What was I going to say?

Well the excitement of that football match, (poor Brazil), meant I didn't show you the little instant gratification I indulged in beforehand last night.  Sorry.

It may be a bit 2012, but I felt like using up some of my selvedges, not that I have masses, but enough for a good rummage.

So another little needle book…


I used some lovely felt from Eternal Maker, and a little of Aneela's Hello Petal dots for the lining…


It is roughly 4" square and I am thinking will become home to all my new needles and pins for FQR.


Oh I never told you the full saga of the needles did I!?

I ordered a pack of Chenille size 24 from John Lewis.  Picked them up in store and was so flabbergasted by the football sized box they came in, I didn't notice until I got home that they were a size 22.  I rang Customer Services, they said I could keep them and they would send me another pack.  Pack 2 arrived, um, size 22.  I rang again, replacement offered.  2 days later, another pack of size 22!

So the warehouse was asked to actually check they had some 24s.  They didn't.  So I am getting a £15 voucher for my trouble, as well as a refund.

The replacements are already on their way from eBay.

The moral of this story… I am not entirely sure!

  2. Are you watching tonight's game... I do not know if I want to keep watching. I am tired and if we win , the noise outside will wake me up anyway. It is almost midnight, and if they keep up this game it may be penalties as 01:00 AM. We have to be at school tomorrow at 8:30...
    Oh my word... That was almost a goal for Argentina.
    I better turn off the tv and go to bed... :-)

  3. better than Tesco customer service. I bought hot dogs for our 4th July tea and they were 10 days out of date. Quote "well, you'll have to go and get some more from the shelf then " Moi? And indeed I did, and the rest of them were out of date too.

    1. They can be fined £1000 for each pack that's out of date by the health inspector!! Wow, that's awful!
