FibreShare June 2018

Last Fall I joined the FibreShare for the first time - and you might remember my post back in January about my experiences. Well, after much consideration - and seeing all the pictures from 2018's first round - I decided to join again.

I sent my parcel off to Idaho, wrapping each item separately (based on the contents) and with a little note explaining what it was (or giving hints). One big parcel is alway fun - several small ones are more fun?

In my parcel I included Norwegian yarn, chocolate, coffee and tea, stitchmarkers and a row counter, a sticker, two mini charm packs and two pieces of Tilda fabric (Tilda being a norwegian designer of both fabric and patterns). The recipient was also a quilter, so I just had to include some fabric. I also included a box of Stupedama saltpastiller, which is a personal favorite of mine.

The parcel arrived safely to Anne in Idaho - and I am very happy to report that she loved everything - even the Stupedama!

I had to wait for the postal services to do "their thing" for a while before finally receiving a note stating that there was a parcel waiting for me at the post office. And Laura from Wisconsin truly spoiled me!

Look! Each item is wrapped in fabric! (Laura is also a quilter - what's the chance of that?)

The picture doesn't show the colours as they really are - the colours are wonderful! The little football player was a gift for P - and he loved it too. And there's a box of stitchmarkers, chocholate (yummy....), a soap (which makes everything smell like candy) and a fridge magnet with a map of Wisconsin.

Laura made this gorgeous card herself - don't you just love the poppys?

She even included a little gift for A - a cute cow (because Wisconsin is the dairy state). A loved it so much it got to sleep in her bed.

And look! It even has her name on it! Coincidence?

Here's another picture of P's football player. He loves LEGOs, so this was really right up his alley!


Thank you Anne, Laura and the FibreShare team!
