Santa Sack Swap Reveal

After 5 months of stressing over this one - stitching, sewing, getting in a dither, wrapping, ribboning and eventually making it to the post office, and then poking, proding, smelling and squeezing the ones sent to me by Noela, the day is finally here - Cheryl says we can open our Santa Sack Pressies. YIPPEE!
 The presents were all labeled so I knew which one was the Santa Sack so I decided to open that one first.  A squeal of joy escaped my lips when I opened it up......Isn't it gorgeous!

And this special added touch of my initial for a tag.........LOVE IT!

What next.......ooh, the excitement.......one for the sewing room (it says on the label)

inside was a notebook, some scissors, yummy fabric, pretty green buttons and a mug mat......just my colours!

I feel like a child on Christmas morning......ripping apart one present.....impatient to get to the next. I am however forcing myself to slow down and take the necessary photos of each parcel. Ready for another one....I am!

Something Smelly.............at last I could discover what that lovely scent was filling my nostrils everytime I walked past these wrapped presents. I am thinking I will pop this into one of my closet drawers......sublime!

Yet another one to unwrap......something for the tree

two lovely ornaments for the tree.  One is a silver present shape with a dangly crystal and the other is beautifully hand stitched and cleverly made into an ornament. Noela, I am overwhelmed....so lovely.

I am left with three more pressies. One says "somenthing to read", another "somehting to eat" and the 3rd, "something for the kitchen".  I am choosing to open the first two on Christmas morning which leaves somehting for the kitchen.
A lovely tea towel, a coaster that looks like an oversized button...LOL....and a ham bag (thats clever thinking).

Thank You Noela, I am so very delighted with all my sweet presents.  And a big thankyou to swap mama, Cheryl......you are the bomb, Cheryl!
