KERST Swap - sent and received...........

Very kindly Katrien hosted the KERST swap once again.........this is my second year participating.......you have to make/send gifts from the letters of KERST (Christmas) in dutch.....

below are the gifts I sent to Frederika in Norway
Most of the girls live in Netherlands or Norway you can see the list of participants here
It is difficult for me to work out words to translate to dutch with the correct letters........but google translate makes it so much easier.................
Frederika shared a post here with these gifts..........
K - kruissteek (cross stitch), kaarten (cards)
E - engel (angel)
R - Rode draad en stitchery (red thread and stitchery)
S- schrijfblok(writing pad), sleutelhanger (keyfob)
T - tafelloper (tablerunner)

I can't find my pics of this runner so I got this pic from Frederika's blog
&&&&&
Below are the presents that Bizzy Martine in Netherlands sent to me...........
K - kaars (candle)
E - engel (angel)
R - rendier (reindeer)
S -
T-
I am not sure the correct words  in Dutch for the last 2 presents a mug rug and stitchery wall hanging.
She got her friend to design this stitchery just for me..............how special........I have a bigger pic below so you can see it better......Martine and I have been blog friends for many years now..............
I do love my international swaps...............
thanks so much for my gifts Martine and thanks once again to Katrien for organising the swap........I am so pleased to be able to participate............
Catch you later
