My Elf was SOOOOOO Good to Me! Plus a Give Away…..

I opened my Christmas in July Swap gifts this morning - I couldn't stand it any more!  Look at how neatly these were wrapped - and all with a handmade tag.
My kind Elf, Carol-Ann, sent these goodies:
A wooden NOEL door hanger, the tiniest, sweetest angel ornament (how did you do that, Carol-Ann??), a lovely 12 Days of Christmas Mug Rug and scrumptious chocolates.  (I had to snap the picture fast, because the chocolates have a short life in this house - HA!).  PLUS a little pattern from Freckles & Company - from right here in Iowa!

Thank you, Thank you, Carol-Ann.  I love it all.

OH!  Anna doesn't have a blog, but she shared her gifts from lovely Kaye at Kitten Stitching.
Anna's Elf (aka, Kaye) delivered her parcel personally.  It turns out they had lost touch with each other and have rekindled their friendship.  Isn't that wonderful?  (I feel like a fairy godmother ;)).

Looking forward to seeing all the gifts - stay tuned for a link tomorrow so we can all share our good fortune.

P.S.  There are a few who haven't received their parcels yet.  I know they have been sent and are coming from overseas.  Keep a watch out for your mail man…..hopefully the goodies will arrive shortly.

OH!  Pop over to Victorian Motto Sampler - she's having a fabulous give away to celebrate her birthday!!

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
