Christmas Angel Swap

I participated in the Christmas Angel swap (can you tell I love xmas lol)  with the lovely Karen from Mrs Martins Quilt Shop.  I have been spoilt with lots of lovely presents from both Barb and Maria, most of which are still to be opened, but with no stipulations on this when to open (and I know a lot of you girls have more willpower than me), but when the parcel arrived from Karen my swap partner from Qld today, I could not help myself and ripped the paper off without thinking - not very ladylike am I?  We had a list of things to do each month, so ten in all. So had to show you what Karen spoilt me with.  Two gorgeous xmas placements, xmas drawstring bag, felt candlemat (you shoudl see the work on this) and the cutest snowman stitchery - sorry my photos skills are very lacking, and holly tea towel.

A closer photo of the drawstring bag with some handmade soap, plum pudding ornie, notepad from Hatched and Patched, and the cutest little angel to hang.

How spoilt was I - I'll show you some photos of what I sent Karen when she receives them.

Not sure about the choccies I included - 42 degrees here yesterday and 32 today, but so humid like we are not used to. Think those choccies might be one big melted chocolate by the time it gets there. Have a great weekend. Cheryl
