Back in February (before my world turned upside down), I posted about the Whimsical Woodland Mug Rug Swap and showed you the parcel that I sent to my swap buddy - Louisa Watts. Today it gives me great pleasure to finally share with you the amazing parcel of awesomeness that I received from the super wonderful Karley from Canada @krrley back in February.
To refresh your memory - in this swap we were required to create a Woodland themed mug rug for our partner and to include a few extra goodies to the retail value of USD10.00 These were to follow the theme of the swap.
Firstly this is the inspiration mosaic that I posted for this swap. I chose the squirrel as my preferred woodlands animal and advised my partner that although I knew that I would be receiving a mug rug in the swap, instead of using it to sit my tea or coffee on, I would be hanging it up in my sewing room, so they were welcome to make a miniature mini quilt of mug rug dimensions.
Before I show you what was IN the parcel, these are the teasers that Karley had posted on Instagram. (Instagram photos reproduced with Karley's permission)
And this is what arrived:
|This blew me away when I saw it. Karley's young daughter was given free reign to decorate the parcel with hedgehog stickers. I managed to save most of them and have stuck them onto one of the display shelves in my sewing room.|

|Strawberry Sugar hand & body cream, - it smells divine!!!|
|A maple cream chocolate from Canada & it was yummy!|
|A cute little hand made squirrel plush toy.|
|A foxy gift card.|
I absolutely love all of the goodies that Karley so kindly sent me, I'm just saddened that it has taken me so long to share it all with you.

I have since completed and received a number of other swaps which I will endeavour to share with you over the coming weeks.
