I've Got Happy Feet!

A little more than a week ago this lovely parcel arrived from Helsinki, Finland. My sister-in-law Lili has knit me the most gorgeous pair of socks (unfortunately, I don't think my photos do the yarn justice) and they are the perfect fit.

Aren't they beautiful?
Equally fun was the wrapping which is is based on one of Marimekko's fabulous prints. Marimekko is a Finnish textile and clothing design company renowned for its original prints and colours. The company designs and manufactures high-quality clothing, interior decoration textiles, bags and other accessories and they obviously have some staunch supporters within their postal system. Isn't it amazing? What a great way to promote local producers, generate awareness and national pride.

Wouldn't this be a beautiful backing for a summer quilt? Thanks so much Lili, for both the beautiful gift and the nice bright wrapping!...M
