Swaps fun!

One of the swaps that I signed up for was the Advent Swap organised by Cat at Catalina's Cottage.  My swap partner was Cheryl and she has certainly been spoiling me :-) Each day up to Christmas Eve I have a parcel to open and on December 25 there is a special parcel! So without further ado, I'll now show you the goodies I've received so far....

Day 1. I love that ribbon...'no peeking'...

 And this was in that parcel. Isn't it cute? Love the details...a beautiful piece!


Sunday morning, December 2...what could be better? The newspaper, a piece of toast, a cup of tea...and a parcel to open :-)


3 lovely fat quarters...



Day 3...and this time there was a lovely bookmark inside the parcel. All beautifully sewn and certainly very special...




On Day 4 Cheryl had sent me a lovely  table centre which featured hand embroidered eyelet work... very nice!




On day 5, the parcel was very flat... and inside was a beautiful reproduction block showing a very elegant Santa. I googled the web address on the block and saw lots of similar blocks. I had never heard of this site so it was great fun discovering it :-)




Day 6 was today and there lots of 'wows! and how beautiful' when I opened this parcel. It was a Christmas panel in some of my favourite colours...clever Cheryl :-)


So you can see what I mean when I say that I have been spoiled! Thank you so much, Cheryl, it's certainly lots of fun unwrapping these parcels from you. And we still have lots to go! lol

My goodness you certainly are spoiled to have all those amazing gifts! You fully deserve them though as you are a very generous person yourself!

Glad you are enjoying your parcels Maria as much as I am enjoying mine. I'm glad there's still a few days left - I'm enjoying my morning ritual
