After my return from vacation, I also received my beautiful package in the #Stitchingsanta2017 Swap, that was all coordinated by the lovely Sheila (Sewchet)
I am always amazed at just how well people can get to know a person by reading a person’s blog. 🙂 I had loads of fun putting together my swap buddy’s package, and making things for her. I always love to hear about their surprise when they receive a package from my part of the world.
It is even more fun receiving a package with foreign stamps and packaging. 🙂 This year my package came from way “down under” and across the big pond. Yes, all the way from Australia. The lovely Emma of emmacraftdesign surprised me!
A really fun package to open! I received yarn that has possum fur in, how amazing is that. And the cutest project bag, just look at that little critter. And stitch markers, with a little marker that she made herself, that looks just like Miekie!
She also crocheted my the cutest small Manta Ray, that I fell in love with immediately. I have put the little ray in my car so I can have it around all the time. I fell in love with Mantarays while on vacation in Cape Town and visited the Two Oceans Aquarium, where I spent hours watching them as they glided over my head in their huge tank.
Emma also sent me a small cross stitch kit, that was just the right size for me to kick off 2018. 🙂 My first project for this year!
Thank you Sheila and Emma for a wonderful swap.
