Still speechless....

For one and a half week ago I received a little slip from the customs that I had a package from USA and that they wanted me to pay a customs fee for it...
Hmmm...
What on earth was this... I definetly hadn´t ordered anything...
And I cant pay a fee not knowing who its from...
So I made some research... :)
And Yes... I did know that person who sent the package...
a very sweet and fantastic quilter from Florida... :d

But why at customs... dangerous goods maybe... nah...not from this person...
It was too high value... for a gift... we are allowed to receive gifts for 500 Swedish kr... and have to pay a fee for the amount over that...
So I decided to explain THAT THIS WAS A GIFT...and please be nice... :y
...and it took its time... I have waited ...and waited...
Mailed to this wonderful person ...so she would know it was in Sweden ...but not at my place!!!
Just lying at the post office without no one to take care of it... in the dark... ;)
Can you belive me when I say ...that this have been driving me crazy...
And to make it even worse...this person said to me....
THINK BLUE!!!
Can you feel it...my frustration... :#
And so one day ...
...I could pick up the package ...without fee... so thanks for that..
Ahhh... and it was a big package... :)
...very well packed... a lot of plastic bags in there... had to check them all...if it was something hiding in them...but nothing there...
...and so I got to the bottom... and there...something... a card...
from Karen ( Log Cabin Quilter)...
What on earth have she done now?????
oh my gosh...my hands were shaky ...and started to cry even before I saw what it was...
from the bottom of the package I lifted up this bundle...
...I told you I was and still are speechless!!!!
This is what it was in the package...
and I can tell you I would have payed whatever fee for this beauty!!!
"Blue Jug Summer"

Karen.... I´m so overwhelmed by this gift from you ...think I have to sit just to talk about it...
A lot of tears have fallen ...happy ones ... of course!!
And if you were closer I had come right over to give you a BIG HUG!!!
Thankyou ...Thankyou!!! :L
for my fantstic blue surprise....
It is up on the wall in my livingroom...
and I who have longed for flowers...
now I can see some everyday!! :)
Perfect!!!
