Sweet Tweet Swap

Just a quick post today. I was involved in this fun swap put together by the lovely Ele of A bit of Pink Heaven. You had to send something hamdmade and something sweet, with a bird/nest/spring theme. A had Rachel from the USA as my swap partner, and here are the lovely goodies that she sent to me.

A lovely bag with a knitted nest inside, with three knitted blue eggs which represent my three boys.

And here is what I sent to Rachel.

Thank you to Rachel for being my partner for this swap. If you would like to see more of Rachel's knitting creations go here.

If you would like to see what everyone else received there is a list of participants on Ele's blog, thank you Ele for hosting this great swap.

Hello my bloggy friend! WooHoo!!! Party day is just a week away! I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's creative spaces. I have a request... I thought it would be easier for everyone to leave comments if we all turned off comment moderation and word verification during the day (or maybe week) of the party. To do that, go to customize, settings, comments...then scroll down to turn off comment moderation and word verification.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a fabulous week. See you next Friday!!
