Are you ready ......

.... to see what was in my huge parcel?

Maree hosted the 6 items Christmas swap and our partners were secret right up to the arrival of the parcel..... so I had no idea that wonderful Cheryll (swap mama extraordinaire) was sending to me...

These are all my gifts.. and a juicy bit of gossip... 

(I expect that news will go viral on facebook)

Something To Eat

Nyummy yummy chocs and nice tea to have with them...... I just loooooovvvveeee orange chocolate

Something For the Tree

Aren't these woven hearts so pretty... I had these on my wish list to do... now I don't need to as I have my own special ones....

Something that Smells Nice

I wish technology could add the scent of this lovely packet and soap....  there is something luxurious about nice soap and the satchet has gone into my linen cupboard (scented linen is also luxurious!) ......

Something for the Sewing Room

No mistaking that this thread holder belongs to me.....

here it is opened up and will hold lots of lovely garden thread skeins... it's just beautiful and Cheryll's stitching is just perfect and so neat ... there is also a lovely stitchery pattern, two of those beautiful threads to go in it.... and some pretty ribbon

Something to Read

.... you know I didn't have one of Marg Low's patterns... and now I have a whole book of them...and full of projects I know I will love making....

... it came with this very special bookmark...

isn't that just so delightful.....

Something for Under The Tree

you can see I am being very good... there is a big sign which says NO PEEKING  TILL CHRISTMAS... but it feels soft with a hard centre.... hmmmmm

... and an extra....

... as I said Cheryll's stitching is just perfect and I love these naughty mices on the pillow... what a lovely little detail of bells.  I had seen this one on her blog and coveted it... she must have felt the vibes....

... and another extra....

these coasters have personalised writing all around the edge from Cheryll to me... they are so fun .....

.... and another extra....

Recipe cards.. for yummy goodies... I have just recently bought gingie cutters (they are still in the packet) and was going to google a gingerbread cookie recipe... now how did Cheryll know I needed that... and some lovely gift cards ... just perfect for my wrapping of parcels...

.. and ANOTHER extra....

a lovely kitchen dishcloth wrapped around a cushion insert.... now I don't know about you but I can never find a spare one of those when I need it... It was a great extra to hold all the pressies in place in 
the box....

My first guess was for a cushion cover in the "NO PEEKING" parcel... but there is a hard piece in there..... maybe it's a giant chocolate with a giant almond inside....

.... this is the bundle all together.... 

.. the table is taken over with goodies....

... oh and there is a bon bon too.... one of those real ones which pulls and makes a bang

picture heavy post... but that is not my fault... blame Cheryll....

Righto, Gotto Go.... new toys to play with...... THANK YOU SO MUCH Cheryll - you have so totally spoilt me ... and thanks Maree for hosting this fun swap - I hope you have a wonderful trip overseas ....
