SSCS and Santa Sack Arrived…

Each year Elf Chooky organises the SSCS. My parcel arrived on Friday along with my Santa Sack Swap organised by Elf Cheryll.

For the SSCS we send our partner an ornament, which they can open now, and a main gift for Christmas Day.

My Partner was Lou from over the ditch, NZ, and she spoilt me with lots of gifts

and this was the one I could open. Lou has made me this gorgeous “ Button Ornie “ Must have taken ages to make.   Thank you sew much Lou for all my gifts.
 Looking forward to opening day.…

The other parcel was from my Santa Sack partner Keryn and look at the fabulous way she packed my gifts into this adorable box. Thank you Keryn…How I am suppose to wait till to open these lovely gifts..

It will be very difficult sew after giving them a squeeze and feel I have put them back neatly in the box like they arrived and put them into the linen cupboard along with Lou’s gifts.

What is it they say “Out of sight ,out of mind” I hope….. Till Christmas….

A huge thank you to both Elves Chooky and Cheryll who take the time each year to organise these swaps and make our Christmas brighter….

  8. The button ornament is beautiful, Maria. It will look lovely hanging up. Lucky your gifts from Keryn are in the box. It will help keep the temptation away from peeking!
