WOOOHOOO! My first attempt to ship work back to their owner in ALASKA went fine! I was a little worried. I love using UPS because of their tracking abilities. BUT shipping to Alaska was very cost prohibited! So I looked into USPS...at times I've had mixed reviews using them. BUT this time it was an amazing experience. I worried because Wanda was on vacation and I worried that they would not be home when her quilts arrived AND I worried that they would be delivered when no one was there. Don't you love it when a plan comes together? I mailed her quilts back using Priority Mail with tracking. OMG they made it home in 3 days!!!!!!! I was in shock. Wanda got home the day before and eased my mind by telling me she HAD put a stop on her mail. So all was good. I received this message from her last week:
They came out beautifully. I am anxious to get the bindings on this weekend so I can ship them out to the recipients, who will be very surprised when they arrive.

Thank you for the beautiful job you did on the quilting. I am sure I will be sending more your way in the future, I just have to get some tops done.
You ARE more than Welcome, Wanda. I totally enjoyed our experience and I hope we can collaborate on more of your tops in the future.
Wednesday I'm off to a quilting retreat in St. Louis. I'm excited. I LOVE these ladies - about 30 in all come to this retreat. We have a BALL...we sew, we laugh, we giggle, we sew...we totally enjoy each other's company. So I'll return on Sunday with stories and pictures...I hope you come back next week.
