Today was supposed to be my grand final Sweet Pouch Swap post sharing the goodies I sent to my partner, and what she sent to me. Except all the photos are on my phone and on my laptop… both of which have currently just taken off from Narita International Airport on their way to America! My husband and I swapped phones as his iPhone’s wifi broke with the iOS5 update (a common problem – some were just lemons) and my laptop is small, light and has a great battery life. So alas, we will have to wait until next Friday and put up with this photo off Instagram of what I was sent – a beautiful, little Bonnie & Camille bag, with a Fandango 2.5″ x 5″ charm pack, 2.5″ pack of a very old Bonnie & Camille line, a necklace and some seaglass! At the time of the photo, the chocolates were re-setting in the fridge, but very delicious Cadbury Caramello and a Roasted Almond, and, dark salted caramel Ghiradelli’s! I love Ghiradelli’s chocolates, and it’s the fault of quilting swaps!! Last Christmas in swap, I was sent their Peppermint Bark… Oh. So. Good!!!
Talking of which, dear American readers, is this flavour available year-round or only at Christmas?? Also, tell me your favourite modern American quilting magazines easily available in shops for my husband to try and find for me! He left with a big suitcase barely half full, and I intend on helping him return with a much fuller, heavier suitcase. A couple of shopping orders already on their way to his hotel will certainly help!
