Unexpected.






A little customized thank you from Anya ~ one of our summer winners! I love a surprise in the mailbox.
You've Got Mail.










Have you embraced the selvage movement?

Because her postcard was such a perfect fit for all of the 5" selvages that we have....





I begged for a tutorial. Anya already had plans to do one. It's there.



So, after our big giveaway last week, we need to recover.
Selvages = the perfect freebie.
Plus let's have more than 1 winner. Let's have 11.

Today's giveaway is however many selvages I put in an envelope.



Leave a comment about what you'd like to find in your mailbox.

Random drawing later tonight.

  1. What I like to find in my mailbox? Hand-written cards and letters from family and friends! What's better than that?!

  2. I like my mail box gets full, it doesn't happen often, too bad for me, lol. I'm always waiting for letters, that way I'm trying to understand the people I'm writing to, but since the fact I love to quilt, I'm getting crazy if I find any quilt stuff there, even a quilting ad, lol. I know I got the quilting bug, and it isnt going to dissapear soon!

  3. A letter from my deployed husband, or a package of exotic find to show the kids about the new country or place he is seeing. That has got to be the cutest postcard ever in the world!

  8. I always love to find an unexpected check in the mailbox. I also love a free sample of something I have been wanting to try. (the second is slightly more common, but I don't get a lot of either)

  11. I want to get the next episodes of Gilmore Girls from Netflix today. I hope it comes. Anyways, I recently saw a selvedge quilt in a quilt store and went "duh, that's how they get the dots on there!" So I really want to try it.

  12. Aren't Anya's selvage postcards the best? I love to find selvages in my mailbox, but honestly I'm happy to find anything but BILLS!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, there are lots of things I'd like to find in my mailbox, not least of which is a check for millions of dollars. In the absence of that, I suppose I could be extremely happy with fabric, crafting supplies, cards from friends and family, a quilting magazine, or a quilt. Sensing a theme?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I just love when the latest quilt magazine comes in the mail. We pick names for Christmas and my SIL asked my husband what I would want. He suggested a quilt magazine. Love him!!! It's like getting a present every month.
    Thanks for the chance,
    ~Karen~

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love to get packages that I'm expecting, cards and letters from friends and family (don't get much of that anymore thanks to email). I would love to find a big check one day that would allow me to be a stay at home mom! But, on a more realistic note, an envelope of selvage would be a nice surprise!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I just love "You've Got Mail." I like all packages of any sort. And...I hate bills like everyone else. Why do the two things seem to go hand in hand?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. It’s sad to admit, but I am a catalog nut. I love to get new catalogs in my mailbox. My favorites are home furnishing ones. I pour over them dreaming up new things to do with our house… too bad it’s usually always a dream as our house is bunker proof for three kids four and under!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The selvages are gorgeous. We quilters aren't hard to please. Would love to find money lots and lots of money!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Selvedges...what a wonderful giveaway! Of course my favorite thing to find in the mailbox is money...followed by fabric!

  44. I love cards and letters from friends. I love catalogues from quilt shops and I love my monthly FQ fix.

    ReplyDelete
  45. What I love to get in my mailbox is mailboxjoys. That is what we call unexpected surprises (big or small does not matter)from my quiltfriends with a kind word to cheer you up.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would love to find a letter to me from my grandma in my mailbox, she's been gone for a few years now, and I miss her terribly. I think it would be like finding money in last years winter coat. You didn't miss it cuz you didn't know it was there but once you find it, you're so happy! I also love finding packages from Quilt Taffy in there. hehe. And Christmas cards. All fun stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love it when I get an actual letter or card in my mailbox, instead of just bills and junk mail!! (I think I would want to make a check-book cover out of the selvages if I won-those are too cute!)

    ReplyDelete
  48. How fun is this!!! I love getting my magazines in the mail. It is like a big treat. Then to open it up while sitting in a comfie chari and go over each page... back to front!
    I was going to do a selvage edge project at my retreat next month... now I know the project has to be "postcards"! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Honestly...I think the best thing to get in the mail would be something addressed to my little kids. They get so excited when they get something in the mail...oh the simple pleasures!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love to find goodies that I have won. Crossing my fingers and toes to find this one in my mailbox.

  52. Fabric! I love finding fabric in my mailbox. I'm waiting for some to appear any day now too.

    ReplyDelete
  53. what a cool quilt those selveges would make . As for my mail box do you think Tim Daly will fit in it, doubt it, I'll have to stick with Netflix.

    ReplyDelete
  54. What would I like to find in my mailbox??? I love getting mail but the neatest thing that I can think of right now would be a letter from an old friend that I have been trying to find. Her name is Andrea. We went to school together in the 3rd grade and wrote back and forth. Well, years passed and we continued to write and then both of us stopped writing and I haven't heard from her in years. So, that would be really neat to me if I could somehow find her or her find me and get a letter from her. :0)

    Other than that I LOVE mail. I am new to quilting and have really been enjoying learning how to do that. I joined the Block of the month club at a local quilt shop here in town......long story but they had to discontinue it so I am trying to continue doing quilting on my own.

    Thanks for the chance in the drawing. How neat. I'm glad that I found your site!!

  55. Anything but bills.HA! I love getting fabric, patterns, swaps and surprises!

  56. Hand-written letters are always welcome! Anyway, all kinds of quilting-related packages are best! (selvages especially... I never win anything, though)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love getting cards in the mail...how cool to see a tutorial to use selvages! Nothing fabric related should get tossed!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well I'd like to at last receive a check refund that I'm due. Then I'd love a package of selvages. Throw me into the pot, please. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  59. I would love to find a winning lottery ticket in my mail box, a new sewing machine, a new house, oh and a little pony. I think im going to need a bigger mailbox tho.

    ReplyDelete

  61. I would love to find a fat quarter bundle of Rouenneries by French General in my mail box, but I would happily take an envelope of great selvages!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love packages in my mailbox (and I have a good sized mailbox to accomodate them!) - fabric, patterns, books - those are my top choices. I LOVE SELVAGES and I have since I was a little girl (and that was a LONG time ago!). I have been saving mine but I'm not quite sure what I want to make with them yet. The postcard is pretty cute.

    ReplyDelete
  63. love to see the things they make out of selvages. One thing I have never saved. lindagerig@sbcglobal.net

    ReplyDelete
  64. looks like a fun project... the selvege postcard thingie!

  66. notes and artwork from the grandchildren. i love children's artwork stuck on my fridge.

  67. I'd love to find some cards and/or letters from my friends and family. Everything has gotten so electronic these days, and I miss the "old time" handwritten letters from the past...

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love to receive personalized notes and letters. They come so seldom anymore with e-mails being so easy to send.

    I love all the gorgeous colors in the selvages and I am so glad that people are using them in such clever ways.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love to get fabric in the mail and blocks from the swaps I have joined.

  72. I've always thought it would be fun to be one of those people that buys things and then forgets and when they come in the mail it is a big surprise. Too bad when I buy things I anticipate them coming so they are never a surprise. So I guess what I am trying to say is that I would love a surprise package in the mail!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh I never get mail. My husband gets 100 envelopes per day. Today I got a piece that looked like trash and it was a $7.88 bill for my mammogram. I would love to get an envelope full of 5" selvages. I would turn right around and mail them to my special friend in NH. She is in love with selvages!
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I look forward to my birthday each year when my sister sends me my birthday gift. I never expect what she sends, it's always a fabulous surprise. I would also love to get selvedge's in the mail! That would be terrific!
