Package arrived, mysteries revealed...

Chrissie from The Grace Space left a note today to say my swap parcel had arrived safely so I can now unveil the Swap Mysteries (and all the other goodies I sent her)

In her swap questionnaire Chrissie said she liked purples, yellows, lime green, & turquoise. She had just started collecting softies, loved and collected mermaids, birds, peacocks already. She enjoys quilting, loves chocolate and is about to have a baby girl to join her two sons.(Top to bottom left(ish) to right(ish):
  1. 3 second-hand pillowcases to use for patchwork plus 1 metre of pink, lime green and yellow denim (might make a cute baby overall or carry bag?)

  3. Australian children's book: No mermaids here
  4. Vintage 1950s flamingo picture
  5. Second-hand pink scarf with green and blue stripes
  6. (Swap Mystery number 3) Second-hand pop up book: The secret mermaid handbook
  7. (Swap Mystery number 2) Pre loved bunny softie who followed me home one day - he declared, since he was a Canberra bunny, his name was Walter. Walter Bunny Griffin.
