The January Mini Fabric Sampler Swap

One down, 11 to go! We've completed the first month of our year-long swap over on my swap blog, A Swap For All Seasons. The first picture is the fabric sampler that I made for Pam.

The second picture is the bea-u-ti-ful sampler (with a matching tag) that I received from Jan in the UK. I absolutely LOVE it! From the sweet baby to the hand-stitched shoes, it is just perfect!

Jan also sent along a few pretties (the 3rd picture) which was so very sweet! She included a note on her very own postcard- created with a photo of one of her creations, a few of her favorite things, and a quote- so cool! It was all wrapped so nicely and the package from the UK had the "Royal Mail" stamp on the outside, which I always love. The contents definitely lived up to the term! Thank you so much!

The last picture is a lovely hostess gift that was sent to me from Elizabeth. She is a member of the swap group and truly one of the dearest people! She sends little thoughtful gifts to me throughout the year, and they mean so very much to me. They have often cheered up an otherwise a dreary day. I love the "L" buttons and the lace is gorgeous! She really has a knack for packaging too- always such a treat to open. Elizabeth, you are a blessing!

Oh Linda,
How beautiful. I am so enjoying the mimi quilt swaps.
I am so happy you like the buttons and lace. When I seen the button they just called out your name. LOL I know you are the button lady. :)
