My parcel has arrived,


I was partnered up with "annie the felt fairy" in Laalaa's christmas swap and yesterday I collected my parcel from the Post Office and couldn't wait to get it home so I could have a peek inside.

Ow isn't it lovely opening parcels, especially when you don't know what's inside, these gorgeous goodies are what  Annie sent me.

a lovely hand painted "soldier" a christmas cat to stitch, some lovely tree decs made from the solftest felt and...the cutest card holder with a glass tree and reindeer....I love it.

And I have just the right card to display on it, there was also some candy canes but sadly they dissapeared last night while I was knitting!! ahem.

Thanks Annie. x

Here's my parcel to Annie,

a stocking filled with lavender, a fairy with apple spices, a plate for mince pies, a christmas stamp, brooch, soap and a sun catcher hope annie was as pleased with her parcel as I was.

A couple of weeks ago I joined a christmas craft class where Doreen makes the most lovely things

I've started to make a wreath like this one, it's quite fiddly stitching on all the beads, I've stitched two hearts only another 8 to go!!

Doreen must have  spent hours and hours stitching these if only mine were half as good I'd be a happy bunny, practice makes perfect and all that!!
