Initial Heart Swap

Last night I received my parcel from De for the Initial Heart Swap.  De was my swap partner as well and we both managed to get Australia Post to deliver our parcels on the same day which was really nice.

This is what I received from De.

A thread catcher which is so handy and a needlecase/pocket and of course some yummy chocolate.  De really kept to the heart theme with heart fabrics and buttons.  Thanks so much De I love my gifts.

This is what I sent to De.

A bag for scissors it is a pattern by Marg Low, together with some pink heart fabric, some heart pins and some sweet heart lollies.  I was really worried about sending chocolate in the post I had visions of my parcel sitting on the tarmac at the airport in 40 degree heat and De receiving a melted mess hence I went with the sweet hearts.

Thanks De I have already been using my thread catcher and also a big thanks to Cheryll for organising the swap it was great fun.

Until next time happy stitching.
