I got home to find TWO! parcels waiting for me:-)
So I quickly tore into them...
Everything all nicely wrapped up - I@m getting very excited at this stage!
And despite having nothing to do with the swap, my loving BF decides he needs to eat all the sweets and get involved!
I've never tried quilling before so this will be exciting!
This was on my list and is a limited edition. I have two bowls for breakfast the next morning. I love it so much!
KoolAid sachets - these were on my list too. I found another sachet lurking in something after I took this photo. I'm going to try dying with some of these I think (and some I'll drink, of course!)
DR PEPPER LIP BALM!!!
I was so excited by this! I had some of this when I was about 16 and I lost it and was so gutted. Now, SevsOnlyGirl didn't know this but she got me some anyway! I squealed with joy when I saw this. Thank you!!! She also sent me two lip blams which she' made herself and some bits and pieces from the college where she works. Wonderful!
SevsOnlyGirl also made me this beautiful crocheted shawl (and it matches the colour of my duffle coat perfectly!)
and a gorgeous piece of embroidery based on traditional Amish pattern.
I spent a month in Pennsylvania as part of a cross community programme when i was 15. I loved it there and so this reminds me of that lovely time. I think I will either frame it or make it the focal point of a new quilt or wall hanging. It's absolutely beautiful - thank you!
The other crafted item is a lovely teacup pin cushion.
Isn't it gorgeous? And so useful!
I also received some lovely magazines
(there's a great trifle recipe in one of them), some items for making jewelry , a microfibre cloth and loads and loads of sweets and snacks
I'm totally addicted to the peanut butter pretzel sandwiches
They are divine!
Also in the box was this lovely cruet set
and some handy items - I could've done with this tide-to-go on my holiday recently!
I tipped coffee all down my white tshirt on the first plane journey so had to spend the next 24 hours and 2 subsequent flights feeling slightly ashamed of myself and trying to cover it up. I am such a klutz!
And everything all together (without the Cap'n Crunch - I left that out by mistake!)
Thank you SevsOnlyGirls! I've been so lucky to have you as a partner and I absolutely love everything!
