The full picture...

Remember this?


And this?


Well now I can reveal all, as they have now arrived with their rightful owner!

This secret partner was a sneeky madam!   I will obviously forgive her, as the goodies I received from her were totally wonderful, and the reason why I did not think for a second that she was making for me too!!  Now you can see why I couldn't show you more, if we were all going to have a surprise, it only seemed fair that I should repay the compliment.

So we have an Echino mug rug, as I was going for the all things bright and beautiful theme as requested, I am not a total loose cannon!  The x&+ block is one of my absolute favourites, so it seemed befitting...



The 'goodie' was not so much about the colours but the Froggy Prince, as my stalkerly ways/elephant brain remembered that this lovely lady loves frogs!  The angst waiting for the fabric to arrive from the US of A was tortuous!


Anywho, a mini 241 Tote in Tula Pink's Prince Charming was the outcome!


As soon as I saw this post I knew a 'mini' would be a great goodie gift some day!


I may have also popped in a brooch and a few other goodies in the cornflake box for our wonderful swap mama, because without her, there would have been no swap!!


Thank you Cindy for being so great to make for!  I am so happy that you are so happy!

Partner 2 where are you?  Or rather, where is your parcel?  Judging by other's postal times, it should be with you any day now, so keep stalking that postman!
