My Christmas Swap Goodies

Merry Christmas to me!!!! As you all know I hosted a Christmas swap last month. My first partner was Kim from Simple Needs. I have to tell her I am very sorry I did not get this posted sooner as I didn't find it on my porch until Sunday morning then worked yesterday and had a Christmas choir concert last night. I worked until late on Saturday night and of course no one else in my family noticed there was a box sitting next to my front door. GRRRR... and it rained all night and I don't have a porch. I just happened to walk outside Sunday morning to check the weather and lo and behold a box. I brought it in and tore into it. The individually wrapped presents just kept coming. Kim really spoiled me. She also knows my taste well.

So check out how lucky I was....


The first part of the swap was to send one yard on fabric to our partner. Kim made me this fabulous colonial inspired doll. Her dress is the fabric I sent and Kim added a beautiful black cape a wreath to her. I think she will be going on top of my tree when I get off of the computer.



Next was this ditty bag filled with provisions I would need before my Mother could get to me riding on the wagon train. LOL I know you are all thinking what the heck???? In this ditty bag was some buttons,a thimble, wool, pipe tobacco, and thread and a note that Kim came up with that sounds like it was written in the 1800s from a Mother to her Daughter. Great idea KIM!!!! Then of course the birds made from my fabric. I don't have any of these so these were a fabulous choice to put on my shelves.



Next was a Goodwill find redo... LOVE the shelf!!!!



Next was also the fabric I sent as a background for this awesome stitchery... a these warm gloves with snowflakes stitched on wool then stitched to the gloves. I don't know whether to wear them or decorate with them they are so cute!!!!



The last part was a free for all... And boy did Kim nail my tastes on this!!!! She also sent me a Christmas CD Joy To The World a Reader's Digest Series which I forgot to take a picture of because as soon as I got it out of the box it went into the CD player.







Kim also sent me a recipe for biscuits that Steve keeps bugging me to make. He says they sound delicious. I'll let you know how they turn out. LOL

Now can you tell why I was so spoiled? So Thank You Kim I LOVE everything.

Now off to work I just got called in on my vacation day.
