Lots of swaps!!

I have participated in 2 swaps recently and have received some amazing gifts.

The first one was in our Yahoo group C-R-A-F-T which stands for Creating Really Amazing Friends Together. It is a great group and we all consider each other great friends. Anyway, enough of that, onto the swap!

We had a CHRISTMAS in July swap where we had to send our partner something starting with each letter in the word Christmas.

My swap partner was Kerrie-Anne and here is what she sent me

C-Charm Squares and Credit Card holder

H - Handled handbag

R - Recipe Book

I - Letter I magnet and Iron on mender

S - Star pins

T - Tape in a tin

M - Mug

A - Angel

S - safety pins

I was also in the bloggers FRIENDS swap hosted by Khris. My partner was Deb from New Zealand .
Here is what I received from Deb:
F - Friendship cushion
R - Runner
I - important little incidentals (hand cream & nail file)
E - Essentials for any stitcher (Chocolate coated pineapple & Cappucino sachets)
N - Needlebook and notecards
D - Diary (covered)
S - Stitchery (cute Bronwyn Hayes one in a little purse pouch)

Thanks to both Deb & KA it has been great fun swapping with you and I love everything you have sent me.
