Syttende Mai 2012

Happy Constitution Day Norway!
How lucky can you be when your mother lives in Norway and her very good friend
 in the USA sends this delightful cross stitched gift the day before 
the Syttende Mai (The Seventeenth of May)...
...and included this sweet note?
Liv is also the lovely lady that gave me the brød oppvarming klut (bread warming cloth)
 that I turned into the pillow from this post:
Thank you, Liv!

Happy Syttende Mai!!!


  1. It's beautiful! Syttende Mai is a big deal here in Wisconsin, thanks to our large Norwegian population. There are lutefisk suppers and other activities all around the state to celebrate it.

    Happy Syttende Mai to you too.

    1. I should be in Wisconsin - not too much celebrating around here. A little party in the park on Saturday and that should be fun. :-)

  2. les ouvrges au point de croix sont toujours des ravissements, j'aime beaucoup. L'ensemble est magnifique et c'est un souvenir très sympathique. Bon jeudi de l'Ascension !!!

    1. I love your French comments Domy - the warmth and kindness never gets lost in translation but sometimes the translator comes up with some funny translations. :-)

  3. Liv is so sweet and thoughtful to send you these pretty embroidered pieces that she knows you will love and use. Happy Syttende Mai.

    I don't know how I missed your past couple of posts. Congrats to your daughter on her graduation. I'm sure you had a wonderful trip.

    Has the NVO gotten used to that gorgeous blanket you are crocheting for the man cave? :)

    Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

    1. Nice to hear from you Tammy. The trip was wonderful and thanks for the congrats! She is very happy to be done. The blanket was too big to travel and now too big to take to the gym so I work on it a little each night. Stay tuned for an update. :-)

  4. What a lovely gift :-)
