Spring Swap Goodies

I recently took part in Emma's Spring Swap.

I was partnered with Janice (JP).

Janice is a retired primary teacher and loves reading blogs, she plans to begin blogging herself in the near future and I really look forward to becoming a follower and reading all about her crafty makes.

I typically forgot to take any photographs of the things I sent to Janice, but she sent me a lovely email letting me know things had arrived safely and that she loved everything.

I did however take pictures of the lovely parcel of goodies that I received from Janice.


There was a ball of the softest most gorgeous peachy coloured cotton yarn - I have been wanting a nice pretty coloured cotton yarn to crochet into facecloths and this fits the bill perfectly. There was also a pretty organza bag containing some fluffy little Easter chicks and pastel coloured wooden eggs - perfect for Easter decorations. A packet of unusual Nasturtium seeds, these are mixed colours with marbled foliage - I'm looking forward to planting these up for a splash of colour in the summer. There were also six pretty wrapped parcels and a little gift box to open.


Upon opening my gifts I found: A pretty green/blue hand crafted brooch, a lovely flower stamp, the most gorgeous vintage chiffon and lace runner, this is so delicate and beautiful and I have one or two ideas for this ( I will post and let you know what at a later date), also packaged with this was a lovely piece of vintage coffee coloured lace, I have already used some of this to make a fabric flower brooch, again something I will share in a later post. There was also a bag of the most delightful green buttons and a bag of pretty ribbons and yarns. Last but not least choccy treats (they didn't last long after the photo was taken ; D

I am really pleased with my swap parcel - I love it all and look forward to showing you how I make use of these pretty supplies.

Thanks Janice.
