12 days of Christmas
I took part in Jo's Twelve days of Christmas swap & it was an absolute delight to be part of it. I've been very blessed with my swap partners of 2015 & the luck continued when Jo partnered me up with Susan
I received a chocolate koala bear in a Christmas stocking as yet uneaten because it really is too cute.
Some little hand knitted hats for fun. I'm going to peg them on my Easter twig tree (once I've sneaked it past Mike)
A delightful little sewing kit
A pack of buttons which funnily enough contained a ladybird button. I sent Susan a pack of buttons which I nearly didn't as it contained a ladybird button & I do like them. I was delighted to receive one back!
Some pretty little gifts tags
A booklet on crochet baby blankets, a friend is having her first child this year so this will be useful
A pretty notebook which contains the workings out of Harry's first lot of physics homework
A pen which was used to write the workings out
A covered coat hanger which is now in my wardrobe with my Christmas sweater over it
A pretty heart magnet peg which resides on the big fridge freezer.
A quilt kit which I absolutely adore
Mike even took me to the big fabric shop to get some cream & patterned fabric for the side bits & won me a voucher for £5 off my next visit!
I'm off for four days now - utter bliss so once I've completed my housework & chucked all the bits in the slow cooker for a curry I hope to start cutting out the rest of the squares for my quilt.
Rocky hound wasn't left out either but I've lost the photo of him playing with his toy that Susan sent, it was a home made fabric twist pulling thing which Rocky absolutely loves. I had a splendid photo of Rocky playing with it, he even takes it in his bed with him.
A huge thanks to Jo for hosting & a huge thanks from Rocky & I to Susan for your lovely gifts. Mike even got to take part as he was dishing the gifts out to me day by day to stop be unwrapping them all at once!
Take care all xx
