Moose and Mountains – Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern -18 x 31″ – $450CAD

It’s been an interesting week.  Look who came home!  Yep, Moose & Mountains found its way from my place in Regina, to O’Hare International Processing Centre in Chicago, and then we lost track of it.  It was supposedly heading for South Carolina, but never showed up.  That was last spring.

Fast forward to September.  I am on my business page on Facebook one day when a post appears.  A lady named Alice had Moose & Mountains in Philadelphia!

The story is it actually showed up in a shipment to a Philadelphia auto shop.  They didn’t know what it was, but knew Alice to be a crafty lady.  So they gave it to her to deal with.  She did an Internet search and, with a bit of sleuthing, turned up my business page on Facebook.

However that’s not the end of the story.  Alice went away for holidays and I didn’t hear from her for a long time.  I figured the wall hanging was gone for good.  Imagine my delight at seeing an email from Alice last weekend saying she was sending it via UPS and it should arrive in two days!  Well, it took four, but it arrived…safe and sound!  Thank-you Alice!…and UPS!

So now it is adorning the back of my living room love seat.  I look at it and marvel at where it’s been and the power of the Internet.  So glad the lost is found.  Moral of story: use UPS to ship items to the USA.
