But with a happy endng.
Remember the photos of the buttons I showed you a couple of days ago? Hmmmm? I got my order in the mail Wednesday. Opened up the envelope and the order was all wrong.
The buttons for Roscalie were Celtic crosses rather than round buttons with Celtic knotwork on them. And the buttons for Beadwork were the right ones, but there were two fewer than I had ordered, with a note on the receipt saying that’s all they had in stock.
(It seems to me that sending two fewer buttons than ordered rather than contacting the customer is not a good thing. Maybe it’s just me.)
I sent off an email to the place, telling them I wanted to return the order and within an hour, got a phone call from the proprietor, apologizing profusely for the problems.
So I mailed back the buttons yesterday and will be receiving the correct buttons for Roscalie, and the correct number of buttons for Beadwork, in gold instead of copper (which I think will work just as well) because they had enough of the gold ones. And she ain’t charging me for the extra two Beadwork buttons.
Doncha just love happy endings? Sniff, sniff . . .
Still plugging away on the first sleeve.
I see Joe is ahead of me on his Donegal sleeve!
Estimated Start Date for Beadwork
I’m thinking I won’t start this until I com back from vacation in early July. When I finish Roscalie, maybe I’ll work full time on the Dale baby sweater.
Will be announced Monday. Lucy is thinking about it . . .
