I said all that and more!
Sr P also peered in among the goodies lifting up a parcel here and there while he sniffed and said ......it smells of cinnamon.
The presentation of it all was so alluring that I was dying to get to and open up all the little parcels. It made for some enjoyable moments as we oohed and ahhed as I unwrapped each parcel.
I am participating in Blueberry Hearts Golden Autumn Swap
and the previous introduction is a brief description of first impressions of the contents of the swap parcel I received from Ellie at Feltabulous last Thursday. As luck would have it we also received each others swap parcels practically simultaneously so you can find the contents of what I sent to Ellie here in her latest post.
Let me show you because the contents indeed must be seen as Ellie has been extremely generous.
Look buttons ...more for my collection and lace!!! Love it!
The bracelets are wonderful. I have already worn the orange one and it is very comfortable. I very often do not wear bracelets as they bother me ;this one does not. I do like the idea of the picture giving a description of the different types of beads used.
Do you see the burnt orange felt heart? Ellie made that and from Merino Wool!!
There is more. A notebook,postcards,a key ring which is now hanging from my bag handle, love those pretty stones dangling from the side of my handbag.A Traditional English recipe booklet . I'm thinking of scanning off a couple of those recipes for my students. I can use that in class and it will also show them we do not eat sandwiches or fast food all the time,as they seem to think so.
I am trying to pump as much gratefulness and sincere sense of pleasure into this post as possible to try and portray just how much I appreciate these marvelous swap gifts. Ellie has been most thoughtful as I can see she has taken into account just what I like.
Thank you so much Ellie for the care and consideration to me a stranger that you have shown in the selection of swap gifts that you have sent me.
Thank you also to Blueberry Heart for hosting such a wonderful swap and I look forward to next years as well.
I have been thoroughly spoilt these last few days I received something else and this time from the USA but I'll leave that for my next post.
I'll just add a photo of what I am working on at the moment
30 Granny squares done and 32 to go.....groan!!!! As I mentioned in my previous post ...noooo it is not a blanket! Can you guess what it is going to be??? :-)
Have a great weekend
