A couple of weeks ago, I received this from my friend Ragna (no blog) in Norway.
7.7 kg / approximate 17 pound of fabrics! How great is it to have such a friend?! Ragna doesn't quilt anymore, due to some health problems. When she tidied up her sewing room, she thought of me - me - ME!!! Dear Ragna, once again; thank you very, very much!
There are quite some florals, which I don't have much of. Some checks as well as some Christmas fabrics.
... and lots of solids! (Which I don't have much of either!) Look at all the yummy colors!
I was quite worried the parcel wouldn't make it all the way to Mauritius, since I didn't receive it after 2-3 weeks! It was sent by airmail and was supposed to take 7-15 business days - they said at the post office where it was sent from. By experience I know parcels never make it in 7 days, except if it is written 'documents' on the envelope. After 3-4 weeks and no parcel, we began to ask at our local post office, and was told they have 'problems with mail from Europe', without explaining that further.... Well, I waited and waited, and finally after 3 months - the parcel arrived!!! Just as if nothing had happened! It was in very good condition, no stamps with 'missent' to any other country or anything... Most probably it has been stuck in transit somewhere in Europe, or..... it could be it has been sleeping in a corner at the custom here too.... only the parcel can tell.... but it won't tell me - lol!
Well, the most important is it DID ARRIVE, even if it took 3 months - instead of 2-3 weeks!
I'm still busy with some bags. I intended to go shopping for velcro (?) and buttons today, but all the house rabbits called me..... They were near to overtake the entire house! :)
