Happy, Happy Mail Day!
It's a happy day today because the mailman has been! What's the big deal about that you might be wondering. Well, if there's a downside to living in Spain it has to be the mail delivery which is hit and miss at the best of times but during the months of July and August it is definitely a case of more miss than hit.
I can go for a week without getting so much as a bill and when you're waiting for something to arrive that you might be looking forward to it's a frustrating experience.
I had ordered some quilting fabrics from Hancock's of Paducah on 9th July and the package arrived this morning. That's just over three weeks airmail!!!!
Sadly three of things I had ordered were out of stock but here's what I did get.
Red and white print to finish off some of the Redwork stitcheries I plan on doing and a cute rooster print fabric to make a quilted wallhanging for the Redwork rooster (see previous post.)
I also have a yard of Kona cotton Snow for embroidery projects. Up to now I've just been practising on muslin but am ready to work on something nicer. and a half yard of a pale blue floral that I loved because it has a shabby chic look to it.
I also have a copy of the Hancock's catalogue. Wow, this will keep me happily browsing fabrics for hours on end. I'm sure to be ordering again soon thus starting a whole new cycle of waiting for the mailman.
Here's wishing everyone a happy mail day today!
