The last day of January was a busy one in The KAS Barn. Enjoy Estelle's weekly report.
So many bright and colourful blankets. Love all the picture squares.
Wow what a wonderful collection of colour and worldly love!
What fun it is to see a new year open with so many beautiful blankets and squares.
No new post today in The Barn, still, the Barn was full of activity. Here is Estelle's report.
Wow! I can see my fox together with my hearts in a blanket ! Thank you.
Well a day late and a dollar short...as the saying goes here in the US.
Here is Estelle's jolly report from The Barn on Valentine's Day 2023.
Wasn't sure where to post this, but anyway, just wanted to mention a postage disaster.
Today I had 4 parcels returned to me by the post office. One was sent in December 2021, the others February, April, and May 2022. I am not sure what I am going to do with them. Sadly they are all very large parcels of 3kg or more and I just can't afford to send them by Airmail.
I will contact the Post office on Monday and see if they can suggest anything as I don't think the parcels even left Australia and I paid well over $100 in postage on them.
I am really disappointed that the children have missed out on the blankets etc from these. Both my heart and my head hurt about this.
Oh Wendy honey I'd be in bits about this too. Simply not good enough to be treated this way. I'd be complaining too demanding the matter be sorted. I'm so sorry for you Xx
Wendy, this in incredibly sad news. Your work, blankets and hand-warmers, are incredible and to think they have been waiting to be shipped to SA is so tragic.
I hope you get some positive news on Monday, if not, I know there are organizations at home that would love to receive your work.
Please keep us posted.
I can understand how you feel, Wendy. I'd be heartbroken if this happened to me. I hope you can find some sort of solution even if it means donating to another charity, as Amy suggests.
Wendy, Our hearts and heads hurt as well! I hope a conversation with a postal manager provides a decent explanation, and an offer to make it right!
