Color Swap and Giveaway

Look what arrived in the mail today - a lovely parcel from Susan of  www.susans-sewing-space.blogspot.com.au who was my secret partner in Cheryll's color swap.  My color was red and look at all the yummy things Susan had sent me
Beautifully wrapped and a gorgeous card.
For something personal - this beautiful pouch./bag with my initial and inside were some lovely red threads, luggage tag and some pretty braid. Something edible were Lindt chocolates - a big favorite, raspberry lollypop and some cranberry and pomegranate teabags.
I had been admiring everyone's beautiful handmade handtowels and now I have one of my own, and for something smelly was some gorgeous soap which is at the top of the handtowel and I could smell as soon as I opened my parcel..  Thankyou Susan for my amazing parcel and spoiling me so much - just loved all my pressies, thankyou.

The parcels I sent off to my partner have been received and opened, so I will show you those too -

Her color choice was pretty green. The bag I made for "something personal" was a lovely one of Michelle's from Country Threads magazine.

And for the home I made this little doiley and couldn't resist the little birdie to go with it
Something edible
And something smelly.

And my partner was..... Cheryll, the swap mama herself. Glad you liked your gifts Cheryll

And don't forget if you havn't entered my 100th blog post giveaway, just leave a comment on the previous post and I will draw on Saturday evening.  Cheryl
