The most recent swap was a christmas decoration and handmade letter swap. My lovely swap partner was Twinset Jan from Pennsylvania and it was so lovely to arrive home one night to an amazing parcel full of goodies. She had needle felted me 2 little bunnies who look exactly like the gingerbread bunnies, Hansel and Gretel! They now have pride of place on my tree and will most definitley be coming out every year.

Also in the parcel was a lovely letter, some Herseys chocolate (as this is made in the State where she lives), a packet of mocha mix - which is delicious, and a skien of sock yarn which is the most beautiful blue and has cashmere in it making it smoochingly soft and snuggly.

I can report that she has received her package from me complete with a felt owl and a felt robbin decoration and other lovely goodies for her to enjoy.
Swapping is a great way to receive 'nice' mail and I love spending time choosing things to put in my parcel and making items for it to.
The next swap has already been announced - dishcloth and recipe swap with an 'unwanted' christmas gift that you can pass on to a loving home. If you fancy getting involved, pop over to Ravelry and join the Caithness Craft Collective Group.
