Where did this last week go?
I haven’t quite finished the Gecko yet, but I do have a FO to show you that has a bit of a story behind it.
I signed up to the FreshStitches Kit Club last year with the first shipment was sent mid December 2012. Usually shipping from the US to New Zealand takes about a week. With the Christmas post I figured it would take a bit longer to arrive. Mid January arrives and still no package so I figured it was lost in the postal system somewhere.
The second shipment of the kit club was sent mid February, 1 week later it arrives in my mailbox. But look what turned up the following week
That’s right. It’s the first kit club shipment. It only took 2 months and a week!! Looks pretty good for a box that spent so much time in the postal system. I really wish it could talk and say where it when. I figure there are 2 possibilities. First, the New Zealand written on the box was not seen and it went to Christchurch, England, instead before being redirected to the correct country. The second possibilities is that the air mail stamp was not seen and it came by boat across the Pacific Ocean!
I like the second possibility because the kit was for this guy
The Pacific Ocean is a long swim for a little crab. The beads on Tipper the Crab were the special treat in the kit. I think the real treat was getting to use 100% wool when usually I use acrylic because that is all I can get with a decent variety of colours. I can’t wait to make more of these tiny crabs. Maybe without the beads next time.
