Saved mail

I was extremely lucky this week to finally receive a long awaited parcel. Maree was cleaning out her linen closet and sent me these lovely tablecloths and doilies three weeks ago.

I thought that they had disappeared forever - swiped by the posties.

This was the third postage issue this month. A couple of weeks ago, I received all of my next door neighbours mail, and then last week I received mail for a completely different address (which was actually a Boulevard, when I live in a Street), so I really didn't hold out much hope for the missing parcel.

I'm so glad that it finally arrived so that I can start daydreaming about all of the crafty projects that I can experiment with!

Thankyou so much Maree.

Two parcels I posted last week have not yet arrived at their destinations, so your story gives me a glimmer of HOPE.
It's all a bit of a gamble relying on the old Australia Post...I get nervous every time I deposit my packages into the dark depths of the letter box!

Divine! Can't wait to see what you're up to with them! :)
I always wanted to live in a 'boulevard' as it sounds SO posh but nono, I live in a street too! ;)

HI there Curlypops! Hope you are well. Sorry for the long comment here, I tried to email you but my gmail seems broken right now ...

... I've decided I want to help out the Sacred Heart Mission Dining Hall with some new aprons, using your marvellous tea-towel apron idea - they have vintage tea towel decorations inside the hall and I though it would work really well with their theme. So I wanted to say thank you for the idea firstly, and secondly, ask if there's a particular pattern you use for the apron shape, or if it's just something you do out of your head?!

Yay, thank you! (gmail still not working properly). I am already indebted to you for the creative idea. I was thinking I'd like to take a little pile along on my next volunteer day, which is around the end of August - about a month away. Hopefully that will be plenty of time to get support from people in the crafty community (not to mention making the actual aprons ....)
