I unfortunately missed the sign up for ChookyBlue's Christmas Swap but Wendy (another swapper who did signed up) emailed me to say would I like to do a little swap on the side using the same rules and guidelines.
So this morning guess what arrived in the post!!
A lovely card which says made in the USA on the back and a great tree decoration with fun pom pom trim on it. Sophie had the job of finding a place to put it on the tree.
It looks great on the tree. Over the past 4 years of blogging I have been lucky enough to take part in the odd swap or been sent Christmas items which have been handmade and they are all very unique and add a charm to the house. Perhaps I should do a post on those this week. It really is a lovely shape, great fabric too.
In the top picture you can see a red parcel and Wendy has said that it can be opened this week so that it can be used and seen. I have resisted so far and thought I would wait until Christmas Eve night. I shall also post what I sent Wendy once it has been opened, I do not want to spoil the surprise. I do hope Wendy will like it.
Many thanks Wendy for your generous offer to swap with me and for the parcel you sent. I have also found a new craft blog friend at the same time.
