Wonderful Packages I Received

The first package was from Suzie who was my partner in Linda from A Swap for All Seasons An Altered Treasured Tin Swap. Susie made this beautiful tin for me.
Check out this cool!

and then all of the goodies inside the tin. There are magnets, paperclips, buttons, ribbon, a tag, flowers and the prettiest little images in glass. Thank you so much Susie for such a beautiful tin and so many fun things to sit and awe over.

This is the tin I made for Susie.

This is the package that Gillian sent to me all the way from Ireland for the Sleepover Swap. It has been held up in our postal system for a couple of months now, but it finally arrived the other day. Gillian made the eye mask, the pouch and the barrettes. She has the tiniest and most perfect stitching I have ever seen! The kids decided this was a fun swap package and that I needed to share some of the things with them. Ezie ate the candy that she sent before I could get a picture, Jace has claimed the comb and mirror and Mallory wants the barrettes.
Thank you Gillian for a fun swap!

and this is the Annie pattern I won from Awtem Nymf's giveaway to celebrate Annie's Birthday. There is the 2 doll patterns and the cat included. Yay! I can't wait to get started!
Thanks Awtem Nymf!!
