Santa Sack swap .....

I do love swaps and I had to leave out a few (tough choice ... swaps or OS holiday?????)

but the Santa Sack one was done in stages and Cathy was very adaptable as to when I sent bundles of gifts...

This week Cheryll gave us the 'go ahead and open' call and it didn't take me too long to get into my pile of parcels...

Here's my sack ( we agreed to make each other bags) and wrapped parcels..... (it has been so hard keeping them wrapped!!!)


... and here are all the goodies inside....


... an armchair caddy.... which is already in use.. and lots of those all important accessories us stitchers need.... scissor fob made by Cathy... , unpicker, tapemeasure and scissors.... so the caddy is full....


... and pretties to play with... 3 fat quarters of lovely oriental fabric.... red threads, don't you love that gingham ribbon and red ric-rac.... (I just ran out of that so I can take it off my shopping list!)


... and more lovely home made goodies.. there is a needlecase, pincushion, card holder and noteboook holder... so pretty... a pretty little owl ornie and a cross stitch bookmark to make....


... so lots to play with and lots of home made goodness..... just perfect ....

Thanks so much Cathy... it has been such fun swapping and getting to know you.....

... and thanks Cheryll for co-ordinating this fun Christmas swap ....

Righto... Gotto Go... new toys to play with.....
