Sewing ain't for sissies

I met a friend from Sweden a couple of months ago.  It was so lovely to see her again. 

She brought me a gift - I was so touched by it.  She had seen it in Sweden, thought of me and bought it, wrapped it up in beautiful butterfly paper and brought it in her luggage all the way over to England.

It was a wonderful metal sewing tin which contained a large pair of scissors, retractable tape measure and seam unpicker (which I was told I probably wouldn't need, but let's be honest, it's probably one of the most used items in my sewing kit!)

I just adore the sentiment on the lid :)

Thanks, K!
