This week I finished White Nights house number two. Only six more to go! I also gave myself a treat by stitching some of the corner (Part 6). The house took four and a bit evenings. The corner, so far, what was left of my final evening.
For completeness, the overall view.
Here is the full story behind having two light trees. When the first light tree came, delivered by a private delivery company, not the Royal Mail or Parcel Force, the packaging was almost in two halves. Closer inspection revealed that the tree itself had sustained slight damage and the paint on the metal stand was chipped. I phoned the supplier and they said they would send a replacement. I asked if they would collect the damaged tree and was told that the delivery man would take it away when he delivered the new tree. This would be two days later on the Thursday. When I arrived home from work on that Thursday the replacement tree had been delivered, as promised, but the original one had not been taken away. Why? because the delivery driver did not have any paperwork to tell him to collect it, so he couldn't. This was four/five weeks ago. So I have two trees. Here's the proof.
As yet I don't think The Other Half has noticed the light tree forest, OK I know two trees do not make a forest, in the living room, as I only put the second tree up this evening, whilst he was out of course. But he will later, as for now, it's right next to the TV. Oh dear, I appear to how sprouted two horns and a forked tail. Maybe I should do some Halloween stitching this evening.
