Greetings, dear readers!

Just a quick post to keep with a previous committment: the Surprise Spring Swap from the Dutch Sisters!

Remember this? I was SO EXCITED to find out that my swap partner lives in France! WOOHOO! I am THRILLED to send to her the special packages I've assembled:

So what's in said packages? Well that must remain a secret until my swap partner receives her gifts! Here are the requirements for the swap: 

1. Find your two most beautiful spring fabrics and
 cut of a fat quarter from each fabric. see this link
2. Make a lovely spring gift.
You can sew, knit, crochet, felt, embroider it!
It can be a anything as long as it is very pretty!
A little bird, a heart, a little doll, a small mini quilt, a house etc..
Wrap it up all pretty, and write a nice note to send with it because...
we believe notes make things extra nice!

make your gift so very special you almost want to keep it yourself!
The lovely gift and fabric has to fit and be send in a large envelope.
This is it nothing more nothing less.
Parcels must be sent on or before 21st March !
So there you have KNOW what I sent...or DO you? Photos as soon as I'm sure Michaja has her goodies in hand!
Back to your regularly scheduled Lenten silence...

Hugs and kisses!
Paula Clare

Paula, I didn't think we'd see you til after Lent was over! I wanted to tell you thank you for the cute gnome tag! It arrived a couple of days ago!
Looking forward to your return to blogdom after Easter, so you can share what you made and what you received in the spring surprise swap!

Your gifts are so beautiful wrapped and I love your gnome tags! I'm so curious what's in it!

Ha...will you look at that Easter Schnauzer on your side bar. Made me laugh! I love the gnome card you gave me so much. It's in my kitchen window. I'm involved in a bunny very first and I'm having a blast with it! Please pray for Jan if you will who is hurting so bad from hand surgery. She is a fellow blogger and artist. Thank you dear Paula Clare!
