FHFS – It Sure Is!

Posted on | April 6, 2014 | 14 Comments

For the first time ever I have participated in an on-line swap.  The group is FHFS – Friends Having Fun Swap.

Our first challenge is an item with a Dresden plate.

My swap partner , Keryn of  Christmas Creations, is very organised and my parcel has arrived!! When I opened it I was speechless – which is very odd for me.

Have a look at what I first saw when I opened it!

Can you see that gorgeous Easter Bunny in the middle?

Here’s a close up. Isn’t she wonderful!

But, hang on you say! That’s not a Dresden plate.

Next I opened the square parcel tied with a ribbon.  Now I don’t know how the smile on my face could get any bigger, but it did when I saw this.

Look at those tiny little pieces in the Dresden!

Have a peek from the side, too.

Beautiful fabrics and beautifully made.

Keryn, this is the most delightful pin cushion I have seen.

How can I stick pins in it? And Keryn even supplied some pins for me.

Yes, there are many other goodies in the parcel.

Lots of lovely Easter treats and some sewing goodies as well. All greatly appreciated.

I can’t believe how lucky I have been to have Keryn as my partner in this first swap.

Thank you for your beautiful gifts and your kindness and generosity.

While I just sit here and look at all these treasures, I’ll give you another peek at my Easter Bunny.
