Advent Swap Day 1 & 2

Isn't it exciting, we are now in December and it's advent time!


I'm delighted that I took part in Lynda's swap this year and my lovely swap partner and friend Lynda has sent me an amazing pile of goodies!


I hope to be able to post as often as possible to share the goodies and I'm loving reading everyone's blogs to see what was sent and received.  I am tweeting my advent gift every day too.

Yesterday I opened this delightful little keyring, it was stuffed with a mulled wine scent and it's delightfully Christmassy!


Today I opened these beauties!  I have been dipping my toes in quilting recently and  these are right up my street,


Did I mention that every single parcel comes with a chocolate - perfect!




I know just which one I will start first...


When I visited Just Quilting recently I fell in love with this cushion I spotted in the back room. 


 The lovely owner helped me to pick out fabrics to make this and I have them stashed away ready to use, how amazing is it that Lynda bought me the pattern I needed to make it!

Thanks again honey I'm delighted.

I didn't note down which gift I sent for Lynda for which day so I am watching her blog to see what I sent.
One of the makes I did send that Lynda has opened was this cross stitch tree, very simple style and in only one colour,


I wanted one myself but it took so long to make I couldn't face doing it again - maybe next year...

What a great swap idea! A parcel for every day; that would be so exciting! (A lot of work to organise but fun too I imagine) I love the little robin keyring

Your blog is an absolute delight to visit. I just adore it. I don't get time to leave comments very often - but I do come to see you lots.

I'm so glad you're liking your gifts. You deserve some daily loveliness. I knew you'd like that Christmas Forest pattern. I bought one for myself too but I can't find mine. Gggrr! I'd love a cushion with it on. I hadn't thought of that, which is odd for me, isn't it as I make everything into a cushion! xx
