International Parcels in the Post….



the first was my SSCS organised by Chooky sent by Royal Mail from England by Laura…

SSCS from Laura 2013 (2)

All the gifts have great wrapping paper with “Do not Open Till Dec 25th” on it.  I had to feel and shake them all before deciding the small must have my ornaments in which we were allowed to open … Thankfully I was right. Lovely felt Bird and Pear…

the second parcel come from New Zealand sent by my “Lets Celebrate Partner” Clare . I was blown away when I opened it…
Clare hasn’t been well sew she has sent my B/D gift with our block swap….

and for the block swap not only did Clare PP the blocks ( which I don’t do ) she made EIGHT.. Then sewed them together for me and sent this fabulous table runner… The block is called  “Circle of Geese” and don’t they look great….
