The best post

Today has been a wet windy cold day........ just when I thought summer was on its way, however late this afternoon the most magnificent parcel arrived all the way from Norway.

Wonderful gifts from May Kristin

It came with chocolate outside the wrapping just to help customs out and the boys must not have had a craving for Norwegian chocolate because it arrived safely with my parcel.
Then inside was all this lovely fabric and a sweet little tin.

Inside the tin ......some trims and thread.

Some how in all my excitement I didn't photograph the little thumb pin cushion.
Thank you May Kristin you have made a very dull day a bright one for me. Now I have all those decisions what to make out of the fabric which stitchery to do first. Oh how sweet is life.
