Presents! (Pic Heavy)

Wow!! I can not believe the time and love put into every one of these gorgous gifts!

First there was this gorgeous bag....
There are beautiful big pockets and even a keychain hook thingy (yes very technical :P ) inside! Perfect to hold my WIPs for the crazy 15 challenge/Wipocalypse next year. So happy. And the detail of the stitching *swoon*
A snowman ornament, so cute, threads and ribbon in my favourite color and a beautiful bag of beads and buttons.
Having admired these teatowels on Fionas Blog before I couldnt believe my luck when she made one for little ol' me! Love something that makes housework fun!
A gorgeous notepad, Christmas pillow, and what I think is a little owl keyring keeper, as there is a keyring hook thingy on the ribbon inside the owl. Fiona will be able to tell me whether I am right lol.
A beautifully stitched satchel? with the most devine smelling soap
A needlebook!! Exactly what I wanted for Christmas lol. and gorgeous baby blue aida (Hmm, I'll have fun finding a project or 2 for it)
Stunning Hexagons!
A cute ladybug (pincushion or just fun thingy) which DD (1) took an immediate shine to lol

So all in all I feel very humbled and blessed. They are all stunning and will be very treasured. Thank you so much Fiona, and I hope you get a little fun out of yours as well :)

And if you havent joined the Santa Sack Swap this year, its such a great idea, if Cheryll does it again next year, come and join in the fun!

Fiona said...

so glad you liked them... I had such a lot of fun.... yes, the owl can hold keys.... or scissors... and the ladybird was initially a pincushion but personally I think it is a bit little and you would stab yourself.... so a fun thingy ...
