Last month was a huge swap month for me. Beside the regular swap, I also made a lot of personal ones, so while I was away a lot of packages arrived at the house full of awesome things... So this post is to show everything off, and to say a big Thank You to all the girls who sent me these wonderful things .. girls, you're all amazing :)
I sent Jessica some Lili&Lala items and a few Portuguese fabrics, and in return she sent me such gorgeous fabrics and other goodies
I sent Lisa some Portuguese bamboo yarn for her to try out and my first quilted bag (which she enjoyed, so I'm really happy !) and she sent me some sock yarn (love the koigu !) and this lovely tea (the tin ... isn't it cute?)
as part of the magazine swap, hosted by Adriana. Vanessa is a very talented knitter (just look at this sweater, isn't it amazing ?) and she sent me two great magazines that I can't wait to start browsing.
from Siow Chin
Siow Chin said she'd like to try a few Portuguese chitas, so I offered to send her some ... and in return she sent me another lovely japanese sewing book and this women's sewing magazine (check her blog for photos of this latest one)
something more I brought from Brazil, my personal swap from Glá, this delicious quilted bag, featuring both Sushi and Amélie ;)
and finally, from Vydia, my July color-iffic-swaporama package :) Vydia was an excellent secret pal and she spoiled me rotten. Just look at all the things she sent ...
