Goodies in the Mail

Blogging often means swapping with other talented crafters.  Thanks to some of you, my mailbox has held some sweet surprises lately.  Courtesy of Brown Paper Packages I found this wonderful treat on my doorstep after work on Friday.
Eek!  I wanted to stay up all night and sew at least three of them!
There was also this fleece dress for Little V.  I am in love with the neckline.

The day before, another package arrived from a reader in the US.  I had told her how it's impossible to find printed knits in Canada and she sent me some!   

I have Tanya to thank for this lot (and this is just a small sampling of it).  I love a mix of goodies like this.  So many possibilities...

And I actually won something during Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day back in May.  It took a while to arrive due to our postal strike.  My winnings included two of these marvelous pillowcases:
And this stash:

If you blog, have you been swapping with blogger friends too?

I love trading. Now I'm thinking I need to make a blog just so I can find other lovely people like you to trade with and get more sewing ideas. It would also be nice if my 13 year old were say..... 4 again.
