SSCS, No Fuss Swap and special gifts....

Each year I love to join in for Chooky's SSCS and this year I received my parcel from Martine all the way from France. A big thank to Chooky and her assistant Elf Denice for organise the swap again this year.

When I opened my parcels on Christmas morning I was overwhelmed,

This was the main gift. A beautifully stitched wall hanging....

and look at ALL the other amazing gifts she kindly sent to me.

Thank you sew much Martine for spoiling me sew much..

Can't show you the gits I sent to my swap partner as I haven't heard if she received them yet...

Another swap I always love to participate in is the No Fuss Swap organised by Sandi and this year the lovely Illene and I love all the gifts she made and sent to me...

A great covered notebook, gorgeous gingerbread men tea towel, lovely lace and cute button ..
and two yummy Santa choccies...          Thank you Illene such great gifts...

These are the gifts I sent to Anthea ,


I also was able to open two special gifts from my overseas blogging friends.



 Sunny made a beautiful stitched wall hanging which looked great behind my Christmas tree

                                                                              and Ellyn sent a lovely birthday/Christmas parcel

The sweet little zipper purse will hold my coffee money when I go for walks , love the woven christmas tree to pop on the tree, will have to think about what to make with the mini charm packs and love my pretty pin..

Huge thank you to all the ladies for all my wonderful gifts.....

Happy Stitchig
