The Chookyblue Secret Santa Swap...


Today I opened the parcel which my swap buddy Isabel sent me; the parcel which, for a number of weeks, has been sitting under our Christmas tree and I've been wondering about what was inside! lol.
Isabel had written inside that she had made me a knitting needle case...how pretty is that fabric???it's beautiful!
Undo the clips and open the case up...
Fold back the side flaps of this stylish case...
All those 'pockets' that would be perfect for circular needles...
This is how I've been storing my circular needle sets as they don't fit very well into the traditional 'roll' type needle case...yes the old ziplock plastic bag!

Now look at the needles...perfect! And there are still some pockets to fill :-)

Thank you Isabel, for my lovely gift...I shall treasure it!

Hi Maria. Hope you had a lovely Christmas Day. I was over with the family at Jindalee and boy was it hot out there. But lovely to spend it with family and friends.
My allotted job was the trifle so I made sure it was a magnificent creature. All in colourful layers until the serving spoon went in of course.
I just love the knitting needle case you blogged about today. What a lovely thing to own. So useful and such a joy to use. Enjoy the rest of your holiday season.
