Karen over at Tilly Rose organised an Autumn Scrumminess Swap back in September
and I was partnered with a lovely lady called Yvonne.
Yvonne and I emailed and found out a little more about each other before posting off our swap goodies.
Yvonne was a little nervous as this was her first swap but she needn't have worried as I love swaps and am always grateful when scrummy parcels arrive in the post.
The idea of the swap was to send 3 recipes, along with something edible, something for your stash, something floral and a little surprise.
Here was what Yvonne sent me
A pretty quilled card,
3 delicious recipes which I'm looking forward to trying,
a bar of chocolate which I am going to enjoy with a cup of tea in a moment.
more prettily wrapped gifts
I love this crafter's brooch
and this super cute gingerbread man
and hanging owl, which has been added to my autumn window display
Yvonne really spoilt me with the haberdashery gifts, I already have a piece of this fabric which I am using to make a grab bag and now I have some more I can make a pin cushion and a tailors ham for dressmaking group.
I think that Rachel is too old for me to make her one of these knitted fairy dolls so I am going to make them for myself!
And finally a tea towel with a wonderful friendship quote "Hold on to a true friend with both hands".
I told you Yvonne had spoilt me didn't I, here is a photo of all my goodies together.
Thank you Yvonne for being such a fabulous swap partner and I hope you enjoyed putting together you first swap as much as I enjoyed receiving it. And thank you Karen for organising the swap.
Here's a little peek of what I sent to Yvonne
three autumnal recipes, some autumn leave doilies, floral lace ribbon and a cone full of buttons, a bar of chocolate, a sunflower needle case and one of my grab bags in an autumnal cat fabric for Yvonne's knitting projects.
