Mrs Martin's 'Let's Celebrate' year long Swap...

Last Friday the parcel postman brought me a parcel from Lynne, my swap buddy in the 'Let's Celebrate' Swap. This time we were celebrating 'The World's largest Morning Tea' and our task was to make a mug rug for our partner in the swap and to include a favourite recipe for something yummy to go with a cuppa :-).

These are the lovely goodies that Lynne sent to me...


Haven't I been spoiled? The beautiful mug rug also has my initial stitched on it :-) Lynne included a bag with some teas, coffees and 2 little heart chocolates. If you look closely you will notice the packet of 'honey stars' has been opened...my neighbour had dropped in to see how our weekend went so naturally I offered her one of these dainty biscuits.
Lynne also sent a bath bag which had oolong, chamomile, rose petals, lavender and lemongrass in it and it certainly sounds relaxing...I have never seen these before so I'm rapt to be able to try them...and that's not all! Lynne also sent a booklet of her special recipes for afternoon tea. Thank you so much Lynne...you have spoiled me!

Now I only took a photo of the mug rug that I made for Lynne...the other little goodies that I sent with it, just got wrapped up and sent and it wasn't until later that I realised I hadn't taken a photo :-/ .


As you can see, some more of those long hexies that I like so much. I also sent a novelty tea infuser, some serviettes with tea cups on them and a teabag (or infuser!) rest which matched the design on the serviettes. And the recipe was for Hikers Cakes.
And of course thank you to Karen for organising this year long swap.
