Christmas Cheer!

I have now received my gift in Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap - all the way from Deb in Ontario Canada!   Thankyou Deb so much - I have only opened the little decoration and here it is - it is just gorgeous and all held together with tiny safety pins!!   The rest of my gifts will go under the tree (when we get one tomorrow) and wait patiently for Christmas Day!  

I received another beautifully made decoration this week from Shirley - onto the tree tomorrow too!!

And Norma has blessed me with this beautifully made little bag - to be used as a pincushion I think!

And Jenny made me some cute little Christmas baubles with beads and sequins - will there be enough room on my tree??

And I was fortunate to win this cute little Christmas Elf in our gift swap at Needlework!  

Another package arrived this week - with the latest issue of "Vignette"!!   This I love!!

I love the centre blocks for the Vignette in Stitches quilt - not that I'm up to the centre blocks yet!!

And I loved this thought - "May your heart be full of love and your home full of happiness" !!    And even though for most of you the next week will be a little bit hectic (if you are anything like me) ... try and take time to smell the roses and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas!!  xx
