Any spare moment this week has seen me dashing to the sewing room to work on Mon Ami for the Le Petite group. All the HST's were a bit time consuming but they look great. It was fun to hear everyone's favourite techniques. I laid them out on the lounge room floor & went off to work...and came home to find them tossed around. Not sure who might have done this....hmmmm!
Today saw the much anticipated arrival of some cross stitch patterns & linens I had ordered in November from Country Stitches. After a delay due to linen availability they left Brenda on Dec 14...and disappeared! I had given up hope and then they arrived today...in a VERY sorry state! Wet, ripped apart, tyre marks & mould...yuk! All bundled in a plastic bag ( not a good idea) from Sydney Gateway with a note saying this is how it arrived in Australia....if only it could talk....it would probably cry! Most was safe in plastic but one kit was mouldy & I think some wool felt is salvageable. It came from Storm Lake...ominous! I will post pics as the patterns are great when it has all dried out!
