swap goodness

Thanks for all the nice comments on my last post - the doll is indeed Vicky the Viking. Vicky is apparently a boy - although with a girls name and a dress. This confused me massively as a child. Maybe is was just preparation for the real world :o)

I have received two lots of swap goodness in the last week, both from swaps organised by Katy. First is from Hoola Tallulah for the Russian doll swap from last year. This didn't take 8 months to get here, although you would be forgiven for thinking the post could be that bad - Tallulah was due to have her baby around the time of the swap so this package was somewhat delayed, but well worth the wait - look at all that beadwork, so pretty. The package also contained chocolate (mmm) and some great vintage print fabric pieces.

My second swap package was from Shari of sew make time! This was part of Katy's fat quarter swap. Shari sent me 3 fq's in bright vintage prints and some trim. I don't own many yellow fabrics so this was really a good addition to my stash - a perfect stash swapage indeed :o)
so that's the eye candy over, now check out this ear candy (can you say that, it sounds weird doesn't it). This is used on a TV ad for washing liquid in the UK and it's a lovely tune:
Lisa Mitchell - Neopolitan Dreams

I like that song too - it has been used in ads and a TV show here. She was a contestant on Australian Idol last year
