I just don't know what to say. I am blown away with what Cassie http://cassiescuddles.hoodfamily.org.au has made and sent me. It really has put a smile on my face and made this Christmas a very special one. I am happy.
So I sit here this Christmas morning and just have to take time out to do a special post....
It's so good that Cassie has been blogging a little bit more at the end of this year instead of once or twice a year. When I started emailing and following her it was hard to see what she got up to. That has changed and it has been a joy to follow her blog and having the odd email chat with her.
We were partnered in the SSS16 over at http://santasackswap.blogspot.com.au
We were to make 5 gifts and a Santa sack, stocking or bag. I cannot express how amazed I am with what Cassie has sent me.... I hope you enjoy them too.
HERE THEY ALL ARE. OH SO MANY. I AM SPOILT....
Love the little Xmas setting puzzle, the coiled basket, Xmas balls and bells, the ginger bread man is so cute and the tape measure rosette is fun. It will be added on to my wall hanging. It's very fun..
And of course the bag is a great one I can use to put a special project in...
|Wow. Look at all these I get to open.|
What a great selection and where do I start.
It's 41 here today so the chocolates need to go in the fridge and be cold and ready to eat at supper time
|A pencil case and some wonderful scented pencils.|
I have never seen these pencils.
Strawberry and chocolate scented.
Will these help me with that hunger feeling?????
|A journal and a lovely cover.|
This will be going to work.
I'm sure I will have lots of notes to take.
|Another great little bag. I'm yet to find a home but I'm sure it won't take long.|
Maybe I can do some stitching on my lunch break.
I can put the needle case in here too.
|A great bag for my tea cup and tea bags at work..|
|A great bag with a zipper to close the top and a side pocket too.|
Wonderful. Might be handy at my new job.
|Love the saying on this t shirt.|
I don't where you got it from but it is fantastic...
****** Cassie made a special order for my t shirt from
|A lovely little needle case. I can see me making a few of theses as gifts...|
|If the shirt fits WEAR IT... and it does..|
Great for workshops and retreats.
I don't know how she knew my size...
|A lovely selection of gifts in this years Santa Sack Swap...|
I am about to start a new job so I will be able to use a few of these gifts straight away.
There is a mug bag for my tea cup and tea bags, a special journal and cover, a beautiful pencil case and gorgeous scented grey leads ( I will be taking lots of notes so they will be used )
And then there is this fun t-shirt I will be wearing to my quilt group meetings and workshops.
Of course all the other gifts will be used...
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.
I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING TOO GOOD OF A TIME TO BE READING BLOGS.
ENJOY THIS SPECIAL DAY....
