Secret santa Swap

My stitching group held a secret santa Swap this Christmas. My partner was and I stiched this cushion for her, it is a Lizzie Kate chart "Friendship begins with kindness".
Here is the full swap.

In return I was delighted to receive from Barbara this host of delightful goodies. I have to say that the scarf and teacosy are most welcome, she also sent a lovely fabric bundle, threads and a book.

Thank you Barbara.

That swap was lots of fun and I hope everyone liked what they received. I know I did. Your gifts to Heidi were very appreciated I know and Barbara sent you wonderful items. I have a little book like that from her and I love it. The tea cozy is great and the scarf too.

Heidi said...

Well, I can say as the receiver of your gift that is was WONDERFUL!!! I hope you got my email I sent way back when I opened it? I love each and every gift but will cherish my pillow handmade by you. Thank you.

Your gifts from Barbara are wonderful. They say keep warm and cozy don't they? A tea cozy and scarf are just right for the winter.

Hugs ~

The pillow you did for Heidi is so sweet and the things that went with it are so HEIDI! Great job, Clare.
