Did you hear that thump?

Tuesday, 9 August 2011
That was me falling off the wagon.

It was bound to happen but I've impressed myself I've managed to hold on till August.  To be fair, my no stash clause did let me get anyhing that were limited editions so I'm able to justify ordering a Just Nan WhimZi Box (I got the Lock Out one) as they are 'extremely' limited according to Needlecraft Corner.  But having reserved one of those I then had to order the Bat Halloween Token to put in it.

The tokens aren't limited editions but I used my good friend Sheila's rule of stash ordering - you can't order just one thing, it gets lonely in the envelope.

And in the same vein, if I'm going to make an order from the US ordering what amounts to two tiny items is not really justifying the postage costs which is why I ended up putting myself on the auto ship programme for Lizzie*Kate's 6 Fat Men.  No official pics have been released yet but there are some teasers on her blog.

And if I'm ordering those I should get the special cut of fabric for them and the floss that I'll need too right?  Makes economic sense.

But that's it.  I stopped there.  I totally wanted to order Just Nan's Halloween Party and WhimZi Pockets as I love them but they're not limited editions and I really cannot justify any more spending (I've got the JCS Halloween Special on order too). 

So the last two will go on my wish list and maybe Santa will be kind to me. Everything is on order with Drema at Needlecraft Corner (no affiliation just a happy customer of many years) and she says it should be due to ship around 26th August.

Now I just have to find some patience from somewhere...

I totally agree with you - you have order enough to justify the shipping cost from the States!! - my excuse and I'm sticking to it - lol

Lol. I love your justification, which I obviously totally agree with.

I am so glad you listened to my Words of Wisdom.
I think there will be a loud, raucous and fun party going on in your package.
No genteel soiree with elegant cocktails for that lot when they cross the sea :)
