My special swap with Shez!

I was utterly spoilt once again by my dear friend Shez, she knows me so well! Our theme for this swap was a Fig ‘n berry Christmas theme and if anyone knows me will know I love everything there is about Christmas!!

See I told you Shez spoilt me rotten! I think Shez knows me very well as she included a beautiful Christmas recipe book by Donna Hay which I have been hanging out to try a couple of the recipes out as well as a gorgeous felt candle mat, Fig ‘n berry  wall hanging, a cute Christmas tin full of yummy Christmas ribbons and a Fig ‘n berry pattern I actually don’t have in my pattern stash but must admit to nearly buying when I spotted it at Lisa’s table at the Geelong Quiltin last Saturday.

Here is a picture of what I gave to Shez, we decided as we’re both trying to cut out the lollies and chips we’d try and be a bit more inventive with what we add as little extras to our swap parcels so as well as the cute reindeer wall hanging I included three cottage garden threads, a yummy smelling soap, a soy candle from dusk as well as a special photo album cos I know Shez is just as crazy about Christmas as I am LOL and I thought this one would be a lovely one to put some special pic’s of her grandies into SmileI love these one on one swaps with my lovely friend Shez and I’m always totally blown away by what she makes me Smile

Hello Barb,

I would be leaving the lovely mat out all the time. Great idea to give the sugar based items out of the swap.

Have a great week.

Happy days.
Bev.
