I have had such an amazing day today! Enjoying the glorious sunny weather, having fun with my children, and then to top it all off really nicely, I received this parcel:
This parcel was sent to me by the lovely Lizzie from A House in the Country. Lizzie is my partner for the F.R.I.E.N.D.S swap hosted by Sew Prim Khris.
The idea was that each partner would create or gift an item, the name of which would begin with each letter making up the word FRIENDS. Seven gifts in total... and a fantastic opportunity to make a new friend and find out what makes them tick. :-)
I took these photos after each individual parcel was unwrapped... The pictures do the talking - literally!! :-)
Oh OK... I have to speak here!!! Isn't this needle case beautiful? Lizzie created it with her own fair hands! I LOVE IT!
It is unusual for me to be lost for words... but when I opened my parcel it took me some time to be able to find the right ones to thank Lizzie. I was overwhelmed! Her gifts are "me", with favourites (including tea, miniature teddies, chocolate orange and lavender hand cream) that I wonder how she could have known about? I feel humbled, and most of all, very nourished... to have received the love and thoughtfulness that Lizzie has so obviously put into her gifts for me.
Thank you Lizzie for everything! I look forward to our continuing, heart-warming friendship.
And thank you Khris, for hosting such a spiritually-rewarding swap!
Until next time... cherish the moment! :-)
