The original exchange from Yasmin showed up in my mailbox, totally safe and sound. The envelope was in great shape, the address was written absolutely perfectly, and Customs did not open the envelope... it was probably just lost behind a counter, in a drawer or some such thing in some part of the postal service all this time! What a treat to get this - I just adore it! Thank you Yasmin!! (Aren't you just totally relieved now??).
I am participating this year in the Crazy Exchange Birthday Exchange, and I was assigned to send to a lovely quilter in The Netherlands, Caro. I was thrilled to get Caro's name. She sent me the loveliest Christmas quilt wall hanging for the Christmas Exchange last year! Now it was my turn - I chose to send her something using my craft (cross stitch) that she can use for her craft (quilting) - the end result is this pincushion:
Then I visited my local Joann Fabric Store and picked up little doo dads that a quilter would enjoy - red fabrics, thimbles and betweens needles... and some yummy Estee Lauder lotion too. I received such a sweet email from Caro today - you are so welcome Caro, and so glad you like your gifts! Happy Birthday :-)
