I recently took part in my first ever stitching exchange ~ a Tea Party/Picnic Exchange hosted by Lainey ~ and was thrilled to bits with the goodies my secret exchange partner Catherine from sent me.

The exchange was to include a stitched item with a tea party/picnic theme, a recipe suitable for the same occasion and 5 other items . . . . .

I was really good and waited until my secret partner was revealed before opening the tempting bag of treats and when I did just look at what was inside . . . .

Catherine had given so much thought to what to send me ~ she couldn't have chosen better!  All my favourite things listed on my homepage were included ~ a beautifully stitched and framed bunny, a strawberry design pillow, a burgundy gingham tea towel, 20, yes 20 gorgeous shades of DMC threads, 2 adorable bunny fabrics, fruity magnetic notepads and a recipe for a hot milk sponge cake which Catherine recommends eating with strawberries and whipped cream . . . . . very naughty but definitely one to try out real soon!!! 

Such a pretty and beautifully stitched pillow with a heart charm attached with little pink beads

How cute is this?  A little bunny with flowers which Catherine took from a Homespun Elegance 'Welcome' design ~ love it xxx

Thank you Catherine so much, I appreciate the time and thought you put into my package and I feel very lucky to have been your secret partner.  Thank you also to Lainey for the considerable time and effort it takes to organise us scatty stitchers to follow the rules and get our packages sent out on time.  I'm hoping my secret partner who I sent to will post some piccies soon, if not I'll show some next time.

Thank you for stopping by
