My Wonderful Holiday Swap Package

BA{m}S Swap for me from Jill

Look at that wonderful package that I received from Jill in the year end holiday swap in the Bee a {Modern} Swapper group. This group has had alternating months of optional swaps with months of bee blocks and it wraps up after January's bee blocks.

This is the wonderful wrapping for my package. Even a stocking - made I think for an old sweater, isn't that a great idea.

Jill made me everything I hinted at wanting. A perfect bright pink sunglasses case - this is already in use and is large enough to slip my reading glasses into too. The hot pink tape measure has a far better chance of being found than my usual 10,000 lost tape measures. And a really lovely journal. I think I will keep this journal on my cutting table and use it for quilting notes, sizes, ideas, and such. I have been meaning to do that forever but never got around to getting the journal.

I started quilting just too late to get some of my favourite Heather Ross fabrics and I don't have any of the four Jill featured in the quilt. The fish in bags are my all time favourite, and look she included one for me.

This mini is perfect and will hang in my sewing room. Thank you Jill for such a perfect package!

Tomorrow I have to fess up to my Q4 FAL results. Not stellar.

Best,

Leanne

  3. Fab package and love that mini! I was far too late for those goldfish (which I love too) but I was lucky enough that Kim at My Go Go Life sent me some :o)

  5. Lovely swaps - I fear the goldfish all swam off into expensive waters before I started dabbling too!

  13. It's always fun to get treasures in the mail, and I think your group's idea is brilliant! After seeing the glasses case, I'm thinking one is in my future. As usual, I always get inspiration from your blog.
