Disappointment

I'm a little disappointed today - my Connecting Threads order didn't come! I think it's because I so rarely order stuff online (half a dozen times a year?) that I count each second it's supposed to arrive. I check the tracking number about 200 times. It hasn't been updated since the 10th. And it said it'd be here on the 13th! Hmmph.

To console myself, I just made my purchase from Amazon.com. :D Hopefully it'll come some time next week and I'll bury my nose in the books while everybody else can enjoy Thanksgiving and the mad rush of Black Friday. Have fun! ;)

I got this in the mail last week, all the way from England! A cute purple needle book.

Thanks Anne, I love the colors, and completely agree with the statement! I think I've only mended 2 things since I got married. One time was when a button popped off my husband's dress shirt. I took it to my machine right there, right then and sewed it back on before I could think about forming a complaint. The other item was a pair of exercise pants and the decorative side strip popped open a few inches.

No mending for me! I have a sister who loves to sew clothes and we made a deal - she'll sew whatever clothes I (or any future kids) need, and I'll make quilts for her and her someday kids. ;)

mending??? I that like ironing something other than fabric???? I was doing a bunch of hubby's shirts the other night and it killed my iron. Seriously it just died in the middle of the shirt. Lucky for me I had a spare brand new in the box iron. Now I have to remember to buy another one.Cause you never know when these things will poop out on you...but cute needle case.

Glad it arrived safely and that you like it - sounds like a good deal you've got going there with your sister - sadly mine only does cross-stitch which isn't much use to me :o)
