Oh how i love a swap! If anyone knows of any currently taking place in bogland, please let me know! I have masses of free time at the moment...
Today I received my parcel from Melanie of "The Patchwork Robin" blog. It only took 4 day for it to arrive from England!
What a delightful package! The swap had to contain something made, something to eat, a tea towel and a kitchen item.
Melanie is such an amazing sewer and has made this gorgeous oven mitt - I love rick rack and the fabric! I really would love to be ale to sew to this standard!
The cow corn holders are brilliant - I have never seen anything like these in NZ and they will be used a lot!
I am mad on tea towels (linen full stop really and regularly buy new duvet covers and sheets and the odd tea towel ), and this is so sweet too.
And chocolate - still working on getting my chocolate taste buds back, but it will come! I will try these day after day after day!
It has been wonderful getting to know Melanie and to have another blog to read. Thanks for being such a lovely swapper. Melanie should have received my package too by now.
I can remember taking photos of what I sent her but seem to have misplaced the memory stick with these pics on - if I cannot find it, I will wait until Melanie blogs about what I sent her and borrow the photos she takes :)
And stationery love from one of my oldest penfriends today - Rachael and I have been writing to each other since 1986!!! We have met each other numerous times. (she lives in Australia.)
I have had lots of lovely real letters lately.
