My Very First Bloggy Swop

Look what I received today in the post.  My very first bloggy swop parcel.  I swopped with Jacey from CoffeenCrochet blog.  She has done me proud.  I got beautifully fragranced soap and a bath bomb.  Some stickers, paper chains,  a delightful tin heart, pretty tissues, tiny heart pegs, CHOCOLATE heart, spotty ribbon with crochet trim (did you do that Jacey) and a lovely set of crochet heart bunting.  

I'm a lucky girl and loved receiving the parcels.  They were wrapped in the most beautiful birdy tissue paper.

Thank you so very very much.
Here is what I sent.

I had to have a chuckle when I opened one of the parcels - the one with the crochet heart bunting - because as you can see I sent Jacey some that was almost identical.  Well great crocheters think alike.  Different colour palettes though (and Jacey's was firmer - did you starch it Jacey?)  The pattern I used was from  Julia Crossland although I did tweak it a bit.  TTFN. May be visiting Saltaire tomorrow will try and remember to take my camera.

So glad you liked them, very funny we made the same thing, you have saved me a job though as I was going to make another set for the girls room, now I don't have to.
Thankyou so much for my wonderful, wonderful gifts, looking forward to some flip flop weather. xx
