Some time ago I entered Kimberley's Kitchen swap, and I was partnered with the lovely Tracy of Mad About Bags. I've been lucky enough to have Tracy as a swap partner before, and I know she is a very generous partner to swap with, so when she emailed me to say that she was very busy, and my swap gift might take a little longer than usual, I was quite happy to wait. And the wait was certainly worth it.
My package arrived yesterday, and I opened it excitedly to find this.
The swap involved four categories. The first was a kitchen accessory, so I was delighted to find these lovely stacking containers (which I might sneekily keep in my studio).
The next category was a consumable, I think Tracy must know me quite well, I'm a real tea lover.
Category three was a tea-towel, and Tracy sent me not one, but two, how generous is that? The first depicts Country Houses of Essex - the county of my birth, the second depicts Wildlife of Wiltshire - my current home county.
The fourth and final category was something hand made, and again Tracy's generosity knows no bounds, as she sent me one of her fabulous grab-bags
and this, isn't it just lovely, and is most definitely going to be hung on the door of my studio, Green Man is already instructed to fix me a hanging for it. I'm also going to photograph it properly later on and use it as my new blog header.
Also included in the package was this lovely card
I had also asked Tracy if she had any blue fabric scraps that I could have for a project I intend to start over the winter months, and she very kindly included this pile for me.
Thank you Tracy for once again being a very generous swap partner.
