I am so not upset anymore

You wouldn't believe it but Larry (my darling husband - and yes he is British and his mother really did name him Larry and it's not short for anything) had picked up the post and thought that the two brown stiff envelopes were from the book company I had ordered the two smaller grandchildren's'

Son, Darling Daughter-in-law, and 5 year old Grandson and 3 year old Granddaughter
books for Chanukah (that's Christmas to the rest of you but earlier).  However he never noticed, and I must admit neither did I, that  they were different sizes and it wasn't until last night when I was walking upstairs that I looked down the stairs that I noticed.  One was the books (I hope cause I haven't opened it up yet) and the other one was the parcel from Karla with  all my stuff in it.  So it didn't get lost at all and I have it and am going to serge (overlock) the fabric tomorrow and I have more fabric to serge because I have only just bought another one.  Long story but I sold my original one about 4 years ago because I was never going to stitch again and here I am stitching again and loving every second of it.

This is some things I stitched in the past

Until next time

I am pretty upset right now

Why you ask (if you are reading this)?  Because the wonderful Karla from The Patchwork Rabbit sent me these things

1.  A special cut of Zweigart 36count Floba Superfine (Cream) to stitch

Mary Hurst 1661
And the chart as well AND

All Was for an Appil
Mary Gail

And some silk threads as well for another project.  It was sent out first class last Wednesday before 2pm and the envelope still hasn't arrived.

Maybe I will have better news on Monday.

So in the meantime
