So.... I got to open my parcel on Christmas Day!! Man it was hard seeing it sit there, under the tree, calling me!!! Boy was I spoilt!!!
My SS was Karen from the USA. She sent me: a vintage apron and handkerchief (from her own collection) 4 tea sachets, 2 knitted squares which I am assuming are dish cloth's?? ( I have read a lot about them in blog land) some teapot fabric, a tote bag made of fabric I just LOVE and finally an applique angel wall hanging. Oh and I almost forgot, there was a thimble in the pocket of the apron, as apparently there always was one in the pocket of Karens Grandmothers apron.
Karen thank you so much for your generosity. I have been by your blog and will be a regular visitor from now on.
I had to send a parcel to Floss in Canada. Here are a couple of pictures of what I sent her.
I figured out from reading her blog that we share a bag obsession, so it was an easy pick to make her a bag. I also sent a small wall hanging that came from the new Hatched & Patched book, "Simple Pleasures". Floss has also been very very clever and had the most gorgeous little bundle of joy, and I suspect in her opinion the best Christmas present ever. Pop over to her blog and see the pic she has shared of her new baby girl.
And finally to Chookyblue I wish to say a big thank you for the time and energy you put into this swap.It was so nice to have just a little something under the tree, just for me! I am sorry you are feeling a little unwell right now, I hope you feel better real soon.
