LHN exchange stunner

Wow. I was stunned when I opened a package from the parcel man just now. Here's my LHN exchange from Nela, who has made me this beautiful, beautiful box. She writes that she has chosen red as my favourite colour and it really couldn't be more me.


I love the design and the colours - the box and fabric colour match our living room perfectly. And it is all so pretty with beads and ribbon - just beautifully done.




And it was stuffed with red goodies! A gorgeous scissor fob, and lovely thread keeper, and thread winders and thread and beads and pins and ribbon. Just packed with beautiful things!




I love it! It's going next to my seat in the living room so I can fill it with things to keep close at hand. The fact that it's come all the way from Venezuela makes it so special. My first piece of South American stitching. It's so lovely to look at all my exchanges and remember who they came from and where in the world they are from! Thank you, thank you Nela!

  8. uhhhhh que alivio.... jajajaj todos los dias venia a visitar tu blog.... y nada... hoy ayyyy que alivioooo... llego.... La verdad deseaba enviar mas cosas, pero si hacia eso pesaria mucho y no podia usar el correo de envio privado, asi que tube que limitarme a solo la caja... pero se que te gustan el cafe y los chocolates y eso no podia enviarlo por alli.. si no por el correo normal... y ese correo normal tardaria mas de 20 dias... asi que decidi rapido y seguro....Ademas me costo investigar tus gustos,,, entre los cuales tienes los hilos dmc descontinuados.... por mas que los busque no los consegui ni en venezuela ni en Bogota...
    Espero sea de todo tu agrado...
    si entiendes español podras ahora ver como lo realise en mi blog mañana...
    besos
