Quick note

I forgot to also mention to visit Nancy's blog, she has received the rescue package I sent for the Advent Swap after her partner failed to deliver.  We don't know what has happened in this lady's life to prevent her from fullfilling her promise but I would like to see her return Nancy's goods.

This message is to everyone "If signing up for swaps read the terms and conditions before committing!"

Jo,
That was really sweet of you to do that for her! I was in a secret pal thing for 2009, supposed to get 13 packages, 1/month and a birthday present. Well, no one wants the details of how THAT came out. lol The swap mistress said that 2009 was the WORST YEAR EVER for dropouts and no-shows. What can I say? We blamed the economy.

Anyway, your gifts to her looked lovely. 8)

All the best,
Susan

Jo, what a sweetie you are. Honestly that stocking would have taken me ages to embroider, not to mention the pincushion and bag. I was wondering if you uses a pattern for the bag and if you don't mind me asking what it was. Thanks Deb.

Hi Deb,
The bag is a pattern by Rosalie Quinlan called Nellie's bag and I used weaveline behind the stitcheries on the earlier post. It's nice to work with.
Cheers
Jo

I haven't been in many swaps for years as I always seem to miss out.. but I went in one for Christmas and received gorgeous things and then I had the swap with you and I love my tote... my faith is being restored.. you are very kind to send in place of that person who dropped out.....
