For those of you just joining me, I am writing about the process of creating a made to order neckpiece for an Australian bride. The dates at the top of each post show the time period covered.
January 24, 2011
In my last entry, I told you I would wait 6-10 days and let you know when/if the neckpiece arrived in Australia. Well, it has been 10 days and still no word.
On January 22, I left for an annual cross country ski trip in Algonquin Park in Canada. It was killing me to leave without knowing whether or not the piece had arrived. So I bought an international data plan to stay in touch. Every time my email notification went off, my friends would say- "Check your email, Betty. It could be Priscylla!" But I still had not heard from her when I arrived home on the 25th.
On a good note, the trip was great fun! Every year, we get together with a group of our friends for a weekend of skiing and eating. The weather is almost always cold and snowy, this year we had temperatures as low as minus 30 Fahrenheit. I just thought I would include this pic of myself and 2 friends after a day subzero skiing.
After I returned home, I couldn't wait any longer and emailed Priscylla to see if she had heard anything. She had not. I began looking for the paperwork for the postal insurance- just in case...and worrying! Nothing to do but wait. Some more.
I will post again when there is any news. The wedding was Feb. 12- so there was still time. But really- I was worried!
Meanwhile, I thought it would be fun to post some pictures of some of the pieces I made with the "leftover" components and beads from the neckpiece. If you have been following the blog, I'm sure you will recognize a lot of these pieces!!
So till next time...!
