I recently took part in the #NZMugSwap2013 hosted by Alisa. You can read more about the swap on Alisa's blog.
The swap was random rather than being assigned a partner and buying for each other. It was up to the sender if they wanted to remain anonymous or not.
I decided to make myself known when I sent my parcel...partly so I could blog about what I sent here!
My swap person to send to was Sima J and luckily she wrote a blog post especially for me about all the things she likes!
Here's a look at what I popped in her parcel...
I bought her a Tea Infuser mug which is a plain blue mug but it comes with a little "net/basket" inside so you can infuse loose leaf tea in hot water. The mug also comes with a lovely lid for infusing the tea.
I also added in:
- Organic Peppermint Teabags (I love peppermint tea!)
- A little purple windmill
- Horse stickers
- Organic Chocolate
- Some face cleanser sachets
And I also crocheted a mug cosy. Here's some extra pictures so you can see it close up...
To make the cosy I crocheted 5 little two round granny squares which I joined together as I went along. I then added a scallop border all the way around the edge. At one end I added a chain loop and at the other I sewed a button on so that the mug cosy could be clipped around any mug. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out :-)
Come back tomorrow to see what I received in the swap!
