You may remember me mentioning that I had signed up to take part in my first blog swap. The theme was 'cosy autumn' and we could send a minimum of five items, two of which had to be hand made. Here is what I received from my swapper - the cookie jar- who is from Ireland. It came in this lovely sturdy storage box (this was something I hadn't though of doing, but will do if I take part in any more swaps).
A treasure trove of purple packages.
Or should that be a mountain of purple packages! My swapper had been extremely generous.
Here are all the lovely goodies.
A gorgeous scarf (in my favourite colours) and a pair of long length fingerless gloves/mittens which will get a lot of use because I have extremely cold hands.
Hot chocolate and some fair trade chocolate with marshmallows and pieces of honeycomb in it - Chris has already decided we are sharing that!
A cat and knitting wool mug, some beautifully scented soap and a scented candle.
An embroidered notebook, a cake/biscuit recipe book and a copy of 'Dubliners' by James Joyce.
Finally, two sets of tulip bulbs and a card.
Wow! What an amazing swap this was. Chris remarked that it felt like Christmas. I am very lucky, absolutely delighted and am hugely grateful to my swapper. Thank you so much! So, what did I send, you are asking? That will follow in my next post...
