Sisters' Shoebox Swap
These are the goodies my sisters' swap partner sent to me! The top picture is the shoebox crammed full, wrapped in tissue paper in my (and her) favorite color, blue. The second picture shows the items spread out on my kitchen table.
This was the first swap I've participated in. My partner was Ms. Ruth. She obviously put lots of time and thought into the goodies she packed for me. We were supposed to pack a shoebox with items that would "refresh". I can tell that Ms. Ruth is special because she has individually wrapped many of the items and placed little notes on many of them too! She has been visiting my blog and knew all about the things I like and she included lots of them! The book in the picture is a cookbook written by quilters. It has quilting tips, sewing projects and lots of great recipes from quilt shop owners and quilters. She gave me a Debbie Mumm magnetic notepad who anybody who quilts knows. There are many "refreshing things and lots of special touches and treasures for me to savor!!!
These are the blogs of the two sisters who sponsored this swap:
