I embroidered two pillowcases for my boyfriend after I received the fantastic SS sushi patterns from fellow craftster alwaysinmyroom. (Thanks linda!)

But I sent out my parcel to America five weeks ago and my boyfriend hasn't received these pillowcases yet! In my swap experience, parcels to the US of A usually take a week or two weeks max, to get to the receiptant..

I'm guessing that it's been lost en route, or some postal worker saw my declaration form and decided that he/she was in need of some new pillowcases...

I'm just assuming that we'll never see these pillowcases again. But on to the photos! Smiley

Edited on 4th of Dec to include:

My boyfriend received it! It finally reached its destination after like what, 7 or 8 weeks?

But thank you for all your lovely thoughts! I'm certain all the positive craftsters energy was what got the postal service off its ass and actually start working for a change. Smiley


Mmmmm, crabstick sushi!


Buckwheat soba noodles! Gotta love them when its eaten cold and with a raw quail egg!


The Chinese word is 'Yang', or goat. A nickname on my boyfriend's chinese name..


Who doesn't love sushi!?


Fishy fishy fishy..

Okay, thanks for looking guys!

your stitching skills are amazing! It's too bad that no one will be able to enjoy them. I especially like the fish at the end.

awww!
i hope they turn up.
i've had a couple parcels i've sent lost before... never an ebay package or YET a swap package, but it's really disappointing, especially if it was a present for someone special!  I guess you could do another set, but it won't be the same.

you did lovely work.

Awwww... That sucks!  I hope your packages are just delayed somewhere along the way, rather than completely AWOL. Sad  I know I've had packages get stuck at the border for over a month before... naughty customs people!

Very pretty job.  I've got my fingers crossed for you. Smiley

Your stitching is awesome, but I'm in love with your lucky cat! Fabulous work!
