Santa Sack Swap

Thursday was designated opening day for the Santa Sack Swap.

My partner for this swap was the lovely Karen who is having more than enough technical issues with computers, blogging etc etc.

A very large box arrived at my house a couple of weeks ago and let me just say that on Thursday I was in tears due to the generosity of someone that I have never met in real life - check out the pictures!

All beautifully wrapped and overflowing from the bag

The bag itself! Stunning!

Some little shoulder bags - just as well these aren't the colours my girls are into!

treats inside the little bags

a whole load of inspiration

Fabric and buttons to help that inspiration!

Beautiful tree ornies

A project bag - stuffed full of necessary items

A little pouch - also stuffed full and some extras as well

Stationery - always welcome in my house!

Personalised Luggage Tags

The most sweetest WISH Angel - her eyes just sparkle -
she will be living with me in the sewing room all year!

Karen - I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I know you are away and opening your gifts from me on Christmas Day - I hope you enjoy them.  May the generosity that you have shared come back to you over and over

De xoxo
