How lucky can a gal be? Two separate swap parcels arrived on the same day! Who says there’s no Santa Claus?
The first package that Santa brought came all the way from New Zealand. In the card that she included, Julz apologized for being a tad late in sending her gifts out but let me say that it was WELL WORTH THE WAIT! Julz was my secret swap partner in the Stitcher’s Angel Swap.
A virtual sleigh full of goodies and all individually wrapped, each with it’s own tag!
The first package contained two fat quarters of The Floral Collection in Pastel by Lecien. Absolutely gorgeous!
Next was the “sweet”est needlebook. I love needlebooks second only to pincushions of course.
And the inside.
Then I opened a journal that Julz covered with the same fabric as the needlebook and with the same embroidered motif. It’s new home is right beside my computer. Also included was a calculator that Mr. Painted Quilt tried to pinch (to no avail) and a pin from a local quilt shop called Sawmillers Quiltery and Crafts.
Then I opened this amazing pincushion with a button down lid that when open, serves as a needle minder as well. How cool is that?
Next I found a gorgeous scissor fob and a fused cut out in the likeness of Mac, our Westie which is destined to become a pillow.
Thank you soooooo much, Julz for all the wonderful goodies that you sent to me. I love them all! And thanks also to Helen for hosting this swap.
And if you think that these gifts were awesome, you’re just going to have to come back in the next little while to see what else Santa delivered. Isn’t Christmas wonderful?
