Secret Valentine Tilda Heart Swap

I have always loved Valentine's Day. I always get a dozen red roses from my husband. It is very special to me because he really isn't a very romantic guy, however he is a great husband, Dad, and he loves me very much. I look forward to these flowers every year.

This year I joined the Secret Valentine Tilda Heart Swap sponsored by Cat and her friend Lisa. Cat is in The Calendar of Houses Bee with Jackie and me. As we looked into what it was all about, Jackie and I decided to join.......thinking it would be funny if we were paired up together as partners. We weren't even though I would have loved getting her box. HA!!!

I got a box of Valentines!! I can't wait to send them out!

This was such a fun swap. I received this great package in the mail and it was full of very fun Valentine things of love. You were to send 5 things: a Tilda heart with a pocket and a special note, a notion, a gift of love, an edible gift (chocolate) and anything else you wanted to put in the package. Can you see why I am so excited?


My package was from Nicole. Drop on over and see her blog. She says she is not a quilter but a knitter! Oh, yes!! I got a really nice knitted neck warmer (which I need since the temperatures are at zero and below) and some knitted dish cloths. I will use them both!

Do you see the hot chocolate for two? My favorite!

Look at all the other goodies. I got ribbon, soap, buttons, chocolate and candy, and my Tilda heart was great!!
Thank you Nicole!! You did a great job for me!

Luv ya, Jodi

  4. I had to come back and post today, because what do you think my husband walked through the door with this morning...a DOZEN roses. =) I was totally surprised...so sweet...can't complain now, cause I probably won't get getting anything for Valentine's, but that's okay. =)

  5. WOW, Jackie. You are one generous swapper. I received my Tilda heart swap from you yesterday, and I was blessed beyond belief. Everyone in my little family oohed, and aahed, over everything in the beautifully packed parcel. I love the "love" quilt, I can't believe that you could part with it. I just want to say thank you very much, and that you have blessed me with your generousity. I will feature it tommorow on my blog. Godbless, and thank you.
