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...
