…which made me feel quite sad about the Royal Mail’s print-out-a-sticker approach. I’m sure it is much more efficient but it is also a lot less fun than making up the right amount out of assorted denomination stamps. Sigh. Anyway, I decided to enjoy the stamps for a bit rather than open it straight away, as I wanted to wait until Christmas was over and the house was our own again.
The contents were well worth waiting for. Look at this gorgeous hand-painted card.
Ela has added another little sprig of tansy on the back too.
In her message Ela says that she is interested in natural dyeing using local plants and wool from Pomorska sheep, which are native to her region.
Here’s a lock of dyed wool she included. I love how curly it is!
All around her message she has taped samples of handpsun and hand-dyed yarn.
It is such a beautiful collection, I am thrilled to receive something so lovely. And I am very glad that I waited to open it. For more lovely colours of yarn, do go and have a look at Elżbieta’s wool photos.
