swaps

I was lucky enough to recieve 2 swap parcels today...my colour swap from laura

and I received green goodies like the lampwork bead bracelet on my wrist below and the necklace above, also green fabric, ribbon and buttons and beads. (not forgetting the green choccie eggs that I forgot to put out of sight after photograph taking, so had to share with eagle eyed boys!!!!!!)
don't know who put the old lady hand at the end of my arm :( - note to self ...more handcream!!!

And my flower swap, from anilla..

love the scandanavian folk style fabric at the front..I have just the project to use it for...and the tissue holder is embroidered so beautifully...my pic does not do it justice....there is also a sarong tie, a pretty pink shopping bag, some lavender bags and summer flower seeds , a make up bag and rose scented bubble bath.
Thank You ladies for my great gifts and for being great swap partners.

Thank You also to all of you with well wishes for my easter illness!!
I am now feeling better - I left the house today, apart from a half hour sea wall walk on Sunday, I've been inside!!
On the plus side, I started my nieces easter gift...they are not visiting until next week so have a bit of breathing space...more on that tomorrow (ie I forgot to take pics and now its dull!!)
I also started and finished this book.....

it was fabulous..love love loved it....
Today I saw this movie...

I started sniffling about 5minutes in and didn't really stop lol!! So inspiring and well.... just lovely!!

Lovely packages! I have old lady hands too, sadly. For me it's a combination of sensitive skin and slightly obsessive washing...

Glad to hear you're feeling better and doing so well.

Book looks good, really must learn not to judge by the cover but you said it was good so must be ;) Will look out for that one.
Looking forward to seeing the film but will probably wait till on dvd.

So glad you finally received it! I was thinking I would have to raid the Post Office HQ or something to find it!

I love the bracelet from the colour swap too!

I took a photo of my hand today for a blog post and was so shocked at how old it looked didn't post it lol. Hand cream, hand cream and more hand cream - if only the cream would stay on for more than 5 mins.

I am laughing about your comment about old lay hands. I was thinking the same thing about mine. I have the hand cream, just keep forgetting to put it on.
You have received some lovely things. I am looking forward to seeing what you have been up to with your patch ribbons.
Take care,

'Mudbound' sounds pretty good, a little different for me, but I'm looking at venturing out a bit more - I'm wondering if this will be the first book I download onto my eReader!! Karen xx
