Birthday Swap

I have reeeived all five packages I'm expecting for my turn in the birthday swap.  I saved them to open on my birthday and the reveal was so fun!  My husband and kids watched me open each one.

First is a package from Tara.  There is an adorable strawberry mini, the pattern to make the full size quilt, some Aurifil, Riley Blake buttons, a Frixion pen, two pink thread/bobbin things (I'm excited these are flexible because I think my Bernina bobbins will actually fit on them!), and some Bonnie & Camille Handmade fabric!!
Next is a package from Ange.  It came all the way from Australia and I've been saving it for most of the month.  It was so tough not to just rip into it!  She made me this lovely butterfly zipper pouch. It was stuffed full of all the goodies pictured--two washi tapes, some cupcake twill ribbon, a package of mini clothespins, two fat quarters that have a marvelous hand, and the pad of paper to the right.  It has three different styles of paper inside--the one pictured, a shopping list, and a weekly planner.

I also received this wonderful package from Rebecca.  She got so many of the things I love.  She made me a beautiful mini quilt.  And wrapped some of the things in the pineapple paper (I love pineapples.  And strawberries and cherries and apples and pears and blueberries.)  There is some Hello Darling mini charms, pencils in some of my favorite colors, little clothespins with the days of the week, Jelly Bellies, Lemonheads, a pretty notebook, and a little card with a quote from J.K. Rowling.

This one came from Jennifer in Germany.  She made me a little fabric basket, a pincushion, and a pencil case and included some "cake" and also some pencils, ruler, eraser, and sharpener.  The little basket is the perfect size for charm squares.  My kids are getting a kick out of the ruler being in centimeters.
 Such bright, cheerful colors.
The last package is from Tanya.  Not gonna lie, I've been looking forward to the mascara all year!  She made me a table runner and included a table runner book, some thread, a mini charm pack, some hexi papers, fabric glue sticks, sewing pins, mechanical pencils, and a really cool pin.  It's hard to see, but the pin says "rockin' my sew-jo!".  And it was all in the cool pink bubble mailer at the bottom left.

I'm so glad I was the last one in this swap.  I've received some wonderful things and it's just a great way to finish off this swap.
