Lets Celebrate Swap Gifts

I received a lovely parcel in the post yesterday from Julie, my swap partner in Mrs Martins "Let's Celebrate" swap. The theme this time was "Biggest Morning Tea"
Included was a lovely biscuit cookbook - delicious recipes - my granddaughter has already picked out several that we can make together, a coffee bag and a very special tea bag at the top of the picture which is way too nice to use and very old worldly looking.
And look at my most gorgeous mug rug - such beautiful fabrics and definitely my colors. Can you see the yummy Darryl Lea choccie frog poking his head out (which is now devoured I must admit). Also included wias Julie's favorite fruit cake recipe which I shall look forward to trying. Thankyou Julie  for my beautiful gifts - just loved them all - I was very spoilt.
I sent Julie a mug bag to take along to her stitching group, some teas and choccies.
A Natalie Ross design - has a cute ruffle on the top which hasn't shown up very well in the photo. And I popped inside a little birdie mug and a favorite rum ball recipe.

I'm off for a wonderful weekend of stitching in the Dandenongs with Gail Pan and Lisa from Fig n Berry Creations - sounds like heaven doesn't it. Have a great weekend. Cheryl
