I participated in Clasheen's handmade Summer swap, and received delightful goodies from Chrissie Galley. She shall receive my goody bag next week (though I gather from her blog that she is away somewhere truly beautiful until mid-month). Chrissie spoilt me rotten, I must say: at first all I could see was a muslin bag tied up with string, and at each end of the string a small moss-green and lavender felt heart.
Inside the bag, lo and behold! (excuse flowery language, for I was truly impressed): little packages wrapped in old clothes pattern tissue paper, and a sweet little box. Oh, what to open first....Tis truly a daft question. The box, of course!
Which contained treasures: small snapshots, a felted acorn beautifully life-like, lots of tiny paper hearts and one ceramic heart, and an old British coin should one just happen to find oneself walking in-between-the-linings of time and wind up in a sweet shop (hopefully just after rationing stopped).
There was, also, a hand-made felt brooch
Gift tags and a small note-book handprinted by SORT
But, hold your breath, for I have not yet finished. This amazing woman also included a hand-made felt bag in navy blue.
If you love her stuff, pop over and feast your eyes further at her etsy shop. I must dash as I have rather a lot of spoling to hand-make and post in return!
