I must be on Santa's good list because the last couple of weeks have bought me very happy mail.

First my dear friend Cheryl sent me a box full of goodies.


Two of the sweetest decorations I have ever seen..wait there's more..


Beautiful fabric from the new French General range (yes my favourite designer) and a pretty soap.

Two bags of my favourite treats.  Thank you dear friend you did spoil me.
But Happy mail didn't stop there I then received from Barb this adorable ornament.  I just love the stitching on it and Reindeer are my favourite.
Then Michelle sent me an envelope and inside was this really pretty stocking and gingy pattern, thanks Michelle I love them both.
My last envelope came from Maria and she was kind enough to send me one of her beautiful coasters,
Love the Santa and it looks too good to put a coffee cup on.
A big thank you to my dear blogging friends you did make me feel very special with all your kindness.

Sometimes it's the simple gifts that kids love the most.
I came out from the pantry today to find my beautiful grand daughter sitting waiting patiently...
She just loves this hat that gorgeous Peg from Happy In Quilting sent me in our FHFS swap.  The little rings come off the hat and you get to throw them and try and catch them on the hat.  We have sat and played with it for funny...I'm just grateful the rings are nice and soft otherwise I may have lost and eye lol.
Thanks Peg she is loving it.

I am lucky enough to be a part of an online stitching group and today this arrived at my house..
This huge box of wonderful.  It is a secret swap and you didn't know who your partner was until the box arrived but I am a super sleuth of epic proportion and a couple of months ago I figured out that my swap partner was the gorgeous Peg from Happy In Quilting..
Each parcel is wrapped in beautiful brown paper and a card..
Cute right....
So I off to unwrap...
Will show you the goodies later..

I will miss you my dear friend for as long as I live.

How sad to think Friday was the last FNWF for the year.  Thank you for hosting Cheryll so nice for everyone to get together and share.
I worked on a Santa...he got arms..
And a body...
He is a gift so I really did work very hard.
And then just because I could I made 2 more girls...
Hope you had a wonderful Friday night and are doing something special this weekend.
