I am so pleased that the mug and tea light holder arrived safely . Thank whoever invented bubble wrap , lol.
As you can see, I went with a cupcake theme, making a cupcake pillow using a chart from one of the stitching mags , think it was Cross Stitcher. The chart matches up pretty well to one of the cupcakes on the mug , which is cool . I also included magnetic notepads , a smelly thread cupcake kit , and some WDW thread , with lovely food names ,lol and a little lady bug bag , as there are always bugs on a picnic. I really could have done this exchange two or three times over ,as I found loads of cup cake themed items, it was great.
My stitching partner was Colleen, a new to me blogger , and I'm so pleased that I have a lovely new blog to read as well as some fantastic goodies and a lovely stitched pillow from her.
The pillow is a mix of two designs, French Country Basket from JBW and the wording is from TSG .Didn't Colleen make a lovely job of it ?
She themed the exchange with a Garden Party idea , so as well as the pillow I got some lovely floral buttons , and butterflies , floral scissors , gorgeous blue threads , my first ever Dinky Dyes , looking forward to using them and lots of other fantastic gifts .
So a big Thank you to Colleen , and also to Lainey for organising the exchange ,she did a brilliant job.
Thanks for dropping by ,
