Colour Swap Received

I got a lovely surprise in the mail today - My husband handed me a squishy parcel he had collected from the Post Office -"From Fish Creek" - he says "Where? I am thinking - never heard of it!!"
It was my Colour Swap goodies..... Oh how exciting - This is my first swap - so it hadn't hit me until today how much fun it is to get something unexpected.
Each parcel was wrapped with a little tag - Illene explained that as she lives in  small town - she couldn't get all purple paper...but she did use a fat quarter for one of the presents - so who am I to think badly of lack of purple paper??

Here they are:

and all this loveliness was revealed:

Edible:  A variety of purple chocolates (some are missing already...) and a little handmade 'do-dad' to keep them in - maybe I will have to keep refilling it??
Smelly:  Some lovely body lotion and a lavender sachet.

Room in House:  2 handmade towels - one embroidered
Personal:  - wow, a notebook with handmade cover and bookmark, a pen - with a decorated box, and the fat quarter.

Thanks so much Illene!!

This has been a lot of fun - thanks to Cheryll for organising this swap and I promise mine WILL be sent before the deadline...nearly done.
