Autumn Scrumminess Swap

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.

  2. Hi Tracy,
    Just read your comment about the card with the fancy tree image. You were talking about a family tree card maybe. Might be an interesting project to play around with. Will send you a message via your hotmail address.

  3. What lovely gifts you received The chocolate looks delicious. I am guessing that it long gone.

  4. Lots of lovely goodies sent both ways!! Chocolate looks yummy, but as has been said, it must have been eaten by now!! I'm still preparing for the Christmas Cracker swap!! : ) x

  5. You have been spoilt!!!! Lots of very nice goodies. As I have already experienced a swap with you I knew you'd send your partner some lovely bits and pieces too :-)
    I hope to get my Christmas cracker swap prepared this weekend and ready to post to Louise on Monday

    keep well

    Amanda :-)
