What a surprise I got when I opened the card and a cheque fell out, now as you regular swappies will appreciate it is not normal practice to send hard cash out with swaps! It took my little brain a few moments to compute that this was not my swap.
What it was in fact was a pressie from the lovely Lace Threads, now this was a total surprise as all I did was sell her a duvet cover, hence the cheque. She made me a fantastic fabric bucket, and I have had them on my 'to do' list for ages (OH did prance around the kitchen with it on his head saying the hat was to small for him!) and a cute bookmark that is already in use.
I had a smile on my face all day thinking of her kindness, well most of the day as I was quite frustrated for parts of it as I spent ages taking creative pictures of the bits i want to sell and then loading the stuff onto Folksy and etsy and setting up the shops. - (any feedback on the items, prices etc would be appreciated.)
So thank you Lace for making my day
