A Mystery

Do you wonder what your parcels get up to after you mail them?
I don’t usually, but a little surprise package that arrived recently, has me wondering.
There it was - a mystery parcel from Canada. The customs label said “fabric”. What could it be?
Had I been ordering more fabric on line? In my sleep, surely?

Then I saw the date April 19, 2012! Over 2 months ago? Very curious!
Oh well, nothing for it, but to open it and find out what goodies lay within.

Leslie from the cuddle quilter had a giveaway all those months ago and had mailed them off to me in April.

So, little parcel, what have you been up to in the last 2 months?
Was it Ausralia Post that has been holding you hostage?
or Canada Post not wanting to let one of it’s little babies head out into the big wild world?
Were you just holding off for "Christmas in July"?

We will never know! but I'm really glad you eventually made it here!

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

  1. I've had some parcels take as long to arrive, we always joke mine have been on holiday in the South of France, it's warmer than here!! :-)

  2. Sometimes I swear that parcels from America travel right around that country and then do a loop of ours before they arrive in our letter box. Lovely surprise for you though. x

  3. No fun when parcels are late - even less fun when they never arrive! I've given up on a giveaway prize I won that never did come...I wonder where it is??

  4. My money is on Australia Post lol.


Nice of you to take a peek over the fence. It's lovely to meet you. Do come in, have a cuppa and a chat. I will talk back...
