@Francesca I contacted Royal Mail and have done all that I can but no joy. You can claim the postage back if you have proof of posting but apart from that I'll have to make do with an apology.  :'(
Gutted.

I do still have the tracking receipt so I will be able to claim back the material cost but of course they don't account for your time.

I've just had another parcel go missing the RM and honestly I'm done with them.

I have some fabric on order for a replacement though and it'll be BETTER than the previous one ;) Though you might have to wait a little bit... I want to get it perfect!

They just got back to me this morning so that's why I'm letting you know.

I feel gutted for you too, @wrenkins - you were so looking forward to your cushion cover - but how thoughtful of @Francesca to be making you another one. <3

No! Oh how exciting.  0_0
My Amazon order arrived today but no surprise parcels. If it's addressed correctly, it'll get here. It's the only thing that's ever been lost and surely it can't happen twice.....surely..... surely???

I didn't send it with RM this time, didn't trust it! So it went out with the courier on Friday but it's a slower service than RM.

It was Hermes who delivered my Amaz*n thing today and there's lots more things to come this week so it should be here soon.
I'm so excited!!!!!

Oh they’re all gorgeous. I particularly like the ring of pin wheels ( don’t know who made it) . That design could also look really pretty made to look like a Christmas wreath for a Christmas cushion.

Sorry , did I just mention Christmas in July?🤭

Thanks @Sheilago The pinwheels are called Friendship Stars. I went all deep and meaningful.  :D Circle of friends and all that... (Anything to distract from the questionable skills).
You're right it would make a lovely wreath. The tulip FPP block of the month (can't remember which month) also makes up to a fab wreath with very little tweaking (but mine's easier).  ;)

Just checked the tracking and as of Tuesday it'd only made it as far as Boreham Wood. No update since then. Let's hope it's there soon!
