Gifts I received in the Advent swap, SSCS Swap & the Angel Swap

Week 2 of the Advent swap saw me opening all these lovely gifties from Jenny. Lovely fabrics, DMC threads, ribbons & lavender handcream,

Week 3 saw me opening a lovely box of notecards, coffee mug, plaque,bauble for my tree, rose incence,
 quick unpick & a lovely pattern of a mouse to hold my needles & cotton reel & on it's tail.

Week 4 i opened up more lovely fabrics, some tassles, red buttons & a roll of ribbon. As Jenny put the ribbons, tassles & buttons in small bags i have them as an added present to. :)

And for the main present?

This gorgeous bag with an embroidered panel & i just realised you can hardly see it but on the right is a tea bag folder Jenny made to match the bag. But wait there was one more surprise in my main present.
This delightful bag was included. The bags & tea bag holder were wrapped in another lovely piece of fabric, tied with a green ribbon. Aren't i a lucky girl to have recieved all these lovely gifties. Thanks Jenny & thanks to Fiona & Jo for running the swap.

This is my present from the SSCS swap. It was made for me by Missy in the USA. An apron done in my favourite colour. Thanks Missy. It will find a lot of use in my home.
 Now for the lucky last photo's. I was minding  my own business on the 4th of January when i heard a noise out the front. Thought to myself "that soumds like the parcel man but i'm not expecting anything". As i walked up the hallway to see i saw the parcelman leaving through my front gate. " Ahhh he did deliver to me" So out the front door i pop to discover a rather large box on the stairs. So there i am retrieving the box wondering who on earth sent me a parcel. Boy was i so excited when i read where it was from. Guess what had finally arrived after 2 months of waiting. You see my lovely Angel Jacqueline had emailed me to say my parcel had been posted on the 29th of October so where the parcel has been in those 2 months i've no idea. Apart from being opened by quarantine all arrived safe & sound. Here's what i found in the box.
Pincushion, needle holder, scissor holder, & a covered tape measure. All in purples just for me. :).
These gorgeous china clogs, windmill & bowl with a beautiful card

These lovely edible goodies. Only the box at the back hasn't been eaten yet.
Last of all are 2 pieces of fabrics and a pin that is shaped lik a cabin with a log cabin block on it. The bottom says "The Log Cabin Hillensberg 1997-2007". So i've been very blessed with all the lovely things i've received.
 Hugs, Jeanette
PS: Don't go away as i'll be back with more tomorrow. :)
