Hello my friends.
Yesterday my `Friends Swap` arrived in the post for me from Annik.
Annik had wrapped each one in fabric.
An extra special gift.
Showing my gifts before I unwrapped them.
The stamps from Norway interested us .
F: Flower vase from Venice. I will put some dried or silk flowers in this even though it looks like it could hold water.
R: A hand woven mug rug made by Annik. This must have taken some time to make.
I: Inches. A Rachel Cross 4" square grid.
E: Silk threads which I haven`t seen wound like this before and an embroidery kit.
Looking forward to stitching with the silks with this design.
N: John James size 10 needles
and a quilting pin from the quilting group Annik belongs to.
D: Dark chocolate. The flavours are:
apple,ginger and lemon,
So pleased that they where written in English on the back.
The family at home have been eating and enjoying this.
S: Small sewing gear.
A 2 1/2" candies `Lario` by 3 sisters and a packet of paper piecing clamshells.
I`ve been wanting to try Sue Daleys way of using this shape.
These are the fabrics they where wrapped in.
I have shown them with each gift.
The fabrics are Lynette Andersons `Hollyhock Cottage range.
I have been blessed. Thank you Annik for being my swap partner.
I hope the airmailed package I sent you is not too far away.
Thank you Khristina for a lovely `Friends Swap`.
