I was so excited to unwrap my SSCS gift on Christmas morning. This is my first year participating in Chooky's SSCS and it has been rather enjoyable.
My Secret Santa turned out to be Tonje from Norway. Here is what was in my parcel.
I just love the gorgeous table mat that she made for me, it has such lovely colours and its just perfect. She also made me a little fabric basket that I am going to use for putting my threads in when I am at the sewing machine or when I am stitching, also the colourful dishcloth she knitted reminds me of sherbet. And there were some Norway souvenirs for me aswell.
Thank you Tonje for a wonderful first SSCS swap, I shall treasure all that you sent me.
Here is what I sent to my partner Lyn in New Zealand. The decoration I showed earlier, the larger gift was a pieced stocking. I received a lovely email from Lyn on Christmas Day just before she was heading off on a plane to fly to Sydney to spend Christmas with her Mum. I'm glad you liked your gifts Lyn.
I have also just received the Travelling Treasures Pirate Chest of charts. Here is what I chose to keep from the chest.
The Brightneedle design included linen and threads aswell.
I have now added in quite a few charts to the mix and it will now be making it's journey to Kaye over the other side of Australia.
Until next time, happy stitching/quilting
