SSCS 2011

The only swap I have taken part in this year is Chookyblues SSCS. This is my 3rd year (maybe 4th?)  taking part and once again I have been blown away my the talent and generosity of bloggers. My partner that I received from this year was Shauna from from Canada. I did not know her before but have certainly made a new blogging friend.
What a parcel!!!
I received a beautiful quilted table topper, I will get so much enjoyment using it both during the festive season and during the year. It is gorgeous and I have the perfect place for it.
I also got 2 knitted dishcloths, hard to see in the photo but a beautiful yarn, red,white and gold.
I also got a lovely bread board with a  recipe for Friendship on it. I will enjoy using it and remembering my special blogging friends while doing so.

I knew Shauna did some digital scrapbooking but wow she is clever!!! I received a 'favorite recipe' book to keep all my 'special' recipes in. It is personalised for me and the first recipe in there is very special as it is Shauna's favorite family recipe. I can't wait to try it. 'Chocolate chippers' - sure it will go down a treat in our home!!!

Thank you so much Shauna for an amazing gift, I was so spoilt and love each and every bit of it!!!
A huge thank you to elf Chooky for once again hosting this swap, you do an amazing job and it is really appreciated, can't wait till next year!!!
