Santa Sack Swap

My lovely partner in Cheryll's Santa Sack swap was Carol from www.thepatchcraft.blogspot.com.au.  It was lovely as I had actually gotten to meet Carol earlier in the year at a class so we organised to hand our gifts over in person when we caught up again in October.
Mmm how gorgeous does this chocolate tree look?  And I can tell you it was just as yummy to eat.  It came on a lovely  Christmas plate WITH this beautiful stitched mat.
And Carol obviously knew that I love snowmen as she had stitched this most gorgeous snowman cushion for me - just love it
Love redwork and Carol had stitched this beautiful stitchery for me which she had framed. Fits in perfectly at my place
And look at this wonderful sewing bag with matching pincushion. Very handy for my Thursday night sewing group to keep my current project in.
Very spoilt I was. Carol had also made this gorgeous gingie (another favourite) tea towel and a very handy food throw. 
And this most gorgeous snowman bag (love it too) filled with so many lovely things - notebook, notepad, bookmark, tissue cover and tissues (had been wanting one of these for my handbag) and a very cute cross stitched reindeer on a teenie tiny hanger.

And it all came in this wonderful Hatched and Patched bag
Thankyou so much Carol. I love all my gorgeous gifts and I will love getting the Christmas ones out each year to enjoy. Cheryl
