How exciting getting to open presents early. Thanks Cheryll.
My partner was Sarah from.
We were to make a sack, stocking or bag with 5 handmade gifts inside....

This was my email to her..
Just opened my gifts. I love them....
The soap smells Devine.
Have you washed the table runner. Smells lovely. The quilting is done really well. The blue will match my kitchen...
The purse is a great size. Maybe if I don't bite my nails I can use the nail file. Great inspiration. I will hide the chocolates from hubby..
I take it the selvedge pin cushion roll is for in front of the machine. What have you used to fill it... It's cool.
Love the idea of the photo frame.
I can put the grandchildren  photo with Santa in it.....
I'll definitely give the candle mat a go.

And these are the great gifts Sarah sent me...
All wrapped up......
Look at these gifts.
Some beautiful soap. With a felted wool overlay.
I will enjoy using this for myself.
It smells Devine.
A lovely zipper purse that will come in very handy.
I think this is a pin cushion roll for in front of the sewing machine.
And a nail file from maybe a place near where Sarah lives...

We are having a link up with Cheryl here....
So go have a look and see what was sent across the world. Here there and everywhere.
