Not Again!.

Is the Heart, Land of Laces lost? Has it gone astray in the post? Will my friend receive it? Has it gone to join the still-missing shuttles and thread in New York? Arghhhhh!!!

I mailed the mat to my friend in a very secure, well addressed, proper Canadian Post Office envelope and it should have arrived by now, but I have heard not a word from my friend. I know she would have at the very least sent an email, as it would have been a complete surprise. Nothing.

Figures. That pattern and thread were severely jinxed

Moving on...  Here are the two projects I am working on. The hankie edge is over half-way done (and I still have lots of thread!). The Renulek Wiosna 2016,  Row 7 is halfway finished as well.


  1. You've made great progress on your tatting projects. I sure hope you get word from you friend soon that the mat arrived safely.

  2. I like how you match your shuttles to the tatting.
    Lets hope the post delivers your packages soon . . .
    Will the mysterious disappearance in New York re-emerge one fine day? Only time will tell.

  3. I hope it's not lost, just delayed. It would be so sad to lose it. The doily and edging look wonderful!

  4. Wow that is one unusual doily with a personality of its own. Love this blue color one and edging too where did you say you got that beautiful shuttle from?

  5. I know you live in a more civilised part of the world than I do, but postal systems can be erratic - don't panic yet!

  6. Or the recipient could be in the midst of a crazy bit of life. Don't worry, when received, it will be greatly appreciated!

  7. I love how bright and beautiful that edging is!!!! :)
    And you are doing fantastic on your doily!!! :)

  8. I agree with Jane, don't panic just yet. Canada post is getting pretty terrible in my opinion. Your doily and edging are looking great.

  9. Beautiful work on your doily,
    Don't panic yet, you just seem to be unlucky with that pattern and mat. Hope it arrives soon
    Love to Mr G
