So close.... (and, postal shock)
I have come so close to finishing Judith's Neighborhood Round Robin tonight... soooo close. I had hoped I would, and then planned to even put it in the mail to An tomorrow. But it is too late at night to stitch the clouds and little border of cherries. I don't want to mess up. I will finish tomorrow and DH will post it to An on Monday.
And, speaking of the post office, DH says that one of the clerks at the post office has alerted him that there will be yet another postal increase very soon - didn't they just have one?? This one annoys me more than they usually do, as the service has gone downhill drastically and rapidly, in my observation. As you know, I have several packages in the post for weeks (and months) now that have not reached their destinations - even using Global Priority Mail, which is so very not cheap! And, I am not alone. The HoE Scissor Fob exchange has up to six packages lost and/or delayed in the post... that is a high percentage for that group. I see in many blogs that they are frustrated with slow and inconsistent postal service as well, yet the USPS has the guts to raise the rates again. Sigh....
