Lost fabric parcel.

Beautiful fabric!!! Those bundles would look right at home on my fabric
shelves. Are they from one collection or have they been put together from
random collections?

is the link to the first page of bundles.  I have the antique
collection (19) and the antique fl***(24) - they appealed to me
right now!  I have 'cold' feet right now - my tornado fan is blowing
on them and it is also working along with 3 other strategically placed
fans to keep the air conditioned breezes circulating.  I well remember
using a pot of cold water under my desk when I worked in an old
government library building - as you say, once the feet are cold, the
rest of the body cools quickly.  I don't know what it would be like
here if I were to bring out a bowl of water into the living room -
Jessie would think that it was drinking water, Katie would be
terrified, Winston would tip it up in an effort to protect his
'ladies' from something new and different while Sammie would wash her
paws before playing in it!  jennellh

I wondered when I saw Jeanne's thought about a pot of cold water for your
feet just how much entertainment that would bring to your lively gang of
QIs.  Polly

It's bad enough with the water bowl in the bathroom - Jessie considers
it to be hers alone and she requires it to be positioned just so plus
I have to top it up every time I go in there -she will only drink when
the water is a certain level.  She gets very angry and swears a lot
every day after Sammie goes in there and uses her paw to check for
level before she drinks - Jessie tells me every time that the water
tastes of 'paw' and she wants fresh!  Katie tries to slide in when
none of the others are around so that she can drink in private -
Jessie knocks her over if given the chance.  Winston - I've honestly
never seen him drink water - he must do it in the middle of the
night?  jennellh

I believe that they are two collections but I agree that they are very
close in value.  I have the perfect 'resting' place for them when they
arrive.  jennellh

Lost fabric parcel.

Fingers crossed:  they emailed to say that my 'new' parcel is being
shipped out with insurance!  They added that they hoped there would be
no more trouble with the Nepean PO - I hope so too - wonder why the
'trouble' has been assigned to the postal service here?  jennellh
