Squishy Mail Surprise...

A bright spot this week was the arrival in my mail box of a package that had travelled a looong way....
Stamps from Norway!...
Inside?..the most gorgeous Red Brolly girl wall hanging beautifully stitched by my lovely bloggy friend Grethe...isn't it divine...
Don't know that you can tell from the picture but the card is (oh bugger it's sideways! Kris tilt your head OK! Kris' son stop laughing at your mother!!!) so sweet, embossed with butterflies...

And then there is the back of the wallhanging...check out the label...
Canine themed! Perfect!!

Thank you so much Grethe I absolutely love it.  I have the perfect hanger in mind and it will hang in a special spot.

Off to Friday night gathering tonight, I missed going last time so it will be great to catch up...menu items are sorted - Blueberry Tart made for my contribution to tea menu and the ongoing hexie project my stitching menu for the evening.  I really really want to get those shapes stitched together so I can move on to attaching the borders because the thread I want to use to quilt it is winging it's way from across the sea.

Right back to whip stitching shapes...

Happy Stitching...
