A little while ago a friend of mine who lives in East Timor bought one of my quilts for her friend who had recently adopted a baby girl. My friend had adopted two Timorese boys previously and had bought my quilts for them. So I was pleased as punch and sent over my favourite 'girly' quilt.
But... It never arrived. And me being a bit of a novice at this, stupidly hadn't sent it registered mail so I couldn't track it. So that gorgeous quilt is lost in the Australia Post ether.
I did feel quite heartbroken, but now I'm just getting on with it, making another one, and learning my lesson. You can be sure that if you buy a quilt from me now, you will have it sent registered mail!
