SSCS Receved........

finally i've got a chance, the stars were aligned so to speak............time, photos, charged laptop, 
Now onto my gorgeous Secret Santa Christmas Swap (SSCS) parcel...........
I shared the lovely ornament Marika @ My Little Quilt and Stitchery Life from Germany sent me in my last post............
This gorgeous little quilt will be hung on the wall in the Chookshed.............I want to have a mini quilt wall and I have a few plans in the making but nothing really to put up yet so this will be the first one.............i'm so excited.............
Here you can see the stitching at the top......."A house without quilts is like a sky without stars"...........Marika even quilted some clouds into the sky............
Also she added this little pincushion/clip holder.......what a great idea to keep these little clips.............I love them and keep losing them in the bottom of the sewing containers so to be able to clip them onto the pincushion will be great.........she also added some lovely threads.............thanks so much Marika...........I love my parcel and now I will try and catch up on all your SSCS posts.............so many gorgeous gifts sent out............
&&&&
Just a meer 42 degrees today...............glad to have a swim in the pool and hide indoors in the air con to stay cool...........
Catch you later.......
