Valentine Swap

When I opened the second package that I received the other day, this is what I saw:

(Isn’t there something encouraging about seeing valentines addressed specifically to you?)

Our Valentine Three-inchey Swap hostess, Jeanelle, really outdid herself and I savored unpacking the box, finding goody after goody.

First, Jeanelle’s contribution was peeking from her envelope. (And here I should probably mention that I photographed these nestled in the pink tissue paper in which they arrived, so the colors appear rosier than in real life. If you want to see some more-true-to-life photos, check out Laurie’s blog.)

I just love this!

Mollie’s was also “peeking” through the envelope.

(And, I found this little gal in Mollie’s envelope, too.)

This awesome woven ribbon heart was from Jami.

Eeps! I love the colors. And I wish you could feel the ribbon!

Connie contributed this wonderful crazy quilt square. (Learning to make a crazy quilt has LONG been on my to-do list, so I am appreciating this technique.)

Can you see that the central piece is filled? And what about those roses?

And what was in Lynn’s envelope?

This little feast-for-the-eyes! (Every time I look, I see something new.)

Laurie’s little package held…

Can anyone resist Mr. Darcy? Certainly not I!

I almost hated to break the seal on Tammy’s envelope.

But I’m glad I did because this is what I found (in addition to some Dove chocolate)!

And to top it all off, Jeanelle added more Dove chocolates, a vintage valentine AND this fabulous fabric book in which to display our treasures:

What a special treat! I can’t wait to participate in the next swap.
