Goodie Swap Package 2

I received my second mug rug and goodie package 
from Linda.
I love it!
I was hoping I was going to get one of these thread catchers.
And let me tell you,
I started using is ASAP.
It's so much nicer then throwing the threads on the floor and sweeping them up later.

Thank you SO much, Linda for such a thoughtful package.
There was the CUTE cupcake mug rug,
a beautiful fat quarter
two thread catchers,
a needle case,
(thank you!  I needed one!)
and an Ireland calender.
(which I LOVE)
Ireland is on my bucket list
and these pictures make me want to get there FAST!

Did I win the jackpot or what?
I had two wonderful partners to send to, 
along with receiving from 2 amazing partners.
It was the perfect swap.

So, I got to thinking,
"what am I going to do with all of these wonderful swap gifts?"
So I decided to use my sewing room wall
to help display them.
I didn't want to store them away.
I wanted to see them all the time!

So here's to the beginning of a beautiful, growing collection from all over the world.
From the USA I  have Alabama & Illinois covered.
From other countries I now have Denmark, Ireland & Australia.
All this just makes my heart swell.

I have two things coming up this week, so make sure to keep a look out.
I have an awesome new recipe to post

Sure am!
I have been so blessed to win some pretty nice things from other blogger giveaways
that it's time for me to pass it on.

Stay tuned!
