Wall of Yarn

May 24th, 2006

I put my piece for Nikki-Shell’s wall of yarn in the mail yesterday. I hope it makes its way to Australia by the June 9 deadline. I don’t have much experience with international post and what I do have is with the postal system in Italy, which I don’t think is much to hang a hat from. It’s a six-inch knitted square made from hand-spun, hand-dyed yarn from my Second String swap. I painted a scrap piece of canvas and stitched it along with the polka dot trim. I think it’s pretty cute!

Some of you early birds have already sent in your gift tags for the swap. Thanks! I’m starting to get an idea of what 200 gift tags is going to look like to sort through. But are they oh-so pretty – so pretty! I’m amazed by you gorgeous creative women.

    Ah, I too have experienced the Italian postal system! A postcard mailed from Rome’s main post office that tooks 5 months to deliver to the US, and yet one dropped in a mail box in a mini rural town delivered in 6 days. Go figure. Hopefully Australia is a lot more on the ball!

    Ciao Dacia,
    thank you for stopping by my blog, really. After your comment I’ve spent time on reading your posts, I think we could share something like our exepience in living in Italy, couldn’t we? I hope you’ve passed great time here, even if our mailing system doesn’t work so well!!! Beautiful piece, see you on the wall of yarn.

    Hmmm… I’ve started my little square for Nichola’s wall. Problem being I live in Melbourne so I can leave it until the day before, can’t I ????? Love the pressure of the deadline. Story of my life. Must say though that your little square has inspired me to get my act together. It’s lovely.
