I was totally, completely and utterly spoilt by wonderful Barb.
She very kindly allowed me to keep all my presents to open on Christmas morning and luckily I had done that before I ended up in an ambulance and off to hospital again. Thank you so much Barb for your friendship, kindness and the most wonderful bundle of goodies. I'm having a break from being online but I'll show them all in all their glorious detail when I resume blogging in the new year.
Sending much love to all of you
Big, big thanks too, to wonderful Shez and Peg for organising this fabulous group of swapping friends. I'm taking a swap break next year to attempt to finish my huge numbers of WIPs but I'll certainly enjoy keeping an eye on everything you all share.
I meant to do this before Christmas, but not sure where the last few days went.
I have so loved the gorgeous goodies Fiona has sent me. Day 7 was a lovely photo frame (always handy for grandie photos) and a beautiful teacup thread catcher, and then Day 8 was a lovely set of cheese knives, a lovely "Born to Quilt" scissor keep brooch and a cute little mouse drawstring bag which fits my little LED light in perfectly.
Wow - loved these gorgeous goodies too. Day 9 on the left was the most beautiful heavy cloth bag which unfolds to a wonderful shopping bag - love it, thankyou Fiona. Underneath is a gorgeous little decoration, and I do apologise that the photo is not very clear. Day 10 was this most beautiful little table centre - perfect for my coffee table, a lovely handmade dishcloth and teatowel.
Day 11 was this wonderful cotton reel holder with lovely sewing machine top. I didn't have one of these Fiona, so will be just perfect.
And for Christmas Day this most wonderful snowman wallhanging - just gorgeous and just "me". thankyou so very much Fiona - just love it.
A little close-up. Thankyou Fiona for all my wonderful gifts. you have well and truly spoilt me. Thankyou to Peg and Shez too for organising our fun swap.
... is the only way to describe my gifts from Marc..... these are the last 3 days of goodeis
in this parcel was someof those essential gift tags that always run out... they are such beautiful ones too... a mini hanger, two fat quarters of fabric and some lollies... mmmmm
this beautiful bag contained a William Morris calender... just perfect for me... I love his designs...
.. here is a better picture of the beautiful stitching on the bag ... it's all in soft blue greys with a piped red edge.. so striking and effective...
Christmas Day pressie was all about threads (essentials in my life!!) I lovely bag and two different plastic thread cases (hard to see but they are at the top, one has the card thread holdders in it and I have put the loose DMC's in the other to show where it is..... lots of goodies inside and a fun button hanger which will go in my lovely sewing room....
Thank you so much Marc, your pressies have been an absolute delight to open and what a lot of fun .... Thanks to Peg and Shez for coordinating this all.... xx
I hope you have all recovered from Christmas - and having some relaxation (and stitching) time, some family time and whatever you love to do....
