Some people like to build legos, I like to build…

When I said the other week that I had ordered something to help me along with my crafting, I never expected the reveal to take this long.

My package arrived last week….well sort of, the mail person suddenly decided that they were no longer driving boxes up to the house. I can understand that and respect their feelings now that we have two dogs, one being a jumper, I probably wouldn’t want to deal with that either.

Instead of a package I was left with a “Sorry we missed you, you can pick up your parcel after three” note 😭 a very sad not to get at 11:30 am when you are anticipating something magnificent.

So I picked up my package, gazed at the lovely wool and started putting the pieces together, but then something happened…a duplicate piece.

Uh oh. I got in touch with the dealer who had never before seen something like this and contacted Ashford straight away! Within a matter of hours it was settled, Ashford was sending me a new treadle. Friends said “why not flip the treadle and drill holes and use it in the meantime?”

Because this is built from the bottom up! No way I was going to build it and take it apart again….well now that it’s together I doubt I could anyway.

I waited and waited and waited for my new treadle, trying to occupy my mind on something other than a package coming from New Zealand.

Behold! Yesterday when I got home there was my correct treadle!!! There was also a note from Kate at Ashford apologizing, THANK YOU KATE!

I started building….and then stopped because there was food to cook, people to feed, and dishes to wash.

After dinner I went back to it

Here she is, the new Ashford Kiwi 3. I am in love.

Have a great day folks!!
