Playing catch up...

I've been so tied up with hospital runs just lately, that everything else has had to take a back seat......I have to send out my Easter swap to Amanda, and her blog can be found  here . She has been very patient with me, and I received her swap last week.  I was surprised how many lovely goodies she managed to fit in to the tub!!
 Amanda called this 'Muggaducky' and I think he's really cute, and he now sits on top of my computer screen to keep the little Toy Story Martian company!!
 This is the package....
And these two pics are the contents!  The chocolate has now been eaten, and very nice it was too!!
The purse was handmade, as was the broach attached to it (I put it on there, as I thought it matched well!!) and the crochet shopping bag stretches quite a lot!! The bowl is perfect for olives (one of my favourite snacks!) and I'm saving the gel candles for the summer in the garden, if we get a summer that is!!

My package to Amanda will be sent out tomorrow, and I'll wait until she receives it before giving anything away!   Now I'm off to have a nice cup of Lime Blossom tea, also included in the package!! Thanks Amanda!!

  4. Hi Debi,
    Muggaducky looks as if he has settled in well.....he obviously likes it there with you.
    Glad you liked all the swap bits and pieces. The purse was hard work I don't think I'll be making many very often. I'll stick to me crochet!

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  5. What a great selection to receive. I especially love the little duck, I bet you smile everytime you look at him :))

  6. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just
    curious if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you prevent
    it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.
