MAIL CALL - HUNGARY
Looky what I got in the mail yesterday!!
Edit - one of my readers from Hungary - sent me this in return for some jelly rolls and charm packs that I sent her.
She blogged about it – here -
Such pretty stuff –
Here’s s detail photo of the embroidery –
I think this one is called “Matyo” –
It is sometimes done on black fabric –
The stitching is really dense on those flowers –
Here’s a detail photo of one of the other ones –
This one is what they call “Kalocsa Richelieu” –
It’s a cutwork lace art embroidery from Kalocsa –
On the Danube in Southern Hungary –
Aren’t they BEAUTIFUL?
I just LOVE them –
They are AUTHENTIC HUNGARIAN PATTERNS –
In TRADITIONAL HUNGARIAN COLORS –
And then there’s the PAPRIKA – 200g of it –
(That's about 7 ounces - I think) -
And - that there is the GOOD stuff!!
She even included a little “Thank You” plaque with her name on it –
"Woodburning" appears to be another one of her talents –
Check out her blog – she does some really nice work -
THANK YOU, EDIT!!

The peppers can do a little each dish. Meats, soups, stews.
