Excited …….. Fit to burst!

Well I’m finally part of a sewing swap and when I pulled myself out of my bed this morning I rushed for the ipad thinking oooo I wonder who I’ve got? Somewhere exotic like…mmmmm CHESTER.  That’s a lovely, historic place. Maybe my swap partner lives all the way up North. Now I hasten to add at this point I am lovingly known in my household as Mrs Menopausal Mauve, only because I have got a bit forgetful, occassionally repeat myself and in the next breath deny ever having said anything. Oh and I’m getting near there age wise BUT I’m a busy lady like all of our species, being all things to all people so I rest my case. I’m a bit confused sometimes.

Back to the point (see what I mean). Having entered my details into the swap I thought no more other than how exciting it felt. Well it just got loads more exciting! My swap partner lives in ….. wait for it …… The U S of A!!!! OMG!

Now I feel the pressure of not letting my fellow Blighty swappers down so have had my thinking cap on all day. All other tasks have failed to reach outcome due to the importance of my getting my first swap right.

In the spirit of the swap I must now gaffer tape my mouth shut and keep it all secret squirrel, but be assurred as soon as I can I will be posting my pictures of items destined for my American swap cousin.
