Hugs Swap

My Hugs swap package from Paula arrived while I was away. I wish to apologise for the lateness of this posting due to circumstances I won't go into now. I have at least let her know I have them. It was a lovely package to come home too.
I had let her know that I would not receive them until I got back from my holidays on the 10th.
This is a close up of the angel on the mat. Paula has used some lovely variegated yarns...personally I love variegated yarns so this was very appropriate for me :). I also particularly loved the ribbon so had to show a proper view of this too.
Isn't it gorgeous and it goes so well with the stitchery. Thank you very much Paula. I enjoyed having you as my first ever swap partner. Thanks also to Jenny & Vicki for organising the swap. It was definitely fun and everyone need a hug :)

Just in case you are wondering, this is what I sent Paula (though it looks much nicer on her mug, which you can see on her blog here). I checked out her blog and conveniently (for me) she was organising a fall swap as she loves autumn colours. Ah ha...I think I'll do it in autumn tones :). Mind you I read the instructions for the mat and then forgot all about the seam allowance so the mat was a little smaller than intended. So its read twice, measure twice ....make sure you have added the seam allowance...check...then cut :)
Oh well we live and learn (LOL)

Anyway I think I might have a hot lemon tea in my hugged mug :)

Hugs to all,
