Hi everyone, I've been hiding again but am trying to get back in to regular blogging and there is no better time to blog than when you have just received a gorgeous load of goodies through the post.
I signed up for the cosy autumn swap over at blueberry heart and was partnered with Helen from Moonstruckcreations, we emailed each other a few times to find out likes and dislikes and this is what Helen sent me through the post.....
lots of lovely packages wrapped up with orange and black tissue paper
a wonderful striped ball of wall, I have my thinking cap on as to what I want to make with this.
a super cute owl pouch, which I have had to hide from my daughter!
orange and brown ribbons
a lovely autumnal hanging heart, I love the idea of the embellished leaves
some scrumptious chocolate which were delicious :) but which I had to share :(
I love the scent of this soap (honey and oatmeal) and the wrapper is brilliant too, I might just have to keep the wrapper for crafting I'm sure I can use it somehow
another cute autumnal gift in the way of this pumpkin, I have added this and the hanging heart to my autumnal window display.
Like lots of you I love collecting threads, ribbons and buttons so I was thrilled to receive these variegated embroidery threads
some sumptuous satin ribbons
and lots of lovely buttons, which are going to make a great addition to my ever growing collection.
here are all my goodies from Helen photographed together
thanks Helen for being such a great swap partner.
Now I know Helen has already blogged about the goodies I sent so I can show them here too.
I went with a pumpkin theme as Helen mentioned she liked to collect pumpkins.
a fabric pumpkin
a crochet wreath with pumpkins and leaves
pumpkin chocolate treats and a hot chocolate sachet
an autumnal scented candle
a pumpkin coloured crochet flower brooch
a box of tissues
and finally some pumpkin fabric and autumn ribbon
I also managed to find a super pumpkin card in the charity shop card box but i forgot to take a photo of it but you can see it over at Helen's blog
