No Fuss Christmas Swap

Merry Christmas Girls, I hope everyone has had a fabulous Christmas whether it be surrounded by family or sitting on a beach eating prawns alone... I have had such a busy few weeks that I am hoping to catch up on my blogging this afternoon..time will tell if I can get it all done.  I was wondering how everyone went with their swaps..
Susan sent (handed) me a pretty wrapped parcel when we saw each other last, to put under my tree for Christmas day. 
I Love my tea-towel Susan made - it's a very clever way to use up pieces ribbon and lace, I will have
to remember this technique in the future..  
I also found inside - yummy Cadbury chocolate, a packet of Christmas stocking buttons, a gorgeous piece of lace and a pretty mug rug...  I love the lot (hubby also particularly loves the chocolate and has already made plans on me sharing with him - so he thanks you too)..   Thank you Susan for being my No Fuss Buddy - I love all of them..

 I made for Erica and seeing as she doesn't have a blog - I thought I would post what I sent to her..
A piece of Red lace, a santa cookie, three Christmas buttons sewn on a card, a white/Christmassy tea-towel and a needle book with one of the stitcheries on the front..  I put all these in a small sack (I didn't make the sack - it was one I had prepared earlier - much earlier..lol)...
Well that will do me for this post - I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and thanks girls for participating in my little swap.. It was lovely being part of a swap, I have enjoyed our Christmas one..

Merry Christmas

Thankyou so much Sandi for my wonderful gifts, they were all beautiful!

It was really special to open my pressie on Christmas day. The family were all intrigued as each little gift appeared out of the gorgeous bear hugs bag and they loved looking at all the lovely things. I seemed to be opening little packages for quite a while!

Special thank you for the beautiful handmade Santa card. I will post a photo soon.

Merry Christmas!

I'm glad you liked my presents - though I must confess I didn't make the tea towel - but I have filed it away in the "good ideas" list! LOL
I am sure Erica would have loved opening her presents as well - probably a first for her!!

Thanks for organising the swap - they are always fun.
