donnalynn2 was my very first swap partner on She made my first swap experience a very positive one. She's one terrific lady! We emailed back and forth and got to know each other. We had all filled out a questionnaire giving information about what we liked and what we wanted. I had to keep asking her questions to clarify some things for myself and in one of her emails she had the nerve to say that if she only got one of her items, she'd be happy! She said, "Please don't go nuts and get all the stuff on my list. I'd honestly be happy with even one of my items." Can you imagine if I had only sent her one crochet hook? or the pair of traveling scissors she asked for? And she was the coordinator of the swap and told us all in the rules that if our partner asked for buttons, we were to send them buttons! Not just one button. The rules said to buy for your partner as you would have your partner buy for you. No, it didn't really say that...I just did. But that's what it meant! She's also from the area in which I live and will be coming here next month! We hope to get together and visit a local yarn shop, have some lunch, and drive around so she can do some reminiscing.

Notions and stuff from me to Donna:
Annie's Attic Crochet on the Double; Split-Lock Stitch Count Markers; Thergonomic Hand-Aids; Flexible Cro-Hook H & I; 14" Afghan Hooks Sizes H & I; Crocheted heart sachet w/potpourri; a little wind chime; Hook Size Place Holders; G, H, I Hooks, Clover Soft Touch G, H, I Hooks; kids scissors for traveling; French Vanilla Fragrance Sachet.
Ghiardelli Dark Chocolate Squares and Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Chocolates...Hmm, wonder where they went to!

Goodies from Donna to Me, Yum Yum! I did take the picture before scarfing down the mini-cookies! (Sheep and baby lamb from my collection; they insisted on being in the picture!)

More from Donna to me: Ribbons and silk flowers for embellishing whatever I want to embellish! Hopefully, will be picturing something soon with some of these embellishments.

Notions from Donna to Me
There's tape measures, scissors, hooks, yarn needles
Smaller sheep is retractable tape measure (which I have been wanting for awhile)
Little blue boxes can hold anything! They did contain Donna's Migraine Headache Rx!
Cool, huh? I'm still trying to decide what I want to keep in them. May have to have her save more for me!
(Again, my mama sheep with her baby wanted to be with the new sheep)

The Whole Package!
