Christmas came early for me this year!

The past six months I have swapped gifts with a new internet friend--Sandy from Ohio in the SANTA SACK SWAP.  Each month we sent two wrapped gifts to each other and they were put in a specially made "sack" and told not to peek!!   We could open them yesterday and this is what I got.

Sandy did a fantastic job of choosing gifts for me!  I absolutely love the mug rug with the coffee cup.  I don't drink coffee, but I love tea AND hot cocoa.  So cute.  And the purse and table topper are just gorgeous!  She sent some charm packs and fat quarters so I can sew up something new, some sewing tools, the cutest ear rings, footies, an assortment of BEST PRESS, a wonderful cookie cookbook, and the neatest framed pin cushion, so clever.

This was definitely a fun swap!  Not often do we mothers/grandmothers get many gifts.  At least I don't.  And we got to open them early so we could actually enjoy them at the time.  Thanks go to Cheryl at Gone Stitchin' for organizing such fun for all of us.  And, Sandy, thank you very much for everything you sent!


  1. You are right Linda... it's nice to be spoiled once in awhile isn't it! Lovely lot of goodies in your sack by the look of it!
    Thanks for playing along and I hope to see you again in 2012.
    Merry Christmas from your swap mama :)

  2. It's like being kids again & being overwhelmed by so many pressies. It's great the internet has opened up this world to us where we can spoil each other & make Christmas extra special & come at least twice in December. Love the mugrug & matching mug. Merry Christmas. Tracee xx
