Cross-country skiing near Dobbiaco, Italy (December 2013)
Wow - I can't believe that it's Christmas Eve already! December has really flown by. I hope that you all have a fantastic holiday! I'm really looking forward to taking some time off: my batteries could definitely do with a bit of recharging! I thought I'd better let you know about when I will and won't be despatching orders over the next few weeks. No orders will be despatched on the following days:
Friday, 25 December
Monday, 28 December
Friday, 1 January
Tuesday, 5 January to Monday, 11 January (inclusive)
You'll see that the main period I'll be away is in early-January, when my husband and I are going on holiday. We're going the Dolomites in northern Italy to go cross-country skiing! It's virtually the same vacation that we took two years ago (ok... it's exactly the same vacation: same hotel and even the same room - we loved it *that* much!). I'm really looking forward to getting some exercise and eating lots of strudel (the two activities will hopefully balance each other out)!
As The Splendid Stitch is currently a one-woman show, this means that no orders will be despatched while I'm away. If you'd like your order to be despatched before I leave, please place it by noon on Monday, 4 January. Orders placed after that will be despatched on Tuesday, 12 January and Wednesday, 13 January.
As for what's going on at The Splendid Stitch between now and when I leave on the 5th, I'm excited to announce that there will be a big end-of-the-year sale, starting on Sunday, 27 December and running until Sunday, 3 January - yay! Details will be announced via our newsletter and on Facebook.
Now, to finish wrapping presents and writing out Christmas cards... :-)
