Some lovely friends were having a baby. I wanted to surprise the new mum-to-be, so I asked her husband how they were decorating or what colours they preferred. At that time they had only bought one decoration for their girl’s room, and it was rainbow coloured. They didn’t want to be inundated with pink. I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but I’d have to order fabric from overseas. Drat.
So first I started another quilt. If the fabric didn’t arrive in time for me to whip up a quilt before we headed overseas to Japan, at least they’d have something. And I could always send the quilt I wanted to make for them later.
Not awful, but not the quilt I had my heart set on making for them! And the fabric from overseas had gone lost. The tracking said it was delivered, but it hadn’t been. Then a week later, a battered and soggy package arrived. The fabric?! Luckily the water hadn’t penetrated all the packaging. I have no idea where it had been!
