Right, so I'm getting nervous about my package reaching shazrasha.  Anyone know how long it usually takes packages to cross the Atlantic? It's hovering around two weeks that it's been in transit, now.  I really hope it's just being leisurely in its passage!

Check out my hand-dyed fiber!

No need to worry too much yet, joyousbohemian, I know I have had to wait up to four weeks and longer for parcels from abroad before.  Smiley

post is really weird, I have had stuff delivered in 4 days and to the same country again in four weeks  Huh

I think my parcel has been about the same timed away. I hope it gets there so will cross my fingers for both of us  Grin

Been about two weeks for mine too. Well, it would have left the post office two weeks ago today. I don't know about the USA but over here (UK) weekends pretty much don't count as basically the postal service shuts down after twelve on a Saturday. Although they do deliver post on a Saturday, if you're expecting a parcel you can almost guarantee it won't arrive on the weekend. *shrugs* My last swap package took about twelve days to arrive at its destination, though the one I got in return took a month - my poor partner was tearing her hair out.

I am so nervous waiting for my parcel to arrive (in both directions) that in order to calm myself I attempted some cog biscuits  Cool They weren't brilliant for a first attempt but I thought you might like the photoshoot I then but them in  Roll Eyes

I tried to take in progress pictures but they failed. Will be making more this weekend and will get photos then.
But here is a brief summary:

Start with two lots of your chosen cookie dough. one flavoured with cocoa and one vanilla (or whatever, go wild!). I used Swedish shortbread.
Roll out a thin sausage of the vanilla, then a rectangular strip of cocoa to wrap round it.
Next roll out several thin sausages of vanilla and cocoa and place them next to eachother to create a stripey rectangular sheet. Make sure the first and last ones are one vanilla and one cocoa. I think I will have to use more of these next time as I only got 6 spokes. wrap this around the centre. Finally roll or flatten out vanilla to wrap the whole thing. Use any leftovers to make odd shaped biscuits.

Let it sit in the fridge for a bit to harden then slice off biscuits. I ended up having to gently prod them back into being round. It helps to put it on a baking sheet when you want to wrap the layers too.

Happy baking!  Grin
