I recently participated in the F-R-I-E-N-D-S swap where we were assigned a partner and we had to swap 7 gifts, one for each letter of the word. My partner was Debbie from Canada, and this was how she handled the challenge! (It was a bit overwhelming to get all these gifts! ) Thanks so much Debbie for going to so much trouble to put these together for me. It was really interesting to see if we matched any of the items.
F: a flower hot pad and a face mask, (just what a tired student will need, will save until exam time!!)
R: rick rack, ribbon and a recipe book full of chocolate recipes! (also good for tired students)
I: indigo coloured fabric and ribbon with inches marked on it! (great for students when not doing student things!)
E: some lovely embroidery and some earrings, (a feminine touch for the drab student who studies in slouchy track pants and sweatshirts!)
N: some needle pullers, a hanky for the Nose and a very cute notebook. (all ideal for the student who likes to do a bit of stitching)
D: some lemon drink sachets, a dip mix and a pretty cool doily, (stored, going and gone!)
S: a lovely souvenir tea towel from Canada, a pot scrubber, a strawberry huller and a gorgeous sewing kit! (for the spoilt student!)
And then Debbie added a few extras which was so kind of her considering she must have had to mortage the house to be able to afford the darn postage! LOL
Although I loved everything!!!! This wee thimble was my favourite thing, don't you think it's totally gorgeous?
And so too was the lovely tissue paper it was all wrapped in. Thanks again Debbie, and I hope this is the beginning of a great friendship!
