stitch swap: extra goodies
We're closing in on the end of the Stitch Swap, and I thought it would be fun to do a post dedicated to the extra goodies that are so much fun to send and receive with something like this.
With my hoop (which shall be mailed in the next few days!) I'm including some of my favorite loose tea, an eraser from the Japanese market, and some embroidery floss. There might also be an extra surprise for my swapee (someone used that term in a posting, and I loved it!)...
In with the hoop I received, there were so many goodies...I feel quite loved! Chocolate, a fat quarter, embroidery floss and a handmade pincushion!
Speaking of handmade, take a look at these extra treats that people have made to include with their swap packages:
Yes, the Buzz Lightyear is an extra...not even the regular hoop! And I'm a huge fan of those zippy pouches. Oh, but all of these are delightful, and made with such care. And I'd like to point out that participants aren't expected to add these things in. They are invited to, if they want...that makes these little gifts even more impressive to me!
I'm so excited to be watching everyone's work coming together and getting ready to be sent!
