Whenever I read this I ask myself: Why am I moving to the land of -40 degrees Celsius and sketchy postal system? Why? Oh yeah my hubby, Tim Hortons and Socialized healthcare;). I'm not looking forward to the wait times once I move.

Question time: So for those of you who are doing connected hoops are you planning on connecting them before you finish the backs or after?  I was going to do it before (actually in the middle of it) when my mom said: "NOOOOO!  If you continue on while you're doing the backs everything will be flopping around." Ugh, she's so right.  But I'm worried if I do it later my stitches will come out wonky because I'll be worried about not hitting my back fabric.  Any suggestions?

i had a similar concern... my main worry was what if it was handled roughly in the mail or dropped or one of them fell off the wall and not the other? i was worried about tearing out stitching or something - actually the whole finishing the back thing hadn't occurred to me yet... basically, i figured out how i wanted them to attach to each other, and i'm going to incorporate fasteners into the design at the appropriate location (with reinforcement) so that the two can be attached/detached easily for shipping/storage/whatever without damaging them or requiring needle&thread reassembly...

if it helps. -40Cis where the two measurement scales converge...so -40c is the same as -40f. but really once it is past -15 it's just cold....
and while i rag quite heavily on canpost it is not alwyas their fault... i mean,  it's not canada's border security it needs to clear. and from my house to the border is two hours....some of my us packages go across continent... in a reasonable time frame. the us post (or whatever other counrty involved) is also partly responsible... especially with weird weather.

but roll up the rim helps with the waits,  that and  decent beer.  Smiley

You get used to the cold temperatures! I used to really feel the cold, but last year I moved into a house which only has one electric storage heater, in the bedroom. Throughout most of the winter it was about 40f inside my living room, and I adapted to it. I've got a heated sofa blanket, thick jumpers and I drank lots of hot chocolate!

Im currently laughing at Sloths explanation on Canada Post. The mail center for my part of NewZealand... goes through Christchurch... that city thats been flattened by that earthquake  Cheesy  Tongue I think thats why it takes me ages to get mail from Canada  Wink the Canadians dont want to loose their mail in another quake  Cheesy

Meanwhile, on a crafty stage, Im still mucking around, Ive got two swaps due out Monday, Im hoping that mail starts happening by then else Ill have to be a late sender  Undecided which will annoy me (understandable when you see what Chch looks like though)
