Swap received......

The postal Gods smiled favourable yesterday and Peta's parcel arrived at her house too! You couldn't plan it to happen that way, could you.
These are the goodies that I sent to Peta. She was as happy with her parcel as I was with mine.

F festive hanging
R rotary cutter holder, rose cards
I inspirational words
E embroidery threads (not in picture)
N notebook, nourishment
D doilie, decorative pin cushion
S stitchery holder, scissor fob
some vintage buttons came in handy

the pattern for the stitchery keeper came as an extra pattern with the Down in the Garden bom. It's a lovely design and lovely to stitch.


I definitely need to make myself a rotary cutter keeper and one of those stitchery keepers.......
Happy swapping!

Those are lovely Marina... isn't it so that we make useful things like rotary cutters and stitchery keepers for others and not ourselves... like machine covers and thread catchers... and ... and... I love your stitcheries.... the keeper looks similar to the Vignette ones I have seen???

All the gifts look lovely, the stitchery keep is gorgeous and I love the Christmas wall hanging. The gifts you got in the previous post are beautiful too!

Lots of pretties you sent - Lucky Peta.
Really like your stitch keeper - very pretty buttons.
Enjoy your break.

Ooops I have missed a few posts. Took a little break and see how much I have missed.
The Friends swap is fun and both sets of gifts are beautifully made and very thoughtful. I would ask one question Time out = nourishment?
Enjoy the rest of the holidays.
