One on one Christmas swap with Cheryl…

 

Cheryl and I have been doing a one on one Christmas swap for about three years now and Cheryl has never disappointed me with what’s she’s selected to make or send in our swap and this year was exception….Cheryl has gone all out to create the most wonderful parcel but I’ll let the pictures do the talking and you’ll know exactly what I mean!

here’s a close up of his face, Cheryl does such amazing detailing with her dolls faces, look at that shy grin, who wouldn’t fall in love with that smile he’s now sitting on my dresser watching the world go by Smile

But wait there’s more Cheryl also included this very Christmassy stocking which said “no peeking” well I couldn’t resist having a quick peek and found a beautiful bottle of fabric covered buttons hiding inside it. Cheryl also included a hugs ’n kisses pattern with the two cottage garden threads needed to stitch it up, I can’t wait to start on this one! I also received this gorgeous glittery Santa box filled to the brim with yummy lollies which I wont show you as I’ve already eaten quite a few being the little piggy I am at this time of year LOL.

Thank you Cheryl, I soooo love our one on one Christmas swaps and I have to say I’ve already started to plot and plan for our next swap for Christmas 2015 and because I know we’re so alike I have a funny feeling that Cheryl is doing  exactly the same as me LOL Smile

My gifts to Cheryl were a snowman cushion because I know snowmen are one of Cheryl’s favourite characters for Christmas decorating so a snowman had to be in her parcel somewhere……

I also included a snowman bag and filled it with a few smaller parcels to tease her….

Here is a picture of all that I sent her minus the little parcels as I forgot to take a photo of them before wrapping them up DUH! but if you go to this post on  Cheryl's blog as  Cheryl has more photo’s of what I sent her there.

Thanks for being such a fun swap partner Cheryl and  I can’t wait for our next Christmas swap and hopefully we’ll be able to exchange them face to face at the November Mill Rosie meet up in 2015 if possible Smile
