Oh boy was I in for a surprise when I arrived home today...my Halloween swap parcel was in the kitchen waiting for me. I was so excited, but manageds to contain myself whilst I photographed the picture on the outside of the box.
And then the contents before unwrapping, except of course for the gorgeous girl in the middle. Everything was beautifully wrapped in black and orange netting and tied with yummy ribbon. It was such a treat opening up each one. And look what was waiting for me....
Now she really is something else, and will be the star attraction at I's Halloween party at the end of the month.
The above table runner is gorgeous, the camera just doesn't do it the justice it deserves. All around the oustside are tiny black beads...so lovely, and such a lot of work.
Now, all you ladies out there really should have a go at swaps. They are such fun. All right, so you have to make a parcel up yourself, but what fun when you receive your half of the bargain. If you click on the icon for the vintage christmas swap you can sign up and have a go yourselves. I can thoroughly recommend it!
