PacKages ArriVe

Maree from On My Verandah organised a colour swap and we had to send material, thread, yummy food and a pretty to our secret partner in her favourite colour. I sent my package to Alison and it arrived there safe and sound. So now I can show just what I posted off to her in Queensland.

Green polka dots material.
Thread, floss and ribbon.
Peppermint chocolate.
Washer (embroidered initial A) soap, cream.
Apple fragrance liners.

All in a GrEEn gift bag!

I'm so HaPPy Alison liked it!

Sheryl has also let me know that my OASS package arrived in one piece. Sheryl lives in Victoria and my package was delivered faster than I expected... but I won't show you what I sent off to her as she has already posted a pic and will link it up on Friday. Come by and visit then.

My February block in Christmas Quilting Block Swaps Australia arrived from Janet from the Yukon via Newfoundland. Janet is off sightseeing on a road trip and so posted my block from the edge of Canada.
It is just superb! Janets workmanship is wonderful and her colour choice is perfect!
ThAnK YoU so much... I'll add it to my collection!

That looks lovely Cheryll and I'm sure your intended recipient will love it. I just send my Colour Swap off and I must say it was challenging trying to find a post friendly food in the colour I was given. I did it though.
I just wish the Best Friends Exchange had gone through, but my partner seems to have fallen off the planet.
Oh well, maybe next year I can be in a block swap.

You received some lovely goodies in the mail.
