The Last of My Gifts From Shez

It was very special having a lovely to gift to open each morning for the 12 days leading up to Christmas.  Thankyou so much Shez for my wonderful gifts and lots of spoiling. 

Day 8 was this cute little basket - it may or may not have been a little bit fuller than this with choccie frogs.

And Day 9 were two cute pairs of black cat socks.

Day 10 - loved this gorgeous black wool cat ornament - decorated with house and snowman. 

Day 11 was this very cute hexie case - has little pockets and zippered sections. Perfect for lots of things - needles, threads, etc, and matches a lovely zippered bag made for me for my birthday last year.

Folds up to look like this - nice and compact.

And finally on Christmas Day I opened this. Boy was I blown away.  Teacup Teddies (a lovely design from Michelle) - perfect for me Shez. Just beautiful and so much gorgeous stitching.

A close up - aren't they beautiful.  Thankyou so much for your wonderful and thoughtful gifts. Very spoilt indeed. Cheryl

Thanks .........

 .... to Peg and Shez for hosting this year... what a lot of fun we have had ....  you are both much appreciated and loved....

 On Christmas Eve I unwrapped this lovely snowman wallhanging and ornament....

... haha... look at those cheeky faces...

... snowmen were just what I needed to help cool down on hot Queensland Christmas....

Christmas Day brought out this stunning sewing bag.....

with heaps of pockets for projects and the wherewithall one needs to carry around....

inside was a storage box for thread - you never have enough places to hide thread do you?

... and a lovely little pink hoop..... I always use a hoop so it's great to have a spare in the bag for those times I am forgetful!

I am flabbergasted at these lovely presents... thanks so much Cheryll..... I wish I could give you a big big hug in real.....
