'Initial Heart Swap' for 2015

This swap is one of my favourites to be part of... thank you so much Cheryll for another fun swap & the chance to 'meet' two new-to-me ladies!

Nanette blogs at Stitch & Sow... I made her a zipper pouch & matching shopping bag for when she goes to her local growers market... & also a mug rug to rest her glass/mug on, featuring a seed packet print. Some lollies, a tube of hand cream & a fun little Valentine garland rounded out my gifts.
Glad it will all be useful, Nanette!

My swap parcel came from Elizabeth at The Village Quilters... & wow what a very pretty package of goodies!
 A Gail Pan-inspired sewing folder, scissors, DMC, a Michelle Ridgway design ready to stitch & some yummy M&M's. The little bear head you can see is actually a tape measure - don't you love it?!
Thanks again Elizabeth & be assured I will get great use from everything xo

Well I'm not feeling the slightest bit romantic today... a hot prickly throat, blocked sore ears & suffocating sinus congestion is the culprit... How on earth did I not get sick during winter, but manage to get a stupid cold at the height of summer??!

Fantastic swap gifts to you and from you. Sorry you ate feeling unwell. I think it is because the weather keeps changing and we really haven't had summer yet. The winds have been making my throat and chest feel like they have sand in them. Angel hugs.

Nanette said...

I was the very lucky recipient of the gorgeous gifts Anthea sent to me.....she was a very clever little blog stalker I think, all the gifts suit me to a T. The bag and pouch have already had an outing to the market, and were admired by a number of people. Thanks Anthea for my lovely gifts.

Nanette said...
