Last night, I picked up a parcel on my way up to Exeter to an evening of sewing, socializing, and a great Potluck supper at "Quilts and Calicos." When I got home last night, I was so tired that I didn't open the parcel, I thought I would leave it until morning. Well, it was a good job that I did that because if I had opened it before I went to bed, I would not have been able to sleep....LOL.
Nancy from and I were swap partners in the "Olde Fashioned Christmas" swap organized by Char. Funny enough, Nancy and I were also partners in the "Harvest Swap". We were actually excited that we were paired up again! In fact I almost feel like we are related now..LOL. Seeing I don't have a wide angle lense on my digital camera, I had to take several pictures to get it all in. Nancy sent me a beautiful handwritten Christmas Card, Christmas napkins, several tree ornaments, a handmade Santa ornie, a Candy Cane ornie, a beautiful handmade crow make-do and a Christmas Tree make-do. A Cardinal and snowmen lamp which is absolutely gorgeous and a handmade pincushion and a jar of her homemade Salsa.
