Mild panic: a reminder to all

This arrived on my doorstep today...


No, it's not from LL Bean. It's my king sized Aviary Birdbath quilt! Needless to say, my heart stopped when I saw the condition of the box. What was the postman doing? Dropping it in puddles and kicking it?! Yes it's raining out, but seriously, half the box was soaked. (now I know why he didn't ring the bell when he dropped it off)




Thankfully my wonderful quilter Margaret had bagged up the quilt inside the box and it is totally fine.  And it looks amazing! (once there is some sun around here, I'll get some good pictures). In the meantime, just a reminder to always bag up your fabrics and quilts when mailing them. You never know what your postman is up to. **insert eyeroll**

My goodness....people's mail has been arriving trashed lately...totally unacceptable for 'providing a service'....except the PO can get away with it. =( Glad your quilt was safe....I was feeling ill for you.

Margaret said...

That was a good quality box too,...I'd report it to a post office if I were you. Do they want us to have a reason to use UPS?>?

Jessica said...

Oh my goodness! Thank goodness that it was wrapped up!

Denise in PA said...

Yikes!! I can't wait to see the quilting on this one!

Yay for sensible people bagging their fabric, and boo to the PO destroying things! I've never yet received a whole priority envelope from the US, and it's only been sheer luck that some things have arrived at all!

It does make you wonder what they are doing with all those packages, seriously? Thank goodness it arrived to you all safe and sound.

Bree said...

Wow! So glad it was okay in there! I've had a few UPS packages that have looked that bad.
