When you are feeling poorly...

... there is nothing like a surprise package arriving on your doorstep to make you feel way better! And if there is one thing which could almost cure the common cold, then its a pressie from Dorthe!

I have always admired the fabric rolls which I have seen in blogland, but I have never actually held one in my hands. Until now. Dorthe created the most beautiful nature themed fabric roll for me, and I am completely in love with it. It is just so much fun slowly unrolling it and seeing more and more beautiful images and embellishments emerge. It is stunning, and words are really not needed, the photos say it all. Firstly though, I want to show you the beautiful card and the fabulous way Dorthe wrapped the fabric roll -

Incredibly beautiful details, right?

And now to the most delightful fabric roll -

Stunning inside and out -

Thank you, darling Dorthe, for my very precious gift, which almost cured the commong cold, lol. I feel heaps better now :-).

I hope you are all having a grand weekend,
