I think during his flight around the world our Santa had a touch too much milk and cookies and lost his way.
You see, I took part in Chookyblue’s Secret Santa Christmas Swap (aka SSCS) and come Christmas Day my Secret Santa hadn’t visited here, sadly. Chookyblue kept in contact asking if the elves had dropped any parcels here and each time I told her no but yesterday the elves flew by my letter box and left this …
So very quickly I carefully opened it – no I didn’t, I ripped into it eager to see what was inside, yeah…
Marg was my partner from Australia – between you and me Marg I think the Post Office are taking the long way round to deliver parcels to NZ, probably via the UK, LOL.
Marg sent me a lovely card and tells me that she is from SE Queensland where she lives with her husband and 8 children – good lord Marg how on earth do you get time to do anything with such a family?
OK – I’ll carry on ripping into the presents
Oh my gosh, look at this lovely ornament. The machine embroidery is just gorgeous, so delicate and intricate – wow, I love it!
And because Christmas has been and gone I can keep opening the other gifts – hehe
Yeah, my own little Mug Rug, with more beautiful embroidery. I’ve been making lots of these for people just lately but never made one for myself. Now I have one to use when drinking my Christmas ‘noggin’ *wink*.
Now just look at what was inside the next little package (I got spoilt didn’t I?) Another lovely ornament each little block so carefully folded, geez Marg, you have been so generous and there is still another parcel to go – wow.
How gorgeous is this???? A delightful hearts table runner and every heart is from a different Christmas fabric – here, have a look.
Marg you have really outdone yourself and all I can say is a huge thank you to you for your generosity and skill, these gifts I will use and admire for years to come and to Chookyblue, thank you again for another successful SSCS.
Yeah, I love Christmas and late arrivals just make the joy last longer woo hoo!
Merry Christmas and lots of hugs
