Santa Gifts

My Secret Santa Swap parcel arrived today from my partner Christine. I have to keep telling myself DO NOT OPEN TILL CHRSTMAS MORNING.

Before popping my gifts in the my beautiful Santa Sack I gave them the mandatory feeling, squeezing and shaking. Hmmm!!

  7. Once again you've been very busy and got lots done. Glad the parcel arrived safely. Hoping to get some more work done on something special today! I wonder what it could be! It's gone back to winter here so a perfect day to sit by the fire and stitch.

  9. All this sewing your doing is making me dizzy....I'll need a rest after admiring it all. Maybe you could just peek into you yummy Christmas parcels and rewrap them tightly?

  11. Golly Jeepers Maria! Have you even had time to sleep???????????????? LOL

    I am really So good at waiting or Christmas, but having those pretty packages right under my nose would be hard to resist. But on the bright side - at least you can feel , shake and enjoy the inspiration. How neat is that !

    Love , Love, LOVE all of your hard work. Did you ever dream when you were a little girl that you would grow up to be a "Fiber - Artist"?
