SSCS

Very excited today. My parcel in Chooky's Secret Santa Christmas swap arrived today.  My partner Anne Heidi from Norway posted my parcel on 27th November, so we were starting to get a little worried. A very slow plane ride indeed. But it was worth waiting for.

Firstly there were these two gorgeous mitten decorations.  Very cute indeed and I love the snowman/snowflake fabric.  Do you think Anne Heidi may have done so research.


In my second parcel was this most beautiful zippered sewing bag. The photo does not do it justice - it has a zippered top and a zippered pocket on the side and I missed the lovely handle which said "stitched with love". Beautiful stitching on the front and such yummy fabrics.  Perfect size for my current project.


Inside were these gorgeous buttons - had to have a close up - they are gorgeous. As well as snowmen, there are snowflake and xmas tree buttons also.
The red and white is the beautiful paper they were wrapped in.  Some more lovely embellishments in the form of mini cookie cutters and some very handy needles as well as this lovely card.

Anne Heidi, I was blown away by your beautiful gifts and thoughtfulness.  Thankyou so very much - I will treasure them. Cheryl
