A surprise and a treasure :-)

P1040284Yesterday my DBIL called and said he had spools for me.
He is helping a friend cleaning out his house, and the friend has had an auction business for years - now he is in a care facility.
59 different colours - some a dozen spools, some only 1 or 2, most colours, something in between - all in all a big happy surprise :-)

P1040289

The mailman brought the treasure today - Anni Downs' last book + wonderful fabrics, all bought from Quiltegården :-)
Thanks Siw - your service is so good!
The book is great - I want to make every single thing in this book - does not happen often :-)

Hanne You have a wonderful BIL to bring you such a great surprise. Those threads will give you many happy hours of stitching.

For en gave - det er jo virkelig en skatt!! Og boka til Anni Downs har funnet veien til meg også, mange flotte prosjekter der, men skal prøve å holde meg fra å starte på noen av dem enda. Koser meg med å bla i boka så lenge.

Så fantastisk å motta en slik "opprydningsgave". Nyt den i mange mange sytimer framover :-) God bedring.
