SSCS and other nice Parcels....

This year I joined Chooky for the fun SSCS .  Sew Santa has been busy delivering parcels all over the world.....
Mine parcel was sent from across the ditch, New Zealand by the lovely Lyn ...
We were allowed to open the small gift straight away...

Lyn stitched a beautiful ornament for me....

I was a good girl and have put the other gift under my tree....can't wait to see what Lyn has wrapped in there...only 5 more sleeps and I can open it...

Thank you Chooky for running the swap and Lyn for my gifts..XXX

My blogging friend Sunny sent my Christmas gift some time ago and she said I could open it now...

Look at the lovely cross stitched cushion she made me  as well as popping in some nice pre-printed stitcheries for me to do all wrapped in a Christmas FQ.

I love to make blocks for Aussie Heros .The Mystery Block Group is organised by the fabulous Lynn and I was delighted to have received this special gift from her.... A great pen engraved with the group on...

If anyone is interested in joining Aussie Heros you can read about it  HERE

Then yesterday there was a squishy package which contained Walnut Shells.

I have never been able to source them here sew the thoughtful Raewyn carried them across the ditch on her last busy visit and then had then posted to me...

OH !!!!! Nearly forgot......Another gift was sent from the USA from Linda.....

interesting pattern books......

A HUGE thank you to all the lovely ladies, Chooky, Lyn, Sunny, Lynn and Linda for spoiling me sew........😘

Off to make my Lunch to take to the Marina and Have while chatting to the ladies....

Hugz Maria :)

  7. Ahhh--I see that Santa--though some friends is being very good to you so far--
