them started on a blanket, buttons and thread.

    I need the address, please. 🙂

    37 lbs! Now I have a goal to shoot for. I have some fleece that really belongs in Iraq, though, so I might not quite make it to 37.

    LOL – I love reading the replies to each of your posts. “Please send me the address” is about the only comment you are getting nowadays. Yay for you, Art! Any new pix yet? A new box count, perhaps? Maybe I’m nagging too much? :o) I think I might have to troll through the stash and see if I can pack up another box or two…

    Please send this year’s address. It was a lot of fun last year!

    What’s this about thread? Is this a special need or what?
