Tulips & Ravens

Two more siggy blocks in the mail this week.

Tonny from The Netherlands sent this very pretty block with tulips. Such beautiful needlework!

Yesterday this block arrived from Lotte in Denmark. She said that ravens are her favorite bird, "partly because of their beauty and partly because of their role in the Nordic Mythology. There, the two ravens Hugin (thought) and Munin (memory) were sent out at dawn to gather information and return in the evening. Then they would perch of Odin's shoulders and whisper the news from all over the world."

Isn't that interesting? Thank you Tonny and Lotte for lovely blocks.
