Santa Sack Swap.....


 I received this gorgeous hexie stocking from Carol in the Santa Sack swap and I was certainly spoilt!
 I must admit I did decide to open one present last Thursday and thank goodness I did as it was forecast to be a 40 degree day and this is what was in that parcel, chocolate which went promptly into the fridge! I saved the rest of my gifts for opening yesterday after I finished my last day of work which involved cleaning walls, cots, equipment and copious amounts of laundry all day!
 First up came this beautiful jewelled lock and bookmark dress :)
 Another beautiful Christmas bag, reminds me of a crown with all those bells at the top and it made such a lovely sound as I was opening this parcel. Love it Carol!
 Next came a Christmas tea towel decorated with hand appliqued gingerbread men, already hanging in my kitchen and hubby has been warned not to use it as a hand towel for his grubby mitts :)
 A beautiful and practical food cover which will come in handy tomorrow to keep the flies away from our picnic lunch and it's also been weighted so it wont blow away :)
 Carol must have spies working over here as this is soooo me in the colour department as well as in the love of paper department, a book of sticky notes will certainly come in handy next year and the Shmick notes are sitting beside our telephone ready to do there thing :)
And finally a gorgeous zippered pouch to use for my sewing projects throughout the new year, thanks carol I had so much fun with this swap and I loved everything you made/sent for me :)
 I haven't heard from Carol yet to see if she's finally opened her gifts from me as Carol was also waiting till this yesterday to open them but when I do I'll do another post with pictures of what I sent her :)
