Unfortunately, it seems that my first parcel went missing, so Jill F. did an amazing job on sending me another package - and so quickly too!
Jill not only replaced the stitching piece, but included a whole heap of extras too - I really appreciate your kindness Jill, it was truly a lovely gesture, and so much fun to explore!
Unfortunately, my camera doesn't hold charge long enough to take photos *and* upload them in the same session so pictures will be uploaded tomorrow, and the stitched piece really is a wow and I think it deserves showing off! Thank you again!
(and thank you to Carol too, who seemed just as nervous as Jill and I were about the state of the postal service and who co-ordinated everything so well)
