My swap with Mel….

Last year at our girl’s retreat Mel and I fell in love with a basket that Annie had made and was going to frog as she didn’t like it and Mel and I decided it was too lovely to rip out so we commandeered it and claimed it for ourselves but then we had a problem of who would get to keep it and we came up with the clever solution that we would share it and at each get together we’d fill the basket with goodies either bought or handmade and pass it on and thus our one on one swap  began Smile

this time is was my turn to be spoilt by Mel, look at all these yummy goodies displayed so beautifully in our basket….I think Mel has an inkling I like lady bugs lol.

Lady bug mini wall hanging, lady bug pin cushion, lady bug chocolates, stickers, fabric, ribbon, pegs  and to top it of the most gorgeous hand stitched lady bug necklace!! below is a picture of me wearing it…. I love it!!

Now to get my thinking cap on with ideas to fill up the basket with goodies for Mel. I am so glad I took up blogging as I’ve made some really lovely friends through it Smile
