Look what I've got- Swap goodies!!!

Everything looked so pretty when I opened the blinds this morning. It must have snowed most of the early hours as there was quite a covering. I got up and checked the weather report and it wasn't good.

But I still made the normally short drive to work-which took me 50 minutes. I was amazed at how bad the roads were which made me think about the news reader saying that the local councils were running out of salt to grit the roads, Oh how underprepared us Brits are :)

Tuesday my parcel arrived from Kitty who was my designated swap partner for 'I'm a ginger monkey fat quarter swap'. I was so excited when I heard I was paired with Kitty, I love to read her was one of the first blogs I discovered when I first joined blogland.

Just managed to contain myself in time to grab my camera!!!

Look at this gorgeous packaging, I love raffia and the post card is one of Kitty's....gorgeous. I couldn't wait to see what was inside.

**Squealing** Look what was inside!!!!!!!!! My fat quarters, some gorgeous valentined themed ribbons and this adorable flower brooch.

And these are my gorgeous, bright, funky, yummy fabric quarters. Just in case, anyone who also took part in the swap were wondering, me and Kitty agreed that we would swap 4 quarters rather than the 2. I had lots to choose from ;) but managed to whittle it down to 4 to send.

Also in the package was a little flower brooch that Kitty had made......its beautiful I'm going to put it on my black wool coat. Thank you sooooo much for my swap package Kitty you were a fantastic swap partner. If you haven't read Kitty's blog you are really missing out!! Get on over there and check it out.
HELP NEEDED: Anyone got any suggestions of what I can get for my Step Dad for his 50th Birthday??? Totally stuck as to what to get him.


  1. Great swaps!! I should start posting my swaps!

  2. What a fab parcel, that brooch is so cute! I'm getting really excited about receiving my parcel now - hope it arrives soon!

  3. Hi Emma - I'm so pleased you liked your swap parcel. I loved mine! I could 'see' those fabrics as your little pouches or as parts of bags - hope they sew up well.

    You should maybe warn those clicking over to my blog that they shouldn't go there if easily shocked - there are big boobies there at the moment! :-O

    Thank you for my lovely parcel - will be blogging it soon.


  4. wow what a great parcel you lucky girl!

    It's fun getting packages in the mail. I have new fabric coming in a few days so I keep waiting and watching for the mailman.

    Enjoy your swap.
