Treats in the post!

As seems to be becoming ‘normal’ its been a while since I last posted!  Shame on me, I know.  There is loads to catch up on but I have a very particular reason to post today and that is because I received some great goodies in the post that I wanted to share.

In January Ali at Snipsnaphappy set up a little new year swap which was very good of her!  I’ve only taken part in one swap before and thought it was about time I did another one.

I received details of my swap partner and set to work on putting together some lovely things for her.  However, I  can’t tell you about those yet as I haven’t heard that she’s received them and its all about the surprise in this swap!!

I also knew that at some point I’d receive a treat in the post from the person who was given me to make for!  And what a treat I received.  Let me introduce Claire from The Hookery!! Look what Claire sent to me:


How lucky am I???  Very!  The felt needle case is beautifully handmade in the softest felt.  Very much needed too as I have my needles currently rattling around in a tin which never struck me as very wise.  (Although like Claire I love tins).  And as for that owl, what can I say.  He has lots of personality with his big eyes and he smells wonderful as he is stuffed full of yummy lavender!  Of course buttons of any sort are fabulous – and chocolate ones are always a treat!!

Somehow I had never come across The Hookery before, but it’s a lovely crochet blog and it’s now on my reading list.  Do have a look and say ‘hi’ to Claire while you’re there!

    Hi Fiona it’s Erica, your Snipsnaphappy sawp recipient!  So guess what I came home to find in my mailbox this afternoon?  It was perfect timing as I came home early because I’m a bit sick so a pick me up was much needed.  Thank you so much!  I love everything.  The hat is gorgeous and the colors perfect.  And the bracelet!  From the packaging to the contents everything was so nice and I can wait to wear/use all of it.  Thank again!!
