My Swap Package!

All the way from the Dakotas; the south one!! 
I participated in Robin from Baggaraggs' Supply Swap. She did a Round Robin and Natalie from TINS AND TREASURES got my name. WOW!! Was I a lucky Gal?!!!
I opened my large parcel and found scraps of natural batting. She said her class (she's a teacher!) had all of these scraps left over from making a quilt and they were going to toss them. So she decided to put them in my box as a packing aid in hopes that I could use them and, BY GOLLY, I CAN!!! Perfect for my Snowman and Santa patterns I'm doing this year!
Everything was wrapped and tied with items that I could also use. Nothing goes to waste in this package!
Lovely coordinated fabrics, buttons, pom poms, hooks & eyes and other notions, straw hats, yarn, a large container of Cinnamon, sweet treats for the Twins; a WONDERFUL variety of materials that I can definitely use! Thank you SOOOOOO much, Natalie! 
What a fantastic package you put together for me! I feel so VERY spoiled!
Thank YOU, again!!

Good Morning, Vicky,
I am so glad to hear that the swap package reached you and that you will be able to use everything. It was fun to coordinate each little bundle!

I can't wait to spend some more time in my studio...I have plenty more supplies at home here and lots of ideas...just not enough time!

Have a creative Wednesday ~Natalie
