Returning home after nearly six weeks away meant piles of mail waiting to be opened! Some of it was really really FUN mail! In fact, there was an abundance of fabric.
This last year I participated in a birthday fat quarter swap. There were fifteen of us in the swap, and we each sent a fat quarter to each other member on her birthday. We put in requests for favorite fabrics. My request was for aquas/reds and polka dots. What fun it was to open up all of these goodies!
Another swap I had joined was the Instagram Snacking with a mug swap. This gorgeous bundle arrived from Linda while I was away. The instructions were to include a mug, mug rug, and a book in our swap package. (yes, my book is missing from this photo! Linda included a devotion book which I am already reading and forgot to go retrieve for the photo shoot.) Linda also embroidered me a pretty tea towel and included some hot chocolate! I'm a lucky lucky girl.
It turns out partners were paired up and gave to each other in this swap, which I didn't realize! Here's the bundle I sent to Linda:
