Christmas gifts

 Well Christmas is over for another year, it comes around so quickly then its over in the blink of an eye. My parents came to visit us for a few days just before christmas, We had a lovely time with them.
 Mum hadn't seen my boys for quite some time so of course they had grown ALOT. I'm sure its all that wonderful baking I do for them every week. lol
 I received some beautiful gifts, My on line stitching group has a secret santa every year and this year Sarah was my santa.  Wow is what I said every time I opened a gift from Sarah, she made me some beautiful goodies, Look at the gorgeous tilda purse. I plan to use it for my tea bags, I only drink decaf tea so I tend to take tea bags with me wherever I go. They will be stylish won't they.

 Sarah made me this sweet spools mini quilt and included some much loved tilda treats. I can't wait to cut into those charm squares.
 That little clam shell is just the cutest.
 All these goodies were tucked into this amazing bag, Its designed by Bonnie of Cotton way and its for all my sewing goodies on the go. When I go to sewing days I can keep my projects in it. I LOVE it.
 Sarah even made the cutest zipper pull with my initial.
 Sarah sure did spoil me, thankyou so much my friend, you made my christmas even more special. xx
 I also joined Chookyblues secret santa and my gift was sent all the way from Norway, My partner was Laila and she made me a beautiful mini quilt called Norway. Its beautifully made in Tilda fabrics, Laila also sent some pretty tilda fabrics and buttons and thread.
 Thankyou so much Laila, everything is so lovely.
oops this photos wasn't supposed to be last but its here now as I don't know how to fix it and my in house  I.T.  son is busy. Its the inside of the beautiful bag when you open the zippers, there is clear pouch and a pin cushion, thats under all the ribbon. Such a clever idea.

Well thats a few of my christmas gifts, I hope you all had a wonderful  Christmas.

Take care.  xx

Nice family-pictures. I'm sure you had a good time with your parents. The Tilda quilt from Norway is beautiful.It's like a big grid from crosstitch or pixels. I'd like to make a big rose like that with crochet granny squares.
