Swaps, shopping, and prezzies............

The gorgeous Chez aka Dory gave all the girls on her table a little present..............

(right pic borrowed from Kerri)
On Friday night the bloggers had a swap..............I did 2 swaps.........I knew JoJo - Dzintras daughter wanted to join in so I did a swap between us.........it was fun getting a parcel together for her.........
This is what I got from JoJo............
The swap was the same as what we have done at the Bathurst Blog meets
Make it (handmade goodness)
Fake it (too busy so you buy a present)
Bake it (cooking etc)
I received from Shez..............she faked it but also made something..........bit of a mix......
a slice tray, cookie cutter and one of her wonderful hand towels
I had actually paid Kerry too much money for GDITC soI had some spending money and I got this jelly roll book I have been eyeing off for quite some time.............and a bit of Anni Downs fabric.............
guess who scored the left over lemon slice from Shez...............lucky me.........
some fabrics from a couple of besties..............thanks girls.........
This is a lovely parcel my friend Carole in the USA sent to me a little while ago...........but it's where all the troubles started with Kerri regarding the magazine......lol.......but thankfully a lady called Chris had a copy for her........thanks so much Chris...............
Catch you later

  14. I'm very belatedly catching up on all your GDITC posts, what a fun time had by all. Your swap gifties are lovely, and the new quilts of Lynette's that Kate made are gorgeous. Now I see you're counting down already for next year!
