Knitters Tea Swap 4

What a wonderful swap week this has been. Another gorgeous packet arrived today. This time from Flutterby in Scotland. What a lovely yarn it was, great colors, tea, ceramic mug, more M&Ms (yummi - it`s my fave), Lush products (can`t get them in Norway) which I`ve wanted to try, lovely cards from Scotland, cute highland moo, Shortbread (have only once had it before, in Tasmania, Australia in 1999. I loved it and have wanted to have more since then :)), Butter tablet (hand crafted confectionary)and two of my partners fave biscuit recipes. They will be fun to try when I get a spare moment. Very busy at this moment. Those packages have really made my days. Thanks a LOT to Flutterby. :)

Fall Into Autumn Dishcloth Swap

This gorgeous packet arrived yesterday from Melissa in Chicago, IL. She really spoiled me with yarn, needles M&Ms (yummi), tea, soaps, nail file, pen, Mary Engelbreit bookmark (she`s one of my favourites), several stitch markers, two small rubberstamps and of course a cloth.
This swap has been a great experience to me, even I`m still waiting to hear if my partner has received her packages. I`ll definitely attend more swaps.
