|New Zealand...such an incredibly beautiful country|
my swap partner Kimberley at Creative chaos has sent me a swap parcel which I received last week.
A smashing swap parcel all the way from New Zealand does not deserve a middling few lines in a post added in a hurry ,therefore I have had to wait as usual to the weekend to be able to write up a decent post to present the contents of Kimberly's swap parcel.
We are participating in the Four happy things swap hosted by Mrs Bobobun at Bobo Bun
Ahhhh but its exciting to receive a parcel full of happy things.
What caught my eye straight away of course is that the parcel's contents arrived in a light chevron striped beach bag,which will be ideal for our beach trips.I like to travel light when we go to the beach and this bag will be perfect.
The chocolate was demolished in a question of seconds and hubby,Sr P,liked the pineapple one best.
I have now got two more bits to add to my Winnie pooh bear hoard and its great because these are the first erasers I've received.
Kimberley has sent me a cross-stitch kit. Lovely dark linen which will make a perfect backdrop for the cross-stitch initials on the enclosed chart.
And just look at this gorgeous yarn.....Its pure wool too and a beautiful shade of green. It will be used for something special.
I am so lucky Kimberley has also sent me some crochet hooks. I never have enough of these.
Thats not all either a handknitted dishcloth and some vintage napkins completes the very generous contents of a very happily received parcel.
Thank You so much Kimberley!
Kimberley has finally received my swap parcel ...... I can now breathe easy as it has not gone astray. I did the silliest thing , I forgot to take photos of the contents of my parcel ...tch!
This means I shall have to wait until Kimberley posts about the parcel on her blog and with her permission pinch a couple of her photos to show off what I made for her on my blog too.
This little chappie popped in for a visit. He says his name is ITTLE,quite a nosey lad!
He,s been bopping about here and there throughout my place and he doesn't like having his photo taken very much! Anyhow he says he won't be here for long as he misses his Mum.
Crocheted using Nº 5 Perle cotton & Nº 2.50 hook. Pattern from here
Have a great weekend!
