Canada/Portugal Complete!

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Teresa Canada, North America
Swapper2:
Flor Portugal, Europe

Portugal to Canada
Flor sent me a wonderful package – it’s Christmas early here! She knew that I like birds, so she sent me a lovely themed package with several birds. I got some great bird-printed fabric, some bird stamps from all over the world (Zambia, Portugal, Angola, Brasil, Belgium), a little penguin with bubble bath in it (and a cow too), 2 different types of chocolate which were readily eaten! Some loose leaf tea, knitting patterns and 2 different types of yarn. She also made me a hat and scarf (very usful right now, it’s getting cold!) It was such a great package of wonderful stuff, I had difficulty choosing what I wanted to photograph. I ended up snapping a pic of the pretty necklace she made for me: bird themed, with a couple of budgies on it!
Teresa

Canada to Portugal
This was my second swap and it couldn't have been better. Teresa is such a dear, she sent me a lot of things that she knew that I would love: the last issue of Vogue Knitting magazine; this wonderful yarn in one of my favourite colours; a lovely rubber stamp; a book pet bookmark; stickers with cats ;-); a lovely felt pin, very good to use now in the Winter; lots of candies; tea bags; homemade stitch markers; and, finally, this really cute bear that I love and that she made herself. You can see it in the picture already at home between my books. Isn't he lovely? Thanks Teresa for the great package, I hope we can make another swap sometime.

Wow, I didn't know you read Diana Gabaldon too! The little bear will feel quite at home with you :)
