I've Been Spoilt Again

Two lovely parcels arrived in the mail today - one from my friend Karen, and the other from Julie, who unbeknown to me was my secret partner in Maree's secret Santa Christmas swap. And how spoilt was I -
This very large parcel arrived from Julie, and of course I could wait to open it to see what was inside.
Something rea/d - yes a beautiful red bag - it's just gorgeous Julie, and just my colors. Will look very smart out shopping with this.
Something for the sewing room - a gorgeous handstitched pincushion (top left), something smelly (tealights at top of the picture -( nearly missed them, and Julie obviously knew I loved candles), something for the tree - two very gorgeous decorations, something to eat - a very yummy tin of cherry flavored lollies. And as you can see I was a very good girl and left one unopened to go under the tree. 

And these most gorgeous handmade cards - you are so very talented Julie.I havn't got your email address Julie, but just loved my gorgeous parcel, so a big, big thankyou for my most lovely presents. Loved them all, and thankyou for being my secret partner
 
Now Karen and I were partners last year in Mrs Martins Christmas swap, and we have so much in common, so I often see things and think Karen would love this or that. We chat often and have our own little swaps now.   She surprised me with a lovely xmas gift -
Karen knows how much I love snowmen - isn't he beautiful - the cutest felt bag which is a Bunny Hill design, and I'm very partial to marshmellow Santas Karen.
And she also sent me this very gorgeous Lynette Anderson bag as she knew I would love it - great for taking my sewing out and about.  Thankyou dear friend.  You both made my day.
