Day 61-63

Day 61 – Need to come up with some new words, but JACKPOT is the one I think about when I open the post office box and it’s loaded.

Day 62 – And zero letters this day

Day 63 – On the last day of February, there was my tried and true special pen-pal.

This closes the month of February… now March onward… stay tuned.

Day 56-60

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 60 days already, going to and fro the post office… well, I did miss a few days in these 60, but… what can I say?

Monday was President’s Day and no postal service, but I didn’t count that day as a “day” when doing this post office box adventure. Good thing too because I was so exhausted from the Quilter’s Retreat, I don’t think I could’ve made it to the Post Office.  Ha.

Day 56 – I received two letters and I always say this or if I don’t, I mean to, but it’s true for all the letters I receive, all special people… thank you!

Day 57 – My special pen-pal wrote me… from looking at my schedule, I get a letter from her at least once a week. Thank you!

Day 58 – Zippo letters in the box.

Day 59 – A real surprise this one letter! Thank you!

Day 60 – And can you believe it? I forgot to go. I got so busy doing some things that by the time I looked at the clock, the post office was going to close in ten minutes. I didn’t have enough time… especially since I was still in my pjs.  Oh my.

Day 50 -55

Day 50 – I hit the jackpot this day as I received five letters. My heart skipped a beat seeing all those beautiful letters inside that post office box.

Day 51 – Empty mail box

Day 52 – Another jackpot – five letters! Especially sweet since this was Valentine’s Day.

Day 53 – Zero letters

Day 54 and Day 55 – I missed going this day because I was at a quilters retreat… maybe more about that on another post.

But here is what I accomplished at the retreat – and just fyi, under each design is about six of each envelope. I sewed a total of 131! Just a mere 109 to go! 

And just look at that cute name tag that was made for all those at the retreat.
