Mail Call & A Turtle Story

Give-a-Way - T is giving away a great pillow. Go and check it out.
Here are two wonderful postcards from my good friends Holly and Carol. Pop over to their blogs and see what they are up to. My postcard friends are really wonderful.
I bounded out to the mailbox and lookie what I got! A great package from my friend Maree. She was really good to me with this bundle. I had told her that Angie was having a baby in November(the first girl, BTW) and Maree sent me pink & green fabrics to add to my stash to make a quilt for the baby. Also included are a lovely card, a pattern to make a jumper for the baby, a kitted cap in the baby's colors(Maree did you do that yourself? If so....WOW! and thanks), a tin of cute flower buttons, a thoughtful book and socks. I am so blessed to have such a great friend.........I guess I'd better get busy making that quilt.
And now for the rest of the story......Today started with a 56 degree morning....loved it......I lounged around in the bed, watched the birds fight at the birdfeeder outside my bedroom window, chatted with Kath for a few minutes, answered some e-mial, had cereal....you know a peaceful morning. I finally dragged out of bed, slumped into my studio, stitched on a binding, pinned it for later to sew down and wondered into my yard. It's about 69 degrees now and I'm walking about the yard picking up fallen limbs when I spot a lump under the Crepe Myrtle......hummmmmm, I thinking what in the world could that be.....not a snake to lumpy, not a squirrel to smooth, not a rabbit they're over by the last of my garden munching leaves. What could it be.....slowly, cautiously I moved towards the creature. The closer I came the more worried I became.....It was a turtle...far, far away from a pond or tank as we refer to it around these parts. Why had the little creature !~#$%^&*~)~+....... chosen my yard to park himself in? Didn't he read the sign that says "This Ain't It" clearly posted on a fence post in my yard? What am I going to do? I can't shoo him away like you would a bird or a squirrel or a deer. He won't budge. In fact, as I walked near, he pulled himself inward and just sat there. Now I'm alittle rattled...think, think, think......ah! A solution....shovel and hoe......Now I sense some of you pulling away from me at this point.....but don't worry....I'm not a murderer of animals ...... or.....people........I scooped up the little critter onto the shovel, placed the hoe over him so he wouldn't fall off and walked down to my neighbor's tank and left the little fellow there with logs of frogs, cows, dragonflies and other turtles. I did, however, warn him about the dangers of traveling without a mail.

First and foremost I want to thankyou for the link to my pattern. Now I can send for it.

You sure have wonderful friends to bless you that way with all the baby stuff, I think you blessed the little lost turtle, by returning it to a safe place, also.
What goes around, comes around.
LOL

I like your blog I'll have to put it on my blogs I read.

What a great gift to receive! Have a grand time making the baby all sorts of stuff. I think it is fabulous that you helped the turtle back to safety; but I had to laugh a little. Why did you not just pick it up and move it? Anyway that is what I would have done. LOL.

Thanks for the wonderful postcard. My kids love it. I am going to post about it today.

So glad the turtle found a happy home! Hope your neighbor was happy to have a new turtle too.
