Hello again, hope you are all enjoying the spring sunshine!
If you are a reader of the crafts@home blog (which I highly recommend to you - no, she doesnt pay me for the publicity!!) you will know that my fabulous friend Sue and I were paired up for the SMMS swap - as we only live a mile away from each other, this meant we could swap IN PERSON!!!!! So we decided that we would swap on the first day of spring.
Look at the lovely things I received:
Two votive candle holders, all hand painted by Sue with springy daffodils - these look amazing when lit:
Some cute as pie bunny biscuits, baked especially by Sue for me for the swap (did the moonstruck crew's eyes light up when they saw them!)
And then there was this little beauty:
Not spring colours? Well, you see the beauty of us being paired up for this swap is that we have been the best of friends since the first day at art college (which only seems a couple of years ago but is a bit longer than that.....) and although I love all the bright springy colours I do favour autumnal/winter/muted colours - whenever Im in a yarn or craft shop those are the colours I am drawn to. So she made this for me in the colours which I love the best.
AND - as if all these goodies werent enough, apparently she has an extra something for me but, in the tradition of having four kids like me, has misplaced it somewhere so as soon as it is found I will blog about it here!
All in all lovely goodies from a highly talented lady. Thanks so so so much for everything.
