The whatchagot box arrived

I hosted a "whatchagot" box swap for the Block Swappers.  The idea is to send "what ya got," that is, quilty stuff you no longer love, to your assigned recipient and in return receive quilty stuff from your assigned sender.  I sent a box off to Corinne in Washington.  Today I received a box from Joan in Michigan.



Remember the Contadina commercial? -- "How did they fit eight great tomatoes in that little bitty can?"
That's how I felt about Joan's box.  Look what was inside. Novelties, batiks, paisleys, dots, patterns, and a dishcloth.  Thank you, Joan!
P.S. Since I sent a comparable quantity to Corinne, I consider the Whatchagot Box swap to be a wash in my acquisition/use calculation.
