F.R.I.E.N.D.S swap

I am catching up a bit with things I want to post. This post is about the F.R.I.E.N.D.S swap run by Khris of Sew Prim Khris. The idea was to send things which start with the letters in the word FRIENDS.

I had just arrived home from retreat ( that's still another story to come) and the parcel was waiting for me - of course I ripped it open straight away.Well, I did say hello to my family first....

My swap partner was Lida from The Netherlands, which is why this parcel is full of lovely blue and white goodies. The photos aren't the best because I took them at night as soon as I opened them. You might like to look at better ones on Lida's blog at this post.

 The card with the clogs had all the items written down so using Lida's words here what I received.
 F = for Feathered Friends and Flowers!  ( A lovely panel)
 R= for Ribbons in Blue and Green ( My favourite colours)
 I = for in a book very handy!
 E= for Empty but you may fill it yourself ! ( a fabric covered heart box)
 N= for Needles and Pins! ( Beautiful!)
 D = Dutch Shopping bag! (How did she know I love shopping bags!)
 S= for Snowy Cushion Cover! ( I can't wait to use this for Christmas)
Thank you so much Lida for all the lovely beautiful things - I love them all!
