Thank you for the hug teapotdnky-- I needed that!
This is what amaryllisroze was supposed to receive from me, rather than the pile of rubble that ended up on her doorstep:
Forgive the pics-- I took quick shots in the truck before I mailed them out! Anyway, it really did start out in one piece amaryllisroze! I totally intend to make you a new one, as I don't think it's fair for you not to receive what was promised! I will be having my dad whip up a new cross base for me this weekend and will send out a new one the beginning of next week. I'm so sorry this happened.
