norwegian goodies

Cecilie from Norway sent me the most incredible package. I had never before received a package from Norway, but I think this was definitely worth the wait!

That last photo shows a little eggplant kit of green and purple beads, embroidery thread, and felt. Cecilie also sent some little tiny eggplant heat transfers. As you might imagine, the candy selection is amazing. So far I’ve tried only the kit kat-like candy. Mmmm. The gummis she sent are in the shapes of ladies and skiiers! Only in Norway. I’m not sure what to do with that great piece of fabric. Maybe a wall hanging or a tote? Danke! Merci! Arigato! How do I say THANK YOU in Norwegian!?!
In other news, I finished a dress a couple days ago, but it’s been too cloudy or too cold to photograph it. Maybe tomorrow …

    I made a tote from that fabric last year, and I just love it and I get complimented on it all the time. I took some pics but your email address doesn’t work, according to yahoo. If you’re interested, let me know.
    Happy crafting!
