Secret Santa's Revealed

My Secret Santa Christmas Swap partner for Chookyblue's swap was Marcia. She was tricky, it wasn't her name on the back of the parcel so she was VERY secret till today! Thanks Marcia, it made it all the more intriguing! I love what Marcia made and sent me, as you can see the lollies didn't make the photo! I have also put in the christmas tree decoration that I was able to open when I recieved the parcel. Beautiful presents, thanks so much Marcia!
This is my Secret Santa parcel from the online stitching group Friends in Stitching. This parcel came from Chookyblue, and what a surprise that was as I had posted her off a surprise parcel! LOL. I love what she has made me, beautiful gifts.

Below are the christmas tree decorations that were sent to my children in a decoration swap with some other children. The crocheted one was sent to me, I wasn't expecting it so thanks Jodie!

My five year old son HAD to join in with the stitching when the older three were making decorations to swap. He hasn't quite finished this one, and he only had a little help with cutting out and making knots. He even threads his own needles! He has a completed one hidden away somewhere.....not sure where it dissapeared to.

This was my christmas present. Mr Busy said earlier in the month that he didn't know what to get me so I ordered this. I wasn't expecting it to arrive before Christmas and it wasn't in yesterdays mail. Mr Busy sneakily collected the parcel from the mailbox and hid it till this morning! A lovely surprise! The book is about the history of quilting in Australia, I haven't had much of a chance to look at it yet but hope to get some good browsing time in the next few days.

I will be back in the next few days to show you what was made here and sent off for swaps.
Have a lovely christmas day!
