I know it is the fear of everyone who spends most of their life buying online.. especially if you are an ecclectic stitching diva from tasmania , where sttiching LNS are like a needle in a very large haystack… but i had my visa details stolen and large purchases booked up and my savings got temporarily wiped out..
THATS why i have been quiet the last 10 days.. i have been somewhat miserable.. not good for someone with chronic depression and an anxiety disorder.
i picked it up on sunday when i got back from our camping trip as i check my banking detailsonline 3-4 times a week.. cos i am paranoid..
and it paid off.. whilst i was ringing the credit union on monday , they were ringing me.. as after the first transaction was approved by visa.. they went wild and tried to spend over $10 000 USD , which of course was denied as i do not have that sort of money..
my card got cancelled, the money was actually still there but being held in limbo waiting for the transaction to go through.. i had to rerarrange all our payments made on cards to pauls account and transfer over money to cover it all, , and because it was international fraud , it could not be quickly sorted.. the lovely lady at the My state credit union did a bit of lateral thinking and looked up the company the goods had been ordered through ( lovely expensive hand made jewellery site) and emailled them and told them to stop the order , she heard back from them today and they reckon the order was never made… so even more mysteriouser..
so my money was taken out of quarantine today … BUT apparently there could still be more out there, which have not appeared yet… and i am liable for them too .. until i make a fraud claim..
i do not understand it all.. i just know for over week all my money was gone and it might still go.. i mean i know it is covered by visa.. andi would get it back .. hopefully … but…
so i muddled along on Carley Cat, but decided not to share a pic this rotation.. you will have to wait a fortnight, thank goodness there are blocks of colour.. i could not stitch single stitches to save myself atm.. i am so not in the stitching groove..
then i knitted most of a lace fingerless glove in 2 ply silk/merino, but again no picture.. the camera is at school
BUT today i decided to break out my 40 ct blackforest linen from Lakeside linen and start Kaleidoscope flower ( sampler cove)..
i probably will not touch it again for months but i just HAD to see how vikki’s new Fugue blues looked on black.. it was an unanswered question that was eating away at me
what i did learn is i need the premium single strand silk for 1×2 on 40 ct as the coverage is a bit on the sparse side for my tastes , so nowi need to decide exactlywhat colour to sttich my other black linen ieces in and get some SSP silk
i have been searchingfor new hand dyed wool retailers no the wonderful Knittery is closing down ( se is moving to the states… pout)
i have found 2 so far i really like..
