Swap received !

Is it a dream or is it real ?  It’s really real !  A package from the Netherlands arrived  today from a sweet swap partner named Bettina :

She thoughtfully sent 2 fat quarters of cute fabric (I LOVE the doggie one !),  ribbon,  embroidery floss,  a packet of Black-eyed Susan seeds, and a beautiful card with a mouse on it.   These Spring treats came with a quilted bucket bag she sewed with crochet trim and ribbon details.

I am almost done sewing her swap gift and plan to mail it Friday. 

Thanks Bettina !! XX OO

As a sidenote for all you fabric-o-philes like me: I ventured to Target to check out the new “Liberty of London for Target”  line this morning.  It didn’t impress me (and I LOVE Liberty’s Tana Lawn).  The prints were just OK .  I  didn’t see anything that was so great that I’d want to spend my money on it.  Maybe I thrift shop so much now that I am unable to be fazed by any of the  imported junk that fills our stores.
