The Prairie Schooler Exchange for Nic - The Prairie Schooler -vaihto




This exchange really made me nervous, as it travelled for about six weeks from Finland to United Kingdom - a journey that normally takes 3 days. But as the postal situation in UK has been far from normal lately, I was hoping it will turn up eventually. Nic finally received this some time ago and I am very relieved! It's a box cover and I must say I like it and I'm happy Nic likes it too :)

Have a wonderful weekend! This post is very short and boring, as this weekend is mainly dedicated to stitching, stitching and maybe some more stitching :)

Tämän vaihdon perillemenoa joutui jo vähän hermoilemaan, se matkusti Englantiin kuutisen viikkoa. Mutta koska tiesin, että postitilanne ei ole ihan normaali siellä, niin toivoin kovasti, että vaihto menisi jossain vaiheessa perille. Vihdoin viimein Nic paketin saikin ja tykkäsi siitä kuulemma. Tein laatikon kannen ja tykkään tuosta kyllä itsekin, harmittanut olisi jos olisi matkalle jäänyt :)

Ihanaa viikonloppua! Lyhyestä virsi kaunis, tylsä pieni kirjoitus tuli tästä, koska nyt hyppään pois koneelta. Tämän viikonlopun päätarkoitus nimittäin on pistellä, pistellä ja ehkä vielä vähän pistellä :)

What a beautiful piece Leena! But then your work is always exceptionally beautiful. I'm just catching up on your blog and I see lots of wonderful stitching that I've missed. But hmmm, I think we need an updated photo on Pipari. I'm sure she's grown a lot since the last photo!

I really LOVE it! It is wonderful! Actually, I like and love ALL your works, they are so beautiful, so neat and in such a good taste!
I apologize so much for not being continuous in leaving comments on your blog, that is full of wonderful things and is a real pleasure to visit daily. That is due only to a "chronic" lack of time in my life, but I want to let you know that your posts and your gorgeous needleworks give me joy and inspirations whenever I admire them. Thank you for sharing and for inspiring me so much.
Hugs from Italy,
Monica

Kaunis pistely! :)

Tessa said...

I bet you were so nervous when you heard about the postal situation but it all worked out ok - Nic even got it in time for Halloween in the end :)
It is lovely with your usual perfect finishing.
btw - your post was not boring at all, it is always nice to see what you have been stitching :)

A beautiful box top.

Irmeli said...

Onpas todella kaunis pistely. Kiva, että sait viimein tiedon perillemenosta. Keväällä lähettelin itse samaiselle henkilölle vaihdon ja sen kesti "mennä perille" lähes kolme kuukautta.Englanti taitaa sittenkin olla huisin kaukana:), kun postinkulku on noin hidasta.

Mari said...

Sinulle olisi syksyistä tunnustusta blogissani! :)

Carla said...

Beautiful box!! I'm glad it finally got to its destination :)

Heather said...

I always get nervous mailing anything, who know what'll happen to it? I am so glad if finally made it safely to Nic. It is a beautiful box! I like the leaves you added to it, very pretty.

Brigitte said...

I love love love it! Such a beautiful box. And I can easily understand how worried you were about it when it didn't arrive in time.

Ulla said...

Ihana malli ja hienosti viimeistelty!
