First, the good news:
Isn’t it a lovely colour? And the work is so neat, too! Susana also added a cute needle holder, about the size of a coin purse.
Now for the bad news.
My swapee partner wrote to me that she has received the envelope and the letter I wrote her, but not the doily! Arghhhh! Waaah! As you can see, I don’t know whether to scream or cry. Scream in anger or cry in disappointment. Apparently the envelope had been slit open (presumably by the customs, I knew putting in that steel hook was a mistake , those people probably thought it was a weapon of mass destruction or something…) and there was no doily in it. Bah!
Since it is now lost anyway, I thought I’d reveal what it looked like:
My first-ever Irish crochet piece and it’s now lost. What a shame!
