Last one, I promise!!
I wanted to wait until I got both packages before I posted about them. My second partner's package arrived yesterday, so now I'm so excited to show you my goodies!
My first partner was Steph from Stephie's Stories. Look at the fabulous things she sent me! A beautiful mug rug, a quilted tote for carrying rulers and cutting supplies, and even a coordinating mug for my rug!
I love the colors in this mug rug, especially the mug fabric, which is also what's on the back. Can you see the quilting that makes the steam over the mug? So great.
Steph even made a mix for an individual mug-sized Molten Lava Cake and made a pretty bag for it, too. I made it the other night after the kids were in bed and it was great! Does anyone else give themselves a treat for making it through another day?
I was beginning to wonder a bit about my second package, but yesterday I checked the mail on the way home from preschool and got a fun surprise...a puffy white envelope marked Royal Air Mail, all the way from Britain! So fun.
And what was inside?
The brilliant Hadley from Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle sent a beautiful mug rug, sewing kit, chocolates, a magazine, and some cute owl stickers. Quite a haul! I can't wait to get some quiet time to sit down and look through that magazine and maybe sample some chocolates. Can you see the featured article is making jams and jellies? Quite appropriate, no?
I love that fussy bee and the pops of orange. The back is beautiful, too...
And look at the inside of the sewing kit:
How fun is that? I'm very excited to have a little needle book to take with me in the car! Now I just need to figure out a fun hand sewing project. Any suggestions?
I have had such a great time in this swap, in case you hadn't noticed!
