I don't collect thimbles although I do a lot of cross stitch and felt sewing.
Some time ago my friend Kim of Wisdom with needle and thread organized an exchange and I decided to take part! Thanks for organizing this Kim!
My exchange partner was Christy from Peru.(No blog)
I posted my parcel to Peru at the end of April.
This is what I included.
I am not sure if there was anything else in the parcel.I don't remember any more.
Christy posted her parcel to me at the beginning of May.
Some time at the end of May Christy and I started communicating daily by e-mail in Spanish (I know a little bit) and English (she knows a little bit) trying to understand each other and trying to realise what had happened to our parcels. She hadn't received mine and I hadn't received hers.
The funny thing was that we had both posted our parcels registered so we could follow them!
Her parcel to me finally arrived at the beginning of June after she had filed a claim.It took it one month and a week.
It was a lovely parcel filled with goodies.
Here is what she sent me!
I was shocked. I had the post office receipt that I had paid registered for Peru! So I too filed a claim. To which I have not received an answer yet!
But at last yesterday Christy recieved my parcel!HURRAY! It took my parcel almost two months to reach Peru and it was a registered parcel I had paid almost 10 euros only for postage for such a small parcel! I think that this was the last exchange I am taking part in I am sorry to say!
I also have mailed my Mail Art parcel and have received nothing in return not even a note that my parcel was received.
Postal services worldwide stink!And here speaks a lover of mail and postal exchanges!
