Q never felt so good

Late last week I received my swap package from the lovely bright-eyed Michelle. We had the letter Q. Her collection of Q things was astouding and glorious to unwrap;

A giant paper mache Q, a Q-shaped branch (with leaves and berry BERRY still attatched!), a quivering aspen button, quinoa and recipe, quartz, a quaint blue vase (that is now housing gardenias so perfectly), quilt swatches, quince face cream, a quartet of dark Belgian chocolate blocks (with poems inside), plus lots of other wonderful things.

I feel completely spoilt. Thank you sweet partner. And I hope you like my Q-package just as much!

And to all who participated in the swap: Thank you for being such fun. Please don't forget to post photos of your package in our flickr page. Till next year!
