Leaving on a Jet Plane

My Endurance Necklace is winging it's way to Vivian in Canada.  So I guess you could say that it couldn't go much further.  I asked the Australia Post lady how long it would take and she said that probably about 10 days.  She said to me (with a perfectly straight face too I might add) that Australia Post is pretty good but once it leaves the country it is anyones guess.   My experience has been once it hits these shores thats when the trouble begins.    Like my original swap parcel that I should of got the next day after it was posted but took a week and the girl from Queensland got hers before me and that is the other side of the country and the books dispatched direct from Melbourne that took longer than the ones that had to be ordered in from the US.

Only a few more sleeps till Inspired Stitches I am just about beside myself with excitement.  I want to put some binding on a quilt for show and tell, hopefully sometime tonight, I doubt there will be much distraction on the box tonight so shouldn't be too difficult.  Only have to get through 2 more days of work and 2 days of kiddie entertainment. 

NOTE TO SELF: Next school holidays organise some time off and some vacation care for the kids so that they don't drive my MIL nuts.

Truer words were never said Aust post is hopeless. See you on the weekend.

Well at least the mail no longer has to come via dog team, so that should save a bit more time! As long as it stops snowing sometime soon.
I will post when the necklace arrives, I can't wait!
