My postman has just called and with him he brought a parcel from Sarah at pink-petal-designs. We had arranged a swap last month and both posted out on Tuesday.
Well I grabbed my camera and opened the parcel.
I was completely overawed at what was inside. Thank you so much Sarah, you are way too generous and kind. Here are the goodies before I ripped off the tissue paper.
Inside there was....a cheque book cover, a notebook and one of Sarah's lovely crochet brooches.
Then there was a knitting needle case and some knitting needles to go in it and a sweet little needle and pin case .
Then, yes more, there was this lovely library tote bag which I know my eldest daughter will be trying to steel as she is mad about strawberries.
Ant then, yes more still, there was a ball of Rowan cotton braid, a reel of cotton, the most beautiful buttons I've ever seen and...........a key fob and card.
Thank you so much for such a generous swap. I love it all and will no doubt lay it all out several times today and just stand back to admire your work. Thank you.
What a wonderful way to make new friends.
