pretty {little} pouch swap complete!

After swearing off swaps for a bit, you may remember that I couldn't help but join in the Pretty {Little} Pouch Swap on flickr. The pouch I made was well received by the fantastic Kerry of VeryKerryBerry last week. As members kept adding their pouches to the pool, I'll admit I was getting a bit antsy wondering which one would come my way. I loved so many of the pouches that were posted!

Well, I am so thrilled that my wait is over, because I received this lovely package in the mail today:


When I opened it, I literally squealed and started jumping up and down. Linda (lindakl on flickr), who lives in the Netherlands, made me this incredible patchwork pouch out of some of my most lusted after fabrics. She even lined it with the coolest hot pink Suzuko Koseki button fabric that I have had in and out of my etsy shopping carts over the last few weeks.  Inside the pouch were so many great goodies too-- awesome Suzuko Koseki and Kumiko Fujita fabrics, fun trims, and a waffle cookie (that was immediately devoured).

Receiving such a wonderful gift was a great treat after a long day spent chaperoning the 2nd grade field trip to our local indoor water park. Linda, THANK YOU!
