Mail from Maastricht

Are others having problems uploading images. I have been trying for days to show you the lovely squares Annemarie stitched for me in Round 2 but Blogger refuses. Yes you are reading correctly - Round 2. Annemarie and I mailed our squares on the same day hoping they would also arrive on the same day, but I guess the US mail thought these were just too pretty and considered keeping them. Finally last Thursday someone decided to be kind and Annemarie's package was in our mailbox.

The squares are absolutely perfect from one Dutch person to another. The front is a Delft Blue tile of a tulip - what could be more Dutch? On the back Annemarie stitched not only her name, city and the year but decorated the corners with a pretty design of her own. Along with the squares she sent me one of her now famous floss rings with Wildflowers 'Firecracker' floss (red/white/blue - the colors of the Dutch flag) and the cutest card with a hilarious poem by Hans Kuyper. DH got quite a chuckle out of that too.

Thank you so much Annemarie. I thoroughly enjoyed stiching this exchange with you and know I have made a new friend. Someday we will meet in person and I am looking forward to that day.

I will keep on trying to post a picture in the coming days.

Hooray, I'm so glad they've arrived! If you can't upload the pictures, would you like me to do it?

Yes please Annemarie. I just tried again but blogger refuses.
