Back in September Katrien posted about a swap she was hosting........Dutch translations need to come in here as Kerstruil - Christmas Swap. I was the only Australian girl and the other participants are from Belgium, Netherlands, Norway. Most of the girls blogs I have to translate as they only write in their language.
You had to include a present from each letter of the word KERST.
Bit challenging and saw me going to google translate thinking of things to send/make and seeing what they translated too and if it was a letter for the word K E R S T.
I was unsure who the parcel had come from as I didn't think i had a card and nothing identified the sender on the parcel. But late on Christmas eve I found a card while cleaning up and discovered it was from swap partner Katrien. It must have got seperated from the parcel when i pulled the presents out.
These are the goodies that Katrien sent to me.
kerstsokjes - Christmas socks (stocking ornaments now hanging on the tree)
kaarsjes - candles
engel - angel
rood - red (thread)
rolmeter - tape measure (pink ribbon is actually a tape measure)
roze - pink (DMC thread)
speldenkussen - pincushion
schaar - scissors
(and scissor holder)
tasjes - bag
a little zipper purse bag and a strawberry fold up carry bag
Wow what wonderful gifts I have received..............thanks so much Katrien. It has been such a fun swap and i can't wait to go and see what the other girls have received in the swap too.
Everyone is going to do a post on 26th Dec.
Catch you later..............
