Tomorrow could be a fun day at the mail box but it will also probably get a not so fun response from my husband who doesn’t quite understand why I need to have so much stuff being delivered. Men! What he needs is a hobby that requires stuff he doesn’t have already. There is no way I can get this stuff in the house without being noticed. The most likely scenario is that we have to go somewhere tomorrow – we do .. I already know that, and on our way home, he’ll stop at the mail box and it will be stuffed full of packages and he will not be happy. But . . I say . . he’ll get over it.
Here’s the list from Informed Delivery.
That’s seven packages.
- One from Etsy – it’s a piece of goldish brown linen – one piece!
- One from Cross Stitching Supplies – it’s less than 20 skeins of floss.
- One from Colour & Cotton – a subscription to dyed floss. I think it’s 6 skeins. This will just be my second time to get this.
- Four from 123 Stitch. Even these four don’t add up to much. One has 10 skeins of floss; one has about 12 skeins of floss and a piece of Ancient linen. Remember the little piece I did that has blue splotches on the linen? They got more of that in so I ordered a piece of that. Another package has 4 skeins of floss and the last package has one skein of floss.
I think you will agree that all of that adds up to not much $$. With 123 Stitch, sometimes things are in stock, I order them and apparently everyone else is ordering them so by the time they’re fulfilling my order, which is usually the same day, it’s out of stock. I could order 20 skeins of floss and get it in three or four different shipments. The last two packages are parts of older orders that I’ve already received. At least I don’t have to pay shipping since I paid it once on an initial order.
No charts; only two pieces of linen – mostly floss, but still . . a lot of packages.
