Lookee what I got!

On my way home (riding on the bus) after looking after my Mom for a couple of weeks, my DH and I were talking on the cell phone and he informed me there was a package from Norway and should he open it for me!

I have been expecting a parcel from Gudrun (we have exchanged gifts again), so the parcel from Norway was a total surprise.

May Kristin was my partner for the 4 Seasons Winter swap. In her note, she mentioned that she designed my quilt and she hoped that the quilt met all my likes ….. blues, 9 patch, country feel and cosy.

What do you think? She certainly met them and more!!! Along with the quilt, she even provided me with a hanger. Sure beats my sticks that I’ve been using. :o)

Also, in the parcel was chocolate (notice that ‘was’ is past tense). LOL …. there are still some left ….. for now …… There is a CD on Norway that was quite enjoyable and very informative and a key chain (with a Viking ship engraved into the clear Lucite).

So, I am a happy girl doing the happy dance!

Have a great day!

She certainly has you figured out, your swap quilt is perfect for you and very beautiful! Such a thoughtful quilter this lady in Norway is.

My DH enjoyed opening and sharing packages for me while I was away...he loves the quilty things and the fact that quilters send me such lovely things. He is always happy for the joy that quilters and quilting brings to my life. Isn't that the dearest thing?

Welcome home from your "mom sitting" time. So nice that you can both care for you mom.

I'm ready for another trip already! LOL, doubt my DH will go for that right now.

Glad you are back home.

What a beautiful little quilted piece! Nice hanger too! I've not heard that saying before, but do like it - and you even displayed it with snow in the background. You, and your friends, are so creative!

Such a pretty quilt- and that chocolate is very addictive- my favorite! And how sweet of her to enclose a dvd about Norway.
