Pot Holder Swap

I'm back a bit earlier than I thought :)

I was very surprised and delighted when I opened the mail box and discovered a parcel from Australia!!!  I immediately knew it was from my lovely swap partner and hurried inside to open it!  This is what she sent along with a lovely letter:
I feel so overwhelmed with gratitude.  Inside the package are two very nice and thick potholders, two Australian Christmas themed fabrics for my sewing and quilting, a precious koala bear from her DD and She even included an article by Rhonda Hetzel from Down to Earth.  If you have not yet visited Rhonda's blog I encourage you to do so.  The insight, encouragement, and information I have received from reading Rhonda's blog is absolutely wonderful and I appreciate her so very much for the time and effort she has put into encouraging others like myself on this wonderful path of simple living I cherish.  A special thanks to Rhonda for starting her blog and later the forum that has became such a valuable part of my life.  I have learned so much and met so many wonderful like minded friends.  What a blessing and fantastic opportunity this swap was to make a lovely friend across the globe!

These are the secret project I was working on that I couldn't share with you earlier just in case my swap partner dropped by my blog :)
In America a yellow rose's meaning is friendship, so I chose yellow for this pattern to send to her.  She has already received them along with a bar of handmade soap from a local soap maker and really liked her package.  Enjoy your day and the many friendships you make along the path of life!
