Look what came in the mail today

That's Block #9 of the Primitive Garden bom (I'm working on block #4). That's the Fall issue of the Kansas Troubles Quarterly with 4 fqs of KT fabric. There's a neat quilt in the KT Quarterly that I'll probably have to make!
And - my Edgerider Wheels have arrived! YAY (Those are for my Gammill longarm!). We're going to attempt to put them on it tomorrow as it is going to be in the 90's and quite humid again and I don't want Bill working outside anyway.
Plus, my arthritis meds finally arrived by UPS late this afternoon. This is the second shipment because the first still hasn't arrived (I ordered them on the 9th and they were supposedly mailed on Aug. 10). Mind you, Express Scripts kept the second order in their pharmacy until the first -- to guarantee that I wouldn't get them before Labor Day. You can bet that I am not happy with their company. Oh, and I forgot to report that last Friday I received a brand new Cuisinart Breadmaker by UPS delivery. I had just called them mid afternoon of Monday and they managed to get it to me by Friday -- 4½ days -- Express Scripts should take a lesson in customer service from Cuisinart.

Gratitudes:
My arthritis meds should be kicking in any moment now!
Kingsmen Quilting Supply also has wonderful customer service.
Hugs. I came home from a busy errand day, tired and cranky and Bill gave me a hug -- just what I needed.
I donated platelets and plasma at the blood bank today -- it's nice to be needed.

Just so you know...I received platlets that saved my life when I was 30 years old. Those are hard to come by as they need to be fresh. You did a GOOD thing. Thank You for whoever gets them!!
Great mail!

Nothing like happy mail to chase away the blues.

Good luck with the wheels - I love mine! It's the best money I've spent on my longarm.
