I collected this package of goodies - Yes, this is what I was greeted with when I opened the box.
I'm not sure I want to disturb them they are so festively arranged.
These are my Christmas Angel swap gifts from Sandi (no blog).
(I am saving them for Christmas, so far I just smile every time I see that gorgeous arrangement)
I have of course still been opening a little, or not so little package from Gai each day, in the Advent Swap and that has been very fun. This week a pack of Christmas cards (must write some of those out), a ham bag, a thread catcher and some embroidery floss, three silver baubles - they remind me of the old disco mirror ball. Thanks Gai.
(I got a little confused, the Santa nd reindeer ornaments are from the first week - I am missing a cute Santa candle holder with candle - Oops!)
I have been doing a little knitting this week and am onto the foot of the second brown sock.
These are simple anklet socks with a lace pattern in the fold down and rib for the remainder of the sock.
(They're not quite the same, so I may have to keep them for me after all.)
I made a space today for a little decorating and put up my tree.
The little guy is from my Advent swap goodies this week and does a little song and dance (wobble) routine - He sings 'Santa Baby'. Perfect really.
Santa got hung too, I have no clue who the designer was on this one. I brought the design printed on fabric sometime in the nineties, stitched in back stitch.. I dated it 2000, obviously a long term project. Ha ha.
He says - Believe in the Magic of Christmas.
Hope your weekend includes time for celebrating and stitching.
