It Has Arrived!

Today i received my swap gift from Heather. I am sooo lucky, I have received the most beautiful fabric and so many other wonderful things. I feel like what i have sent is not enough now! Here is the story...

I was driving home and, as I have everyday since i sent my parcel, waswalking up the steps thinking "oooo.. I wonder if my parcel has come today". But today was different thanyesterday, and the day before, and the day before that, it was sitting there waiting for me!
So I brung it inside and got my camera, here it is!

Iopened it it up and the first thing I saw was the wonderful bright fabric, the patterns and colours are like nothing I have seen before, I love it! And all three Heather have sent all go together, I actually feel slightly ill trying to think what I could possibly make out of it that would show it off the best. It is sooo lovely! She also sent some lovely hand made cards, (below) they have beautiful designs, some lollies, (I Luurve Lollies) and some American money, which can go in a little box I keep foreign money from all over the world in. Heather also wrote me a lovely card, I feel so lucky and happy. I can only hope heather likes what I have sent as much as I like what she has sent me.

THANKYOU HEATHER!!!

Oh, I am so excited!!! I'm so glad you like your gift; I wasn't sure if you'd like the cards or not. I can't believe it got there so fast! Isabel can't wait to see her DS pouch, and I can't wait to see the sausage dog...

Don't worry about if you sent enough; I'm just thrilled to be part of my very first international exchange. And you put so much work into your projects; it will be more than enough!

You are so sweet to do such a great post. Isn't blogging great?!
