City Crafter Lace and Doily Swap ...

I started back at Practical Philosophy last night ... then woke up to a beautiful sunny morning ... but my day just got even better .. the Postman just brought me a package from my swap partner .. Chriss Blagrave ... all the way from Austin Texas ... heck the closest I'd ever got to Austin Texas was watching films and now here I am receiving beautiful gifts from someone who lives there!! 
And my oh! my what beautiful things I got ... together with a gorgeous handmade card (sigh) ... have a peek ...



What a beautiful doily and cupcake



Fabulous hey? 


Even little felt coasters


How fabulous is that vintage doily? just like my Swiss Nana used to make ...



And another oh so delicate vintage doily ... a doily stamp and paper doilies ...
Chriss I am so grateful for your kindness and generosity ... and a big thank you too - to Kirsty for organising this fun event.
Back soon

Hola Ros ! Lovely goodies :D I can imagine all the nice things you're going to create with them. I've been very busy at work and not being able to visit the blogs I like as often as I would like. But thanks a lot for your sweet comment on my recent work it was really nice to read it.
