A while ago, we were discussing basting guns and i said i had one, loved it but hadn't got the grate - just put my hand under the quilt and shot between my fingers! Good ol' BW saw this and, being concerned for my safety ( :wink: ), told me she was sending me her basting grate! Weeks went by and it never arrived - we'd given it up as lost forever! :cry:
BUT apparently, the label had fallen off with BOTH our addresses on - luckily they sent it back to her local PO where they recognised the parcel and took it back to her! So she sent it again and it FINALLY made it to France!
I tell you, there was no WAY that label would have fallen off a second time - it took me AGES to get all the tape off the parcel! :lol: AND to make sure the grate survived the trip intact, she wrapped it up in lots of lovely 30s fabric!
Thank you so much, my friend - you're the best!
:D :D :D
