SWAP PACKAGE ARRIVED
I had a pleasant surprise yesterday when the postman arrived. My swap package of Christmas pieces from the swap with Jillayne of A fine seam arrived. What a wonderful package she made of it. For each one of us she made a beautiful bag decorated with a flower and piece of jewellery to put our swap pieces into. the bag itself is a wonderful gift to keep and she also included a sweet little heart she made and a lovely card.
The 5 pieces inside are all very lovely and very different. they could be fabric, paper, whatever the artist wanted to make. I received a lovely selection and am thinking of how I will display them. When I made mine with the lace covered fabric and the Christmas angel I also made one for me to keep myself. Now if I could find where I put it I would be happy. I should never put anything away.
2 of the 5 were not signed so I cannot say thank you to them but the other 3 were so I will drop them a note of thanks. If you read my blog and one of the unsigned ones is yours, please leave a comment so I can thank you.
Between this and the matchbox swap I am getting into the Christmas mood early. I rarely make Christmas gifts these days so these swaps are fun.
