I have a little problem I’d like to put before you.
I don’t want to blow it out of proportion, because at the end of the day, it’s just not that big of a deal, but I’d really like to know what you would do in my situation
I’m in several bees – and most of them chug along pretty happily. Occasionally life gets in the way and for one reason or another things get delayed. People mail and let you know what’s going on and eventually all the blocks turn up and Bob’s your uncle.
But it doesn’t always work like that and that’s right where I am now.
I’m in a bee – I won’t tell you which one because the last thing I want to do is embarrass anyone…let’s just leave it that I’m in a bee. My month was September and we have 2 months to complete the blocks, so by the end of October my blocks should have arrived. I sent my fabric and instructions out in August and to date I have received three lots of blocks back (out of 11). The flickr page photos show that nobody else has made any blocks and some have already moved on to the month after mine.
Last week I wrote to the Queen Bee, but haven’t heard back from her. I also posted an update post on Flicr, just to ask people how things are standing. I have had replies from 4 and rather worryingly it seemed like some of them had forgotten my project.
That leaves 4 not made, but at least communicating and another 4 with no response at all.
What would you do? I mean it’s kind of embarrassing to keep hassling people, but it would be nice to see this work out. Would you just leave it and see what comes out in the wash? What is the correct etiquette in this situation? I feel like I’ve done a nice, non-pushy reminder and I don’t want to p people off, if you know what I mean.
I’m sure I’m not along in experiencing this – so do let me know what you think!
Have a lovely Sunday,
