Once A Season Swap Gift Arrived at Shez's......and Blueberry Muffins


I recently participated in a Once A Season Swap at Cheryll's and my parcel to Shez arrived on Friday!



I ummed and ahhhed about whether to enter this swap...
the brief was......send something either handmade or bought to a secret partner that depicts Winter...
I was at Moruya Markets and saw this cute little felt girl and she said to me "Winter"...
That did it......I came home and registered for the swap!!!


Also included was a stitchery pattern that said......'Winter' by Cathy Penton


A little felt pin keep...


And all stitcher's need chocolate......Blueberry Intense for Shez as it just seemed to match...
Thank you so much Cheryll for hosting this swap...
now I'm thinking...perhaps enter the Spring Swap...


And to think the Sun will be on her way back to the Southern Hemisphere in about 3 weeks time...
the mind boggles as we are entering into Winter here...


and it's a perfect Sunday morning to make Blueberry Muffins!!!



All perfectly gluten free...
the recipe can be found over here on My Dolce Vita, my food blog

Happy Stitching......Happy Baking......Happy Sunday
