I love to enter contests and give aways and do so freqently but seldom win. This time I really got lucky! Look what I won from Fio d'art in Portugal!
They were in a handmade package with cute red and white polkadotted fabric. She sent a cute card with a sweet little note. It was so fun to recieve and such a surprise to get so many nice treats along with the prize!
I have been busy getting a couple of packages ready to send and they are in the mail! The first is a local swap in Norway with Merete, a Norwegian blogger who inspires me with her use of color and pattern in her beautiful quilts. She is getting some kimono silk and I look forward to seeing what she will surprise me with in return!
The other package is going all the way to Japan! I thought I would give a sneak peek at what I am sending to Jan. Do check out all of the cute fabric fish she has made! What fun to get to know Jan who is of Norwegian ancestry but has never been to Norway! I am sending her some crafting treasures and surprises from Norway! Here are a few of them.
Jan and I both love embroidery. So she is going to get some vintage embroidery pieces from me; a handkercheif, a couple of small table centerpieces, a small tablecloth, and a wall hanging. A few of them were very hard to part with...
This is kind of a surprise. I hope she likes it!
Jan loves pewter/silver buttons so she'll be getting these.
Then there is the fabric! Cottons galore. Every one of them vintage or newer Norwegian cotton!
What will Jan make? I love seeing her quilts done with the beautiful Japanese cottons.
I wonder what she will think of the Scandinavian designs?
Blogging is so much fun! I had no idea I would meet so many wonderful people.
