When the good mail drops by

You know how annoying it can be waiting.....waiting......waiting for a package you've been expecting for some time. Because living on the arse-end of the earth can be a real bore when it comes to jetsetting post packages. That's alright! I know you all empathise.


But when they all arrive at once, its a never-ending surprise.....because sometimes you've forgotten you even put these in your online cart, oh, about a month ago. Sad, isn't it? (Lots of fabric and craft book porn in this post)


Anyhow, the good mail karma seems to go both ways! After my earlier post today, I'm thinking that my luck is definitely on the way up, because I'm happy to say that I'm sewing more smocks....to replace the ones that sold in the shop (who would've thought?!) and at the market.


So I'm giving myself a swift kick up the backside, as I'm easily staring at a few weeks worth of sewing to do......methinks its time for another blog break! Just a fortnight or maybe less......I'll see how I go.

In the meantime, I also have some good mail to send out. Hope you all get some good mail, too!

LOL, I was giggling all the way through reading your post, craft book porn (love that) and hmmm..I know too well about waiting for mail that takes forever. That's a big disadvantage of Tassie - the long postman waiting spell.

Oh I'll look forward to your next blog post in a while then :O)

I’m waiting for weeks now to receive two books I ordered. I’ve just got an e-mail, they will be here today!!! A blog break he, I think that’s the only way to get things done. But aren’t you tempted to read blogs from others?

Blog break - I appreciate the need for one but I will miss you already. Thank you for the excellent email today I have read it twice! Lots of sage advise there.

Whaddya meann "who would've thought?" WE would've thought -- everyone loves those jumpers! And if you must blog break, this would be the perfect time as I'll be doing so myself and that way I won't have to miss you when I get back! TeeHee!

Bonny said...

Love, love, love getting packages - and of course, I always start looking for it the very next day (even though I know full well it will take much longer! LOL) Your smocks are adorable - happy sewing!

Thimbleanna said...

P.S. I'm tagging you on my blog tonight if you'd like to play along... ;-)

I absolutely love the orange fabric. Would you share 'the name'
or manufacturer??

Oh, where do you begin to cut into such divine fabrics?? Do you stare for ages, measuring up, deciding where to start fabric surgery?? Congratulations on all the sales, how exciting!! Love Posie

Di said...

I love the fabric!! I just got my parcel from Z & S Fabrics!! I love it - but hey - you got the blue camper van fabric! I had to settle for the pink (heehee!)

I too am about to send out a few parcels of my own too!!
