Belgium/California Fin.

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Babs California, USA
Swapper2: Marie Belgium, Europe

Belgium to California

Oh my it's like Christmas in August!! The rest of Marie's package arrived today!! I've posted a photo of the entire package, including the Tintin stuffs I receive a couple weeks ago.
In the new package were three beautiful Martine books (I'm inspired to learn French now!), boxes of delicious speculoos cookies, and a little surprise from Marie: a handmade pink crochet flower pin. Gorgeous!! I've already put the pin on one of my cardigans. And one of the boxes of cookies is already half eaten and the day is not even half over!
Marie, THANK YOU again for such a lovely swap! I can't wait to see what beautiful things you make with the threads & beads I sent!

California to Belgium
Babs has sent me lovely crochet thread in black and burgondy red, white and blue beads, as well as a beading magazine. I have sent her Belgian cookies, illustrated children books and TinTin stuff.
Warm wishes,
