Posted by PicasaYesterday I got to open my gifts in the SSCS and final Advent gifts
Oh my goodness I was blown away by this gorgeous sewing bag from Flo in France
I love love love it
So beautifully made and even the colour is perfect
Thank you so very much Flo
Inside were more gifts
An Eiffel Tower key ring, some Tilda fabric and ribbon, the cutest buttons, some embroidery thread and to top it off some tea bags
Merci Flo and and also Chooky for giving me such a lovely partner and for the great job you do in organizing this swap.
Also got to open my final Advent gifts from Shez
I had admired these beautiful coat hangers when she showed them on her Blog and I was so pleased to find they were for me
Thanks Shez
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas
I had a nice day with family

Posted by PicasaI made this wall hanging for my friend Kathy for Christmas She collects angels, loves green and is always there when I need her so it is perfect
It is a Michelle Ridgeway design and was published in Country Threads magazine a little while ago
Second photo shows the lovely sewing set I received in my quilting group Kris Kringle
Love it
And lastly some more Advent gifts from Shez
Merry Christmas to all my lovely Blogging friends

Posted by PicasaToday was the day we were allowed to open our gifts in Cherylls Santa Sack Swap
I was lucky to have Maddy as my swap partner
Maddy is being a good girl and not opening her gifts until Christmas day
I couldnt wait and neither could my gorgeous Grand daughter, who is staying with me for a few days
I love everything I received
Thank you Maddy
Every thing is lovely and you have been very generous
Also a special thanks to our swap Mama for giving me Maddy as a partner
It has been lovely getting to know her and I hope our friendship will continue

Advent and SSCS

Posted by PicasaI have been very remiss in showing my gifts in some swaps I have been participating in
Firstly the first nine gifts in Fee's Advent swap, received from Shez
Lovely Thank you Shez
And secondly my gifts in Chookys SSCS arrived all the way from France
Isn't she a gorgeous angel
The other is safely under my tree waiting for opening on Christmas day
These gifts came from Florence.
Firstly I had no Internet for unknown reasons, then I have been quite unwell
Had some teeth out last weekend and got a "dry socket"
Very painful and made me feel terrible
Am on anti biotics now so hopefully will feel better soon
