another seaside swap post :)

I was very lucky to have Jo as my swap partner in the Seaside Swap, and on Tuesday the postie knocked with a fabulous parcel for me :)I was so spoilt! I locked the boys in another room so I could open in peace lol!!
Ice Cream Sundae embroidery on a personalised tea towel. I just love a personalised item, and this is 1 teatowel that most definately won't get used!
More embroidery now, fantastic birthday cards with beach scenes, and more ice creams!!
I have spent a long time admiring the machine embroidery and am convincing myself that I neeeed a new machine (think I'll have to wait!!) - its genius!!!
I shall try hard to actually use the cards and not be precious and just save them!!
Jo knows that I will be going on holiday very soon and has made me some very useful items....

How cute is this fabric! A lovely make up bag, sunglasses case (complete with sunglasses)and a cashless wallet.

They are all going to come in so handy for my holiday :)
My eldest started hovering shortly after my opening my packages and tells me that the sugar dummy below was delicious!!
And for my trips to the beach, a gorgeous and very roomy bag....
I think I could well have lost one of my gifts.....

a beautiful seaside print bear. He really is gorgeous :)
Cute face......
(excuse the mess in the background, ikea bags etc - it is the spare room lol!!!)And already quite at home!!!

I wrestled him off C as I got all precious about him getting spoiled!!!
Somebody loves him VERY much!!
Thank You so much Jo for being a great swap partner, I am thrilled with everything and really appreciate all your hard work xxx
(Jo's folksy shop is here if you want to see some more of her lovely makes x)
