A parcel arrives in Norway!

Had a wonderful email from Oddbjorg to let me know that her Friends swap parcel has arrived in Norway. I was starting to stress a little but there you go, nothing to worry about was there?
Now I can also show what I made.... I haven't got photos of everything somehow they have ended up with the missing socks that disappear in the washing machine!
The things I sent were
F   felted pincushion
R  redwork stitchery
I   Inspirational fabrics
E  Australian hand dyed embroidery threads
N Needlecase
D dark chocolate
S  Scarf made from beautiful Australian wool/ scissor case.

Here is the needle case and scissor holder
 Redwork stitchery (Oddbjorg collects bears and she can make this up into something she likes)
 Felted pincushion. (can you see where that mini hexie flower ended up?)
 A needlecase. This and the pincushion are patterns by Kaaren, I am happy with how they turned out.)
Hope you all have a happy Tuesday, I know I will now...

What beautiful gifts, Oddbjorg must be jumping up and down with joy. You really are a beautiful stitcher. So glad they did not get lost in the mail, what a loss that would have been.

Beautiful gifts to be sure - Love that bear so cute. Have to go by and see where Oddjorg uses it.

Pretty pincushion and needlecase.
