Secret Santa Christmas Swap 2013 - sent and received..............

I made for Annik in Norway in the Secret Santa Christmas Swap..............
This is what I sent to her..............A Natalie Bird Red Home bag and a table runner.............the table runner pattern is available here for a donation to Cystic Fibrosis
a full pic of the table runner...............
and my ornament..................I wanted to put a wooden star button in the centre but it was missing when I went to get it and shops are not close so it missed the star button..................
Now for who sent to me..................I was totally spoilt.........
Karol Ann @ Sew Kalico in the UK sent to me...........
well all these goodies were wrapped in parcels in the stocking.............
needle book, little zipper purse, tissues, key fob..........
Karol Ann made hats for herself and her Mum when they went to the tennis in summer............the hats are reversible
Fairy Girl modeled mine for me..........
She even included a parcel for Fairy Girl..........needle book and tissues in this little pouch.........
not the best pic but this is on a coat hanger........so I will hang it in my cupboard for stocking or the like to keep them together...........
And this wonderful bag.........it made it a bit heavier fabric.............a great size..........
and she even stitched my name on it................how special.................
just a reminder of the ornaments she sent to me.........
thanks so much Karol Ann for the goodies you sent to me.............love it all............
thanks to everyone for being part of the swap I am hoping to have the pics up in the next day or so of all the gifts exchanged........
I am really behind in checking out all your posts too but it's been a little hectic and stressful here so have not had time to get around yet........BUT I will get there....promise.......
Catch you later

  14. Lovely gifts flying both ways in your house. Karol Ann sent me gifts a couple of years ago and I too was spoilt. I'm sure your hat will get lots of use in the warm (read stinking hot) weather.
