Swap items for Leah

My Swap Partner Leah was finally able to pick up her Love Day Swap package at the post office a few days ago.  I am so glad she was finally able to get to the post office, Leah lives in Canada right on the NY border and they got a ton of snow last week. One day she said she had to shovel her way into the driveway-- I just cant imagine dealing with that amount of snow.

Ok, on to the fun stuff....

I used a hot pink and black color scheme for everything I sent Leah.  Leah & her hubby are newly weds and she said they didn't have too many valentine's day decorations so I thought it would be fun to send her things for their home.  Here is what I sent her...

A pennant banner which was real difficult to photograph-- it spans about 60 inches.  The pennants are reversible.  The second item was a set of four stipple quilted coasters in the same fabrics.  The next item was a pot holder and dishtowel set.  I cheated on this, purchased a plain set and just added the heart and personalization, ribbon and ricrac.  I had never done a pot holder before and probably won't do it again, I broke four needles just getting the name embroidered--- never again!  The fourth item was a little personalized bathroom fingertip towel and the last item was an embroidered blanket.

I also included some freebies from work, a book she could read to her neices and a card.  She raved about the stuff in her thank you message and that made it all worthwhile.  Thanks Bonnie at Pink Stitches for hosting a great swap. 

Thanks for stopping by!
