The Wrap and Ship Department at Needle Nicely

You'll have to excuse my tardy posting.  Yesterday was filled with goodies like hearing about my polyps from my colonoscopy; being assured that the bump removed from my thigh by my dermatologist was not going to start growing again; and finding out that my high calcium level was not yet worrisome.  In between doctor visits, Arthur and I stopped at Target for tp, Office Depot for printer ink; and Sam's for 2 wedges of Locatelli Parmesan cheese.  We also stopped for lunch at "Robert's by the Sea" (better known as Bobby's).  By the time I got back home, I was too frazzled to think about posting my blog entry for the day.

As I have mentioned before, I have been selling some discontinued fibers and elderly canvases on a website called The Needlepoint Nation Stash Exchange.  Buyers prefer that their canvases are rolled, rather than folded.  Previously, I have used corregated paper left over from the rugs shipped from various rug finishers over the years.  I've depleted that supply, so I had to break down and buy some on line.  The rolls come in a myriad of sizes from which to choose.  After much consideration, I settled on a roll of 24" wide x 250" long paper with single corregations.  That results in a roll of 24" wide by 23" tall.  The box it was shipped in was a foot wider in one direction.  The easiest way to deal with getting to  the roll was to cut the box away, side by side.
NOTE:  That yellow you see to the right back side of the photograph is the foam I sprayed to keep water from pouring in the back door as it did last summer.


  1. I googled the Needlepoint Nation Stash Exchange, but could not find a website. I found an old blog by that name - but there haven't been any new blogs on it for 10 years. Do you have a link to the site?

  2. It is a closed group and is part of Facebook. When you are on Facebook, there is a list on the left showing Needlepoint Nation, NNSE, and several other private groups. Ask for entry.
