Isabel's blanket at the beginning of March and posted if off to her on the 5th. I remember hurrying to get to the Post Office before it closed for the day. The blankets I posted to New Zealand took about three weeks to arrive, so I hoped that Isabel would get hers in Perth, Australia, before her birthday in early April. Mmm, no. It was delivered on Thursday, more than four months after I posted it! I'm just relieved that it has been delivered. I was beginning to wonder whether I'd best start making a replacement. Now I must post Annika's blanket. I have no confidence that it will arrive before her birthday at the end of August!

I think some of our post goes via the North or South poles too. Something posted to me via first class (which should arrive within 48 hours easily) took almost three weeks and that was from 'just up the road' in England!!!ReplyDelete
And then they wonder why people send e-mails rather than letters!Delete
Wow! Maybe it went the long way around?ReplyDelete
:-) it certainly did!Delete
I suppose the only consolation you have is that the blanket did actually arrive at its intended destination! It must have cost quite a lot to post it.ReplyDelete
I sent it surface mail, it wasn't too exorbitant, but yes, as long as it got there eventually I'm happy.Delete
How frustrating! I'm glad it finally arrived. Have I ever told you about the birthday card from my grandmother? It arrived on my birthday... 10 years after it was posted!ReplyDelete
Wow, it really took a detour!Delete
The one thing I have learnt about snail mail, you never know how long it will take, it might faster than expected or it could be so long you forget about it and think ok it's lost somewhere. It sounds like your blanket went by sea the long way around, so glad it got there.ReplyDelete
Thankfully it wasn't lost forever. The mail service is always iffy. Gorgeous Blankie! <3ReplyDelete
Beautiful blankets! :)ReplyDelete
That is sad that it takes to long to get there!!
As bad as Canada post...:))ReplyDelete
That was a BIG blaket to mail! Must have cost a fortune.
Not too bad by surface post. The post is certainly cheaper than a courier and the New Zealand ones all arrived very promptly, also sent surface mail.Delete
well so glad this blanket made it to it's destination it is all a good thing :)ReplyDelete
I heard your sigh of relief !!! Huge relief. Hugs.ReplyDelete
I would've lost my mind thinking all that beautiful effort wouldn't reach - and I've had a few of those with my handmade cards :-(
I hope that the blanket makes it, four months is a long time, it makes you think what you are paying your money for!ReplyDelete
