I said yesterday I would be posting pics of the fabulous pressies I have got this week so here they are. I'll start with the lovely stitched cards I've been sent,
The red one is from Elspeth, lovely sparkly aida that's stitched on :-) The silver card with the lovely tree is from Helen. They are gorgeous!
Although technically not cards these two fabulous stitched ornaments were sent to me by by lovely friend Jeanne instead of a stitched card, as she said so it doesn't get put in a box afterwards and they can be out every year :-) They are fabulous, I love them Jeanne!
Jeanne sent this fabulous decoration to, not Christmassy but fabulous :-)
This arrived yesterday from the lovely Chris! A fabulous stitched calendar and beautiful card too, thanks so much Chris they are gorgeous! She has a lovely blog HERE if you go and say hello I'm sure Chris'll be happy to see you :-)
The wonderful Laura sent me all this!! There's the xmas pud ami, stitched key keyring, angel earrings, festive stitch markers, a super cute bookmark calendar sewing themed buttons and the thread is strawberry scented! But the best of all is the folded fabric decoration, it's amazing and I'm totally in awe of how it was made! Here's a closer look at it.
amazing isn't it! Laura has a lovely blog HERE for those who haven't already found it :-)
It was also ami swap time!!! For those of you that don't know what this is at the end of every month I swap an amigurumi with my lovely friend Steph, sometimes themed by the month but mostly a total surprise. So this months swap was obviously Christmas themed, couldn't be anything else really! Steph sent me this, it's Sally snowflake...
How cute is she?! So sweet! Also Steph sent me these three teeny knits
so tiny and cute, I added some silver thread through the tops and they are hanging on my tree now :-) and this gorgeous snowman biscornu too........and sweeties! You spoil me Steph!
This is the snowman I sent to Steph in the swap. In his earmuffs and scarf and holding his broom. Another fabulous swap :-) Steph's blog is HERE if you want to stop by and say hello.
That's all from me for now then. I just want to thank everyone who follows, comments and gives me such happiness on this little blog. I have made some lovely friends, you are all so wonderful, I want you to know it means a lot to have you there :-) Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and I hope Santa brings you everything you wish for!
I'll be back on Boxing Day to announce the winner of my giveaway so make sure you've entered it and good luck everyone!
Hugs to you all.
