O-M-G!


Look what was waiting for me on my doorstep tonight. Couldn't even lift the doggone thing! Had to get the dolly just to get it in the house!

Don't ask me what's in it. I'm going to wait until this weekend to open it when I'm not so tired. A box that big deserves plenty of attention! I want to oooh and aaah over everything in there - all beautifully packaged, I'm sure, by Kimberly at the FQ Shop.

The weather has turned fallish. I won't get the fall decorations out just yet, though, because I'm sure the hot weather will be back. It was wonderful last night. I got so cold that I had to shiver my way downstairs to get a second quilt for my bed. I should have lit the fireplace and snuggled up in front of it.

I may be trying to get sick. I hope not. I've got quilts to make!!

Oh, I hope you're not getting sick! Well, not unless you just want to play hookie from work and open that HUMONGOUS BOX a day early! LOL!

mar said...

Kim's got the right idea! ..

Dibbies!! xoxo
Don't get sick, it's the weekend!

Teresa said...

I'll throw my wishes that you stay well in there.

Yvonne and I were chatting earlier today about how you are our hero. No one shops like Vicky!

Norma said...

How could you possibly wait to open that box? It would drive me crazy until I opened it!

Patti said...

This box must be the result of your poking buttons the other day LOL! It'll be like Christmas! I can't believe you can wait until the weekend to open it - I'd have a hard time waiting 5 minutes!

I sure hope you aren't getting sick. Quilters - especially those of us who work at an actual job - can't afford to be sick. Or injured for that matter! Be carefull you don't cut yourself when you open that box!

:-)

Yvonne said...

Oh my Vicky....I can't believe you're going to wait to open that huge box filled with quilters' delights.....such self discipline.....LOL

I will keep my fingers and toes crossed that you are not getting sick. :)

Hope you're not getting sick. You're right -- you have too much to do. But, you may be very, very ill. Waiting to open that package is not a very good sign! :)

Darlene said...

You're not opening that box right NOW??? What is wrong with you, Woman????? The suspense is drive ME crazy - hurry open it.

Oh, I hope you're not getting sick. Try to keep the stress at bay today and hopefully you'll avoid the bug.

((HUGS))

cher said...

Can't wait to see what is in the box...I don't think I could not open it right away!

Better start drinking lots of water and orange juice!

Carol said...

OMG!!! That one must weigh more than the record 17 pound box...oh I just can't wait to see what's inside. You are the best internet shopper! Don't get sick...tomorrow's Saturday :)

Gail said...

oh, oh oh, show us what's in the box!!

atet said...

Ok, how's this -- here's to hoping for sick enough that you can't go to work but not so sick that you can't quilt. Hmmnn...sounds like the perfect compromise to me!

Jeanne said...

You're not opening the box? How can you wait? I'd have had that thing opened in no time. You're forcing patience on us!!! :-)

Are you trying to take the "title" back from me?? I think the size of that box gives you the "shopping queen" award. By the way I can hop in the car and be over there in 20 minutes to help unload all that stuff. You just say the word!

Camille said...

I am SO extremely jealous right now! Now THAT is a fabric order!

Love your blog!

Jeanne said...

A handcart to bring your box in -- toooooo funny! You must hold the record for Best Shopper!

A little rain here overnight.

How could you possibly wait another day to open that box.? Course you know whats in it if it's from the FQ shop, Kim 's got the right idea though.

Kim said...

SO OPEN THE BOX ALREADY! I'M DYING TO SEE WHAT'S INSIDE!

Wendy said...

You are a tease....open the box....we are waiting anxiously for what's inside.

Keep well my friend.

Karen said...

ooo, pretty box. It looks nice and heavy all right.

CONNIE W said...

Once you get the box opened the fun of the anticipation is gone. I often times wait a day or two before opening things if I'm not in a hurry to get my hands on it. Now, I'm dying to see what's inside.
