I meant to do this post last night but somehow managed to get side-tracked elsewhere in cyberland.
A fair few weeks ago I signed up for Lakota's Jubilee Swap - I was paired with the lovely Miss_b from Retro Lovely and we happily stalked each others blogs and exchanged emails. We decided due to other commitments that we were in no real rush to exchange but as and when we were both ready.
Anyhow last week parcels were posted to each other and a minor miracle both arrived safely within days of each other.
Mine turned up on one of those horrid grey & damp days we've had rather too many of recently - it certainly helped cheer me up;
Homemade cookies, a gorgeous pink rose china triplet set, a fan (handy when it actually gets warm) and a CD full of some rock-n-roll - I had this playing yesterday whilst I was in the kitchen tidying and cooking - shame there is no film of me jiggling about ;)
This gorgeous card is for Bertie - I shall be fixing that to his wall :)
and this lovely cross-stitch card was for me. Cross stitch is something I've never tried - probably because you seem to have to be neat & tidy - not things that come automatically to me!
Here's what I sent;
A UJ cushion
A UJ hook & notebook, a red rose ring and of course a swap isn't a swap without something edible ;)
Thanks to Lakota for undertaking the task of organising this swap and Miss_b for being my swap partner.
See you soon
