Lovely swap partner....

Morning girls,

I got a lovely e mail from Betty at "mrs yappy dog", my swap partner in the "spring makes me sing" swap hosted by Jackie from "sew special bears" telling how delighted she was with her parcel I sent her.

It's lovely when someone appreciates what you've sent them but, it's even nicer making things and rummaging around their blog finding out their likes and dislikes etc.

Anyway here's what I sent to the lovely Betty,



I know she'd love a little dog so I made her one



I also made her some little birdies filled with rose petals for her shoes, and I covered an art book for her paintings/notes, some crafty bits, CK shopper and keyring, a mug and matching t.towel, a mohair brooch and some Bettys chocolate and postcard.....and happily Betty loved everything.



It's nearly April and I havn't yet showed you "my monthly makes" for March so I'd better get my finger out and take some piccies and I'm expecting delivery of a very, very big parcel any day and I can't wait to show you it!!!

Bye for now

Love Lucey xxx

The month is running away with us -I've still to find 4 pictures for the Photo Scavenger Hunt!

Lovely swap pressies - like we'd expect anything else these days - bloggy swaps are the best.

What a fab parcel you sent to Betty - everything was chosen with such care and you obviously did your research! I love the mohair brooch - do you have a pattern for it Lucey? Have a good weekend. x

Lucey I have been working and am just catching up on blogs - hadn't seen this post - you were a brilliant swap partner - I love my dog and so does my family - he lives at the top of my sofa and also I love my mohair brooch so much I wear it every day on my denim jacket - the little notebook is so useful and pretty - the ck keyring now holds my allottment key, the ck bag holds my library books - I was thoroughly spoilt and to have chocolate from a shop with my name! so much thought and care - hope to swap with you again one day - Betty x
