Portugal/California Swap Complete

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Teresa Portugal, Europe
Swapper2: Babs California, USA

California to Portugal
Babs sent me a package which was just right and timely. She sent me some fabulous fabrics, one of which came just handy for a project I had to finish. I love the tshirt she sent me, weather cooperated nicely and got to wear it already. When she suggested sending me a Japanese jewelry book, of course I agreed because one can never have too many japanese craft books (don't dare to contradict me there or you will send me into an existential quandary), but when it got here it was about macramé of which I know nothing and meant to learn! To top it off, some lovely sour candies and some very bold lovely tictacs.
Loved it, thanks!

Portugal to California
Another package filled with fun arrived at my door last week! This package is from Teresa in Portugal. I've said it before, and I say it again: I just love Portugal!
Teresa sent me all sorts of beautiful things. Tea towels, sweets, a children's book, a magnet, a mix CD of traditional Portuguese music, tea, trim, yarn, postcards, soap and an assortment of items with the Galo de Barcelos on them. My favorites? Teresa sent me a handmade bag & a pair of handmade earrings!! I've already put the bag and earrings to good use. I can't wait to listen to the CD and try the candy. I have big plans for the yarn.
Also in the package was another little treat: a vintage saco-guardanapo. There is a better photo of it to the left (it got covered by the CD in the photo above). The embroidery is exquisite!
MUITO OBRIGADA, Teresa! This is such a fantastic package. Thank you also for all your wonderful emails during the swap! =)
