Olya has let me know that her surprise package arrived safely so I can show you what I sent.
The inspiration for this package was two fold - first New Zealanders are often called Kiwis and I had collected several Kiwi bits and pieces to send; kiwi fabric, a kiwi pot holder, a kiwi towel, a kiwi memo pad, a NZ wood bookmark, NZ paua shell buttons, postcards of NZ flora and fauna and of course NZ made chocolate! And because Olya is an embroiderer par excellence I included some thread and fabric.
- second I found the pattern called Olya in this book and of course I had to stitch it for my friend Olya didn't I!! You can read more details here
. Thankfully she liked the package and hopefully she enjoyed the NZ made tangerine chocolate too. You should go check out Olya's blog
- she has a great design for a Butterfly Biscornu (and for those who are afraid Google Translate helps out big time with the language problem).
