Well, I took part in the magic ball swap organised by our lovely Lynda over at Hookin' With LaaLaa.
The ways things went Lynda and I ended up being paired with two ladies each and the first of my macig ball swaps arrived today from the lovely Pene - Scrap my Mid Life Crisis.
A wonderful bundle of gorgeousness awaited:
Check out the stunning card - those flowers are magnets!
Everything in it's glory... there was, shopping bag, sweeties, beads, wire, flowers, trim, peg board, coffee/tea cozy, brooch, sweet tape and scrummy yummy wool.
These look good enough to eat...
You don't know how apt this is for me, it's now on the key rack next to the back door so I can't miss it.
Wonderful Rosali Tea Cosy - it fits takeaway cups and I love it - Pene sells these check them out here.
Sweeties - now all gone *blushes*
Wasn't I a lucky lady? Thanks again Pene for the gifts I love them all. And thanks to Lynda for organising it all.
Now both my ladies have their gifts I can show what I sent too, each parcel was pretty similar:
Remember my little taster a few weeks ago of makes I couldn't show, little wooly makes...
and little felty makes...
Well they turned into gifts to add to my magic ball swaps, little needle cases...
And little knitted cotton facecloths...
Well just like busses, two swap parcels arrived today. I also received my Fabric Swap parcel from a lovely lady Kerri from the other side of the world, Australia. I will give that a post all of it's own tomorrow, how exciting, what a day!
Before I go, have a little look at these,
aren't they the sweetest things ever, handmade with love by the talented Beki. I've been back and bought more of these this week as I just had to have them. I can't bear to use them they are currently sat on my shelf still bundled in twine.
Beki was amazed that they were selling like 'hot cakes' in her shop, but I think it's easy to see why ~ pop over and see her little delights.
