I feel really spoiled with so many items in the bag! There was even a great black and white card to go with all the goodies! No piccy of the chocolates but.........no I haven't eaten it! It is still in the fridge as it is quite warm up here in North Queensland and I needed to firm it up first! Might have it for dessert tonight, and I will probably have to share half with Mr B. He certainly loves his chocolate! Thanks Barb for being my swap partner and really spoiling me in my first swap!
I spent the morning today visiting with family which is always entertaining to say the least and this afternoon I got stuck into a corner of the garden where it had become a little overgrown. Lucky you couldn't hear me as there are a few green ants in the shrubs and they bit me in the most unlikely places, like behind the knees and under the arm (you know the nice soft bits) and there were a few choice words coming from me as I tried to pick them off. I know they are only trying to protect themselves and their nests but I really needed to prune and move a couple of things.
I like to sit here and sew in the afternoon or early morning when it is cool, but because we have had a good wet season last year this corner needed some attention!
I had to scrub the chairs and table (although I think I needed to use a brush to get it all off) and when I was finished I thought it would be nice to take some photos of my swap goodies here.
I have also finished the Dresden Plates for my runner.......mind you I haven't done anything else yet, but my daughter did design the runner for me and she has four of them (whereas I was only going to have three) so I will have to cut out another 12 sections.
Mr B and I am off to the movies tomorrow to take the 3 grandchildren to see Hotel Transylvania so not much stitching will be getting done.
