Be prepared for another dose of moomin goodies!


I'll get straight to the point so here are the photo's:


Sylvanna sent me all kinds of great moomin stuff!
And did she go moomin all the way, she even had wrote a short letter to me on moomin stationary!

There's a moomin bag of which I took a detail shot of the embroidery


My favorite moomin character is little My and Sylvanna captured her image (AND her attitude) in this great hoopla!

It's my first hoopla ever! I think this will go above my desk in my craftspace.

She also made these great Thingummy and Bob coasters.

They're the weirdest/funniest moomin characters in my opinion  Grin  They're not going to be used as coasters though, my boyfriend confiscated them allready. He reckons there way to good to be put underneath something. I think he wants to hang them on the kitchen wall.

 There were two moomin cards, a keychain/bagcharm with (shrinkydink?) moomins (I'm sure I too a detail photograph, no Idea where it went though Sad  ) and a moomin paperclip too.

The moomin greatness continues as I received from Sylvanna today. Or actually this evening, which means I am not able to take photographs now. So for now I'll keep you all guessing at the awesomeness and I'll go and admire my stuff......... That is if I can get the boyfriend to give me back two items....... :/

No need for anxiety yet!  It took butweeds package five days (I think) , so unless you want the package to beat a record its not really overdue yet!

Hi all! Sorry you haven't heard from me fro a while! I was on holiday in moominland (ok Finland) and I didn't have space in my luggage to take the laptop along, so I had a week of no internet. Great weather though for skiing. Didn't see any moomins though, but I suppose they are asleep still.
 
@ butweed: I'm glad you like your package! I had fun making it, although I did have a little struggle with the apron! It turned out to be far more work than I thought, see reason below.

I love the gloves - so cute!! And the Moominmamma apron was an idea that had crossed my mind, unfortunately there is no red and white striped fabric to be found in town.

I couldn't find any fabric with red and white stripes either. (not big stripes anyway) So I ended up sewing the stripes too, which is no fun if you don't have a serger. I'm glad my sewingmachine did have some serger like stitches so I  didn't have to go over each seam twice. I'm pleased how it turned out though, and as the recipient liked it, it was truly worth the time!

Oh, those amigurumis are really cute! I really like the detail and care that goes in all the pieces I've seen here now! I saw a lot of moomin merchandise last week, but I thought most of it was terribly overpriced as the quality was terrible. I didn't by any moomin things because of it.

Poor you! Hope you get well soon! a little aquavit should kill all the germs i think, although it probably wont be the first thing you feel like right now. (my uncle lives in sweden and he swears by aquavit, he thinks it's the sole thing keeping him alive)

My boyfriend is on his way to the post office right now. I had to send to day as I wont be able to next week.

Normally I'm not able to by moomin sweets locally either. But we've got a Finnish church in Rotterdam (there are churces in Antwerp and London also) and I'm momentarily living in the centre of the city. It's a church and a community house as well. They sell Finnish foods and stuff at a very,very,very high price though,but sometimes you just can't resist. Grin

WOW! A moomin dining set! I especially like the knife and fork, what are thay made of? They look very design/ expensive. (BUT handmade makes them even better!)
I must revise my package to butweed though... as I was going to pick up them moomin sweets from the Finnish church. Not really original....... Undecided
