On December 13 I mailed six gifts to the US. To my knowledge only four have arrived. I have no idea of what has happened to the other two - what is it with the postal system? I'll own up that I missed the deadline by a couple of days for mailing in time for Christmas, but surely they have had plenty of time to get there now? One missing package contained one of the tiny Christmas Crackers (see here
) and a birthday gift and the other the above pincushion with Swaroski crystal and pearl pins. Still, ever the optimistic, they may eventually arrive and if they don't I will re-stitch! The pincushion is a CA Wells' pattern and is stitched on 35ct white Brussels linen with white perle no 12 and a pink AVAS silk floss although I cannot remember the shade number.
Still no luck with the Charland mistletoe charm but a thank you to all those who searched their stash and/or contacted their LNS. I guess I will have to wait for the one I have on order but in the meantime I will 'finish' the ornament and stitch the charm on later.
It's dull and gloomy yet again. Will the Summer ever arrive? Will I ever see sunlight again? Will I ever sit out in the garden and feel sunlight on my face? I'm SAD!
Thanks for visiting
