Fall Basket Swap....

I joined the lovely Michelle's Fall basket Swap and my partner was Susan... sjmcdowell.blogspot.com We both had so much fun doing Baskets for each other and we both have received them so I wanted to do a quick post......Look at the beautiful basket Susan made for me.....





I love the yellow and the orange bow and she wrote me the sweetest card! Take a peek at what is in here....






ok, you better click on the photo to get a better look, Cause this baby is full of treasures....A Halloween scarf, candy corn, candles, a vintage card and the cutest pumpkin pin cushion...the fist one she ever made...under his hat is where the cushion is....






I told you all the other day I quilted something...it was for the basket I sent her....Here it is, a little tabletopper....





I sent a cute pumpkin basket, some scrapbooking goodies, a cute leaf plate, candles and some candy I picked up at a local farm....















A big thank you to Michelle again for hostessing and to Susan for being such a wonderful partner and new blogging friend!

How fun! Isn't is pretty costly to send things like that in the mail though? I have wondered about these swaps and the cost to post. Come say hi :D

Oh, how I love to see what everyone is receiving in their baskets. That makes it all worth while for me to host. Everyone has been getting some fun stuff! I love the little pin cushion, and the table topper you made is superb. Love it all! And yes, Susan is a jewel of a person, a true friend forever!
