Just as I needed something to cheer me up after the stressful previous week the postman arrived with a neat little package from my Bobo Bun Swap partner, Ethel from Eco Ethel.
It contained four lovely pressies, all wrapped up in music sheets. i loved the wrapping so much that I tried my best not to tear when opening them. For colour there was a lovely "cake" badge, that is now sitting happily on my rucksack.
Vintage was a beautiful pink table mat with applique flowers.
For handmade Ethel sent me a sweet little button necklace, purple in colour. And handy enough I had just bought a new jumper and I was looking for a necklace to go with it. This one just suits the bill.
And finally my favourite, for handmade there were two Dandy comic buntings. I just loved comics as a child and if I'm honest I still do. So this was a perfect swap idea.
Thanks Ethel. Your pressies cheered me up no end and it arrived just at the perfect time for me.
This is what I sent to Ethel:
For colour I made an apple and pear pinny.
For handmade I knitted a chunky handbag. Perfect for carrying knitting WIPs.
Vintage was a small little coin purse.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the childhood pressie. I thought that a wooden cup and ball toy would keep Ethel entertained.
For a first swap, I must say that I enjoyed it most thoroughly. I will definitely do it again.
Do you enjoy swaps? Did you get anything nice?
