Santa Sack ........

Way back in July Cheryll from Gone Stitchin' was thinking of Christmas.... and organised a Santa Sack swap.....  we were all to make a Santas Sack and then each month send a couple of gifts ......

I have been partnered up with Sherry from Cross Stitch Crazy Mum and it has been such fun reading her blog and getting to know her over the months.... (you should pop by there.. Sherry has the most lovely cross stitch work)

It has been very hard not to do any peeking..... I tell you that sack was BULGING!


Today we were 'allowed' to open them......

just look at my smorgasbord of fun ...


there is a very pretty container (just right for earrings),

some Australiana fabric,

a lizard with a christmas hat mug

and pretty pink buttons with butterflies (sorry those pictures are blurry - I was a bit excited!!),

look at the wonderful selection of novelty buttons,

and  crewel stitching kit (now that is something I haven't tried),

 a "Dare to be Different" lizard mug (Sherry did her homework - I love lizards!),

a hand made cross stitched cushion (I told you Sherry does the most beautiful cross stitch),

a HUGE lizard for on the wall (such a handsome fellow),


 the cutest scissor holder,

a very sweet sewing pattern called Angel Bears,

look at this lovely sewing machine fabric,

an adorable Welcome Friends cushion (more lovely hand work - which is up decorating my branch)

 ..and they all came in the santa sack shown at the top....

Sherry, thank you so much - and thanks too to Cheryll for organising this swap....

Such wonderful gifts in your sack - such a nice partner to find you so many lizards.

Kathy said...

Your blog is great Fiona and the presents are so good, I hope you enjoy the crewel stitching. What a name crewel, always makes me think of how cruel it is when the needle accidentally digs into the finger!
