Chooky's Secret Santa Christmas Swap

For the past few years I participated in Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap and I have just signed up to do it all again this year!!   It is such fun to gather together something special for someone who I may not even know and bless them at Christmas with a special handmade gift and decoration.    So .... I'm looking forward to seeing who my Secret Swap partner is this time ....   my creative thinking cap is on already !!

Sharon from Lillabelle Lane has created this little button to put onto your blog so those who comment don't have to go through that silly word verification business!!  Thanks Sharon .. from all of us frustrated bloggers with bad eyesight who spend hours trying to make out numbers!!  Well done!!  You can go to Sharon's blog to download the button, or copy from the picture below!!

This weeks project is this lovely embroidered purse complete with zipper and lining .... here is my version which has been stitched with variegated blue/green threads ....

And this is Sylvia's version which has been worked in various muted DMC threads!
