My Autumn Swap Parcel Arrives!

Hi everyone, Well how lucky am I? I received my FRIENDS Swap from my partner Melissa in the USA last Thursday, and then today, Monday, I have received another parcel from the USA - from Lynne. This one was called an AUTUMN Swap and we were to send our partner some nice goodies in Autumn colours. This is my parcel, and although I wanted to rip it open, and look at my goodies inside, I did remember to get my camera, so I could share my good fortune with the Followers of my Blog. The first item I

found was this very cute pot holder, made by Lynne with cute fabric of little teapots and flowers. Next I found a sweet little hand made bag with a ribbon tie, made with pretty fabric of teapots and teacups. Inside I found a lovely range of tea bags, French Vanilla, some called Scripture tea bags, (they have a Bible verse on each Tea Tag) and also some Scripture sugar, a lovely set of 3 silver words for Scrapbooking: "Thankful" "Joy" "Life" - plus 2 pretty little hand made hankies made from the same pretty fabric as the little bag.

There was also a photo of Lynne, holding her dear little granddaughter River. Then there was some very pretty paper folded into the shape of a fan.

Next, a prettily wrapped parcel, in the colours of a pumpkin! Inside this parcel I found, a great pattern for a quilt, using 6 Fat Quarters it is a Legacy Pattern, and the website is if you would like to get one for yourself. The next item wrapped up was 6 lovely Fat Quarters, in the lovely bright

colours of leaves changing colours in Autumn, and pumpkins (Lynne told me she loves pumpkins). Then I found a gorgeous sign - great for my new house!!

Saying - "Trust in the Lord" - I really love it Lynne!
Then, I found a lovely book called "Be Still My Soul" by Elisabeth Elliot.

What a lovely range of presents!! Thankyou so much Lynne. I love everything, and I was thrilled to receive it all. I hope you receive your parcel from me soon too.
