Ho Ho Ho

Well what a big surprise I received on Saturday.  My FHFS parcels were delivered to me by my secret Santa Shez.  Woo hoo.  Now to be good until December.  I admit to a little bit of a feel and  a squish lol, but they are out of sight so I can't be tempted -

Thankyou so much Shez. Can't wait. Cheryl

Spoilt beyond belief

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.

More gifts from Cheryl

Well Christmas has come and gone, now it's time to catch up.  These are the final gifts that I opened from Cheryl.  I was very spoiled.
2 stunning pillows, a reindeer food bag which had peanut m m's in it.
Love this penguin wall hanging.

I have been very spoiled thank you Cheryl.  Now it's time for me to get organised for next year.

More Spoiling from Fiona

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.
