My first swap!

Both of my tea swap partners received their packages and so I can now post pictures. Thanks Jessica for the pics. I stitched this piece twice ! They both seemed pleased with the results.

Started: 4/16/08 - Finished: 4/19/08 (x2)


The swap moderator stated that we should swap a handmade tea-themed item and five teas. If you know me, I always go WAY overboard. I swapped a stitched and framed (by me!) piece, eight loose teas (from three different tea shops), colored rock sugar and a honey bear to sweeten the tea. Oh well, I had a good time collecting everything to send to my partners. Not bad for my first swap!
