Stitchy updates..

I am moving slowly on my Sense & Sensibility Sampler- but here is my progress as of right now-
Here is my latest start- a freebie by Little River- I always like getting a freebie that is printed in black and white, that I have never seen stitched before- I like being surprised when it's all finished. :)

The fabric is actually green with bits of yellow, don't know why the colors won't show up in pics, even when taken under the Ott-lite..

And a bit late, but I have taken Feb. out of the frame and put March in!

I am a bit peeved with the postal service- if you read Barb's blog you know already what I am talking about- but Barb and I did a pattern swap- I sent her "Mr. Snow Tired" and she sent me "The Emma Project"- and as a nice surprise she had sent me a beautiful fob- well not only did the postal service take forever to get it to me, but when I got the envelope it had been torn open and the fob was missing. This is what she had sent me.. sniff...
(photo courtesy of Barb)- I am so sad, this was absolutely beautiful! I am going to check with the P.O.(in vain, probably) to see if they have a "lost and found" box of things they find that might have fallen out of people's packages! (ahem!) Makes me want to send everything in well-packaged boxes from now on..

Oh Tracey, I am sobbing with you over the loss of that gorgeous fob. You just never know when those machines are going to destroy something. I love your March piece and you are making great progress on the other two. It sure would be wonderful if somehow the fob was found. (Probably a miracle too)>

Tracey,

I hope you find some joy with the Post Office. Beautiful stitching!

Catherine said...

Oh my! That is beautiful - I'd be crying too!!

How awful that the fob didn't make it to you. It's gorgeous and I can see why you'd be so upset. I can't tell you the number of times things have arrived to us damaged (or lost).

Your projects look wonderful!

Kathy said...

I had a similar thing happen to me a number of years ago. One reason I always put a lot of tape on my envelopes.

Your wip look great.

Good luck with the post office. But don't hold your breath unless you look really good in blue. LOL

One day you may get another you never know lol.It will be so well wrapped you will take hours to open it! I did talk to the P.O person here today and she has given me a claim form,however that won't magic another one will it. I am so sorry it did not get to you.
Love the sense and sensibility-but then I would wouldnt I lol.
Hugs

Loved your March piece.

Tracey, what gorgeous stitching! Good luck with the post office--you have to wonder about what person would rip into an envelope & steal the contents. :P I've had that happen twice, both with gifts for my kids from relatives. I hope you get some satisfaction!

Lovely stitching and so sorry to hear about the fob!

Kimmie said...

Hi! I'm a new visitor. Just thought I'd say I'm working on that March block. In fact, it would probably get done quicker if I'd step away from the computer. :0)

Robin said...

Oh, that's awful that the fob was missing. I hope it was just a postal machine mistake. I hope they have it also. good luck!!!
