'Stuff-In-A-Tin' Swap

Not having done a swap for a while, this one was so great to be part of!

Thanks to the ladies over at No Fuss Swappers, I've sent & received wonderful tins full of equally wonderful goodies... thanks ladies, I'll be in for future swaps, for sure♥

It was lovely to meet a new-to-me blogger through doing this swap... I sent my parcel to Jan, who blogs over at Little Red Hen. I adore tins, so I found it fun to find a pretty one for Jan, & then goodies that would fill it. I wrapped the tin in that pretty blue fq before posting.
Jan is on holidays now, so I hope she doesn't mind me sharing what I sent to her:
 

My tin arrived from Lynda, wrapped in the fab fq of Kate Spain fabric... thanks again Lynda, I love all the goodies you stuffed in there for me! The FQ is so fun, & hhmmm are you issuing me a challenge by sending me some half-inch hexy papers?!

Some of you may have noticed that I've gone quiet on The Great Backyard Project updates... well, we hit a few delays... & then some more... it's been annoying, but nothing that won't get finished eventually.
Our new poured concrete patio needs to be re-honed because we've been getting terrible puddling from the rain, worse than it ever was with the old patio paving. That's a messy noisy job, but it needs to be done, I can't keep wading through lakes every time I go outside!

As for my sewing room... the flooring will be going in on Tuesday 10th... my carpenter will then return to put on the skirting boards... then it's finally time for me to move in... finally... feels like it's been a l-o-n-g time coming.
Here's where the room is at now:
Oh-so close!

Thanks for popping by - Have a great day!

I've been seeing tins popping up all over blogland, and I think it sounds like one of the most fun swaps ever! They all look pretty small - was there a size limit? Can't wait for the Grand Opening of your sewing room!!!!!!!!

I've loved seeing all the clever things that can be stuffed in a little tin, and such pretty tins as well. It must have been fun putting it together. Here's hoping your backyard project finishes soon. Let's hope your patio puddling is fixed soon. It won't be long till the fun part of setting up your sewing studio begins. Something to look forward to.
