Purse swap received

Yes!! Look what arrived today:

 All the way from Denmark: this AMAZING package from Rosa.  And the blog post that goes with my package is funny reading. Rosa said that the card she sent summed up perfectly how she felt!!

 The purse is fanatastic - the fabrics are so me and it is so beautifully made, all designed by Rosa herself!! Both sides of the purse have been fussy cut so precisley

 Can you see the little purse as well (my photography was a little rushed as I had a red warning light flashing I was about to run out of battery!) - that is a diy project for me - I really hope I don't mess that up! And fabric as well, and threads.., and liquorice, all wrapped up in lovely wrapping paper
And Rosa read me sooooo well: look at these tiny hexies for paper piecing! Can't wait to give these a go.

Thank you Rosa - you couldn't have read me better - and it is so hard to try to get things right for a partner in a swap, but you have hit the nail on the head!
