More goodies from afar


A while ago I joined in with a book swap over at Zoe's knitting bag. I was to swap with the fab Sally over at redfish. The idea of the swap was find a book that had been written or first published at least forty years ago that made some reference to knitting. The section was to be marked with a homemade bookmark either sewn, knitted or crocheted.
I sent my package off and hopefully it will arrive safe and sound in the UK in the next few days, but Sally's parcel to me arrived on Saturday.

Inside was a book, one I haven't read before and look forward to delving into, a fabulous vintage bookmark filled with lavender. How I love that smell. Some purple napkins and a ball of wool in my favourite colour.

The book mark has the most beautiful fabrics which Sally wrote and told me were vintage and is finished with an arrangement of darling buttons, one pink, one green and a silver heart.

The focus is shocking as I am pretty useless at taking photos of everything.
I especially love the cute little face stickers that were on the back of the parcel and the card which you can see in the first picture. So sweet.
Thank you very much Sally I shall enjoy them all and I really hope you will be pleased with your package too.

Swaps are so fun, you never know what you will end up with and what a cool idea with the bookmark.
