YAY!!!! my Swap finally arrived

40 days it took

40 long days
it's now with my Swap Partner

This is what my Swap partner, Abby, made for me. I was so caught up with my parcel going astray, staying overnight in Sydney, the Quilt Show, being behind in sewing, children, dreary rainy days, that I kept putting off taking and therefore posting pictures.

Isn't it fab
Abby did a great job, and I love the quote.
It's something I forget sometimes.

I've learnt a lot about swaps, and swap etiquette in the past few weeks.
I've also been reminded, not personally, about writing and receiving emails. I must be one of the few people left, who chooses, not to have a mobile phone. So I don't always get text-speak, and the seemingly shortness of communication. I mean it took me weeks to work out what "lol" meant! I think it might come from loving books, sooooo much. I've been transported by books ever since a could read, I get caught up and thoroughly immerse myself in a story. So, I think I love words, and putting words together. I see it as an art, rather than just communication. Hmmm, I feel a novel coming on, so I'll stop right here! lol!

Cheerio for now
X Mandy
