Fall Swap

For those of you who have been following my blog you know that I've participated in the Sensational Seasonal Swap started by Jo-Anne on Rughookers Yahoo.  So this was my fourth season and have received a wonderful box from my swap partner Gail Becker.  This is the beautiful mat she hooked for me.  As you can see there is perfect hooking, gorgeous colors and over dyed wool.    I have often wondered whether to put my initials and date in something which is a gift and now know the answer clearly in my mind.  The answer is a definite YES.  This will forever remind me of our on-line communication and fun swap.
In addition to the beautifully hooked Fall leaf mat I received some over dyed wool and the most delicious garlic and onion roasted almonds in the world.  Obviously the almonds have been long gone because they are addictive BUT they are also healthy.
And, this is the very humble swap that Gail received from me.  OH, but I did send her 4 pieces of wool and a big Dark Chocolate Bar too.  However I think that I got the best of the deal.
Here in slower, lower Delaware it really is beginning to feel like fall.  Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hi, Saundra,
    I love both the mat you received and sent! Thanks for posting so many wonderful pictures of Cape May. I am hooking away on the Frost Sheep rug I ordered from you, and hope to have a picture to send you within a week. I have simplified it a bit to make it more primitive, Meinda
