Green swap

I received my swap package (swap organised by Emma and Rachael at That little bit greener) from my partner Emilie over at The French Frog Touch last week - and this is what it contained:

A lovely selection of goodies including a CD - Emilie is obviously a talented singer too!

Such a pretty sachet tied with crochet lace and wooden beads and containing a piece of the rose striped fabric for me to use in my patchwork.

Another pretty printed sachet.

A recycled paper notebook - the sheets are squared in the way French notbooks always are and which seems so much nice than boring lines as ours are! And such a pretty card with my name on it - I love the French script especially the J and will frame this and hang it on my wall.

And as I had just made a cup of tea when the postman arrived these lovely biscuits were opened and sampled at once!

Thank you so much Emilie.

Must dash now as I can hear my visitors are surfacing and will be wanting some breakfast - hope to catch up with you all again before too long!
