Norsk Blogging Venn

Nearly two years ago when I started blogging I thought to myself, 
"Wouldn't it be nice to "meet" some friends with common interests...like crocheting and baking and domesticating and maybe even Norway."
 Well, to my joy and delight this very thing happened and miraculously more than once.

Wonderful, wonderful women from all over the world (The USA, India, France, Turkey, Norway, Australia,  Africa, The Netherlands, the UK...the list goes on and on) who have kindly and thoughtfully taken an interest in my interests and vice verse. 
Unforgettable friendships made via the "World Wide Web".

You are all so special and I feel so fortunate to be in your company.

I felt an instant connection with one such friend from my home country over at the Drudeblaa blog.
This post is written in blue in celebration of and dedication to Drude. :-)
She loves blue!

To my surprise, this package, from Drude of Norway, 
was sitting upon my doorstop upon arriving home after a long work week. 
A book that is just my style and a lovely hand written note on this bird card.
What a welcoming treat!!!
 My heart swells with gratitude with the words, thoughts and gifts of a friend from afar.
You'd think I could write this in Norwegian, but I am just a bit lazy....I'll try one line:
Mange tusen takk Drude, 
jeg har det koselig med denne bok!

    1. Oh my goodness, and EAL sounds very tempting. Stitching is right behind crocheting for me...but far from knitting and sewing with a machine. I must have something mobile that does not entail a lot of counting. :-) Thank you for your friendship, Sue.
