Secret Santa Swap and My House, My Home swap

My lovely partner in Chooky's Secret Santa swap was Lyn from New Zealand.  This was the lovely gift I opened from Lyn on Christmas morning, so it was perfect to use to set our xmas table -
It's beautiful Lyn - thankyou so much. I love it.  Lyn also added an extra gift which I forgot to take a photo of before I started this post, so will show you next time.  Thankyou for being such a lovely, generous partner.

My partner to send to was Caroline from The Netherlands -
And this was what I had made for her. One of Michelle's gorgeous star decorations, and this little wallhanging - loved the different decorations and with the variegated thread it really made them stand out. I also added one of Keryn's cute little reindeers. Thanks Chooky for once again hosting this wonderful swap.

And for our final gift in Mrs Martin's My House, My Home swap - the theme being Christmas -  this was what I received from Kerrie -

So beautifully stitched. Now Kerrie broke a bone in her hand, so was unable to put it together, so she very kindly sent me all the bits to finish it off.  Look at that very cute snowman fabric - love it - and very "me".
And I had been eyeing of this beautiful Christmas bauble in lovely wools from Hatched and Patched and Kerrie had sent me not only the pattern, but all the lovely wools to make it. Can't wait.

And she had also included a beautiful handmade felt card and a little bell decoration which went beautifully on my tree of handmade decorations.

Thankyou so much Kerrie for my gorgeous gifts and for being a lovely and generous swap partner throughout the year.  Cheryl
