Naughty me! A week ago I received a lovely parcel in the mail from Sue and I haven't yet shown you what was in this package. Sue was heading overseas and told me should would try to find me a thimble from Russia.  So, when the package arrived I was a bit puzzled as to why it was so big. Well, when I opened the parcel  this is what I discovered.

It is the cutest tin that looks just like a little suitcase with a leather handle and a gorgeous travel tag. Yep, Sue knows I also love tins. So, what was inside?
Not just one thimble but four! Don't you love the interior of this little tin?
Gotta love that Babushka ( must be the right spelling because spell check didn't underline it ). A sweet owl on another one ( Sue also knows I love owls...I do collect lots of things), The tankard thimble reminds me of a couple I bought in Carcassone and the other one in the box is so cute.
I do have so many awesome bloggy friends.
Since I finished the crocheted rug and tried to crochet my first hexie I found myself making all these.
Now I want to try a smaller crochet hook and see how the hexies turn out. Looks like I am "hooked"
Angel Blessings.
