Trick or Treat, No Tricks Just Treats!

It's been a very long time that I had done any swapping. Well I took my chances and participated in a Halloween Bag swap sponsored by Aunt Pitty Pat. My partner in the swap was Mary Grace McNamara from Hooked on Needles. In our package we had to include 3 Halloween fat quarters and thread to match them. We were to put in some kind of Halloween treat, some kind of notion, and something to decorate with. And of course a tote bag of somekind using what we had in our stash. This is the whole kit and kaboodle I sent Mary Grace. She received her loot on Thursday. I'm so glad she liked everything.
Look what I found on the front porch yesterday morning. OMG, my package from Mary Grace. She went above and beyond with her package. Look how cute she had everything wrapped. I couldn't wait to see what was in all those little packages. Let me show you.
She certianly took right good care of me.
What fun treasures. A darling tote bag with a drawstring opening. There were Halloween Dots, my fat quarters and thread. She threw in a spool of Halloween ribbon, a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter with all the face shapes. And a pumpkin carving idea book. How fun is this? Thanks Mary Grace for a really fun surprise and to Aunt Pitty Pat for sponsoring the swap. Some of my blogging friends have come from doing swaps, it really is fun when they all participate like they should. I got soured on them last year, but I think this renews my trust in participating again. Now that's not saying I'm going to join every swap out there. Trust me there's to many.
