Continuing saga of the beads

My phone rang this morning. I was hoping it was from someone I'd wanted to hear from. Well, sort of. It was someone I wanted to hear from with something I didn't quite want to hear. It was a woman from UPS calling to say that yes, your package was supposed to have gone to Alexandria but we never pulled it off the truck so she just wanted to let me know that it was going back for delivery TO MY HOUSE AGAIN! ARG! Also, they were really sorry for the mistake. Well, I really appreciated the attention to detail and the phone call. So, I told her that if I don't manage to intercept the UPS guy and that package goes back to the shipping office, send it to Alexandria. I came home at lunch on a day when I put more code into production and we had network problems of all sorts to wait for the f-ing UPS man. I don't think he usually receives as excited a greeting as he did today when I opened the door and saw the brown uniform. So FINALLY, I have those beads for the amaryllis...which btw, is life size.

Finally, a happy ending.
You are making my mouth water! Amaryllis is one of my favourite flowers. Maybe I should bead another beaded flower again. An amaryllis? But I think I won't get that pattern, unfortunately. :-P Maybe you will write your own afterwards. Most likely, I would buy it!
