I love posties bringing parcels

And today he came bearing two gifts .... one was my blog swap from Pam at Hortensia on Mel's Knitting/Crochet swap and the other my swap from the Shabby Chic Cafe from Fabrose. Let's not waste time on to the photos!!!

Beautifully wrapped in pink tissue with yellow ribbons .....

In my favourite colours of green and brown (how did you know that one Pam) .... a mug for my cuppa with it's own hand knit jacket to keep it from going cold to soon ..... a soft wrap for my neck for later in the year ...... a lovely notebook with handmade cover in tweed fabric with beautiful embroidered bouquet of flowers ..... a handy pin cushion (I needed another to keep by my sewing machine) and a hand crochet flower brooch. Thank you so much Pam everything is just fantastic and I am so pleased.

On to parcel number two ....

Fabrose did her homework and knew I had a yellow theme in my kitchen ..... all superbly hand made in lovely vintage fabrics ....... a peg bag ....... tea cosy with enormous teapot on the side and a pair of tea towels to match and finished with the vintage fabrics and lace. Big thanks again for a lovely swap .... just perfect!

I love doing these swaps ... it is very rewarding to give and receive and I flast is gabbered at the skill and generosity of the new bloggy friends I have made. I think now I just have Mrs Thrifty's Sleepover swap to complete this month and then I am taking a swap break because my new grandson is due in two weeks time and I must finish some projects started for him.

Take care everyone and keep blogging and swapping ...... thanks again to Pam and Fabrose xx
