A Pink Parcel!

good morning all!
i'm joining in with 'my creative space'..at kootoyoo this morning...

before christmas,
i put my name down with maree from 'on my verandah'
to take part in my very first swap ever.

{thanks maree for organising this...they don't happen by themselves!}

it was a 'colour swap'.
the colour i chose was 'pink'!

the partner i had wanted 'red'
so i put together some red stuff and sent it away
i had to get some red thread
a fat quarter in red
a red treat
and include something pretty that was red...

that was a lot of fun

anyway
melody sent me some pink stuff...

that's the lovely 'dog' card..and you know i love dogs...
thanks melody..very thoughtful,
my georgeous variegated pink embroidery thread..
haha! i was just thinking of buying more variegated thread..
so it's just what i wanted.

the very pretty fat quarter is what i've used as a background
...a 'table cloth' to put everything on to show you all.

i was showing off to my brother on the weekend
and he wanted a piece of the coconut ice that melody sent
so that was opened immediately
and we all scoffed it for morning tea! yum!

there was also a pink packet of 'droste' chocolate pastilles
and
cute hot pink foil wrapped chocolate hearts
...talk about spoiled!

do you see that beautiful rosy magnet there,
that cute pencil
and a little package wrapped in clear cellophane
with soap and a tube of hand cream..wow..
and the pink ribbon she wrapped the parcel with?

but i haven't even got to the best part yet...


i reckon the very best of all
was that she made that amazing mug rug
and dilly bag
that i will be able to keep forever!

i just love the fabrics she's used in them too.

so
thank you melody,
what a treat!

i hope someone has treated you too today...
