It is a Happy Christmas from him and a Merry Christmas from him


This is just a quick note (well knowing me it probably will not be quick or a note).
Ollie in his favourite chair with his friend!Just waiting for Santa.

I have been so blessed with lovely friendships I have formed since using this "confuser"thing, and have been overwhelmed with the kindness shown I just thought you may like to see some of the goodies I have received in the last few days .Only one person said no opening till the 25th so hee hee I opened these .
First but really in no particular order is the Package I received from Karan along with one of her beautiful homemade cards. I have had these in my "to get"list for a while and was delighted when Karan sent them to me, they are LHN charts.
Daisy Lane Cottage,and Lavender Hill. Thanks Karan.

Next I had a total surprise from Karen (different spelling) a needleminder from Kelmscott with lily of the valley on it. Thankyou for that Karen I will endeavour not to lose this one , the one of these I had must have fallen in the bin that I keep by my chair and it got thrown away complete with needles -so how did you know I needed another.


Next my Irish friend Anne sent me this parcel and gosh all these little red parcels jumped out with little messages in gold on them.


Also in this parcel was 2 bars of Black and Greens Chocolate which Martin and I shared. Then there was this and oh its just great.

Well it has sheep on it lol.
I haven't tried these threads before so that will be a first.
I loved the little robin ornie and the stocking and needlecase, I was a lucky girl. Of course I still have Julies to open tomorrow.
This week I had a message from Jayne of Jaynes Attic saying she needed my addy. Jayne took part in RAK exchange at the beg of the year but due to circumstances she did not get round to sending anything, So this morning the postman delivered this one for each month Jan,Feb and March.


I havent done it twice its front and back view.That was January

These little tins were for Feb (heart tin very apt)
March were these charts I just love that Carriage House one,the hardanger one may take a bit of courage in both hands.

Jayne had also made a very pretty card.
I really dont think I need Santa to come tonight as I am more than happy with my goodies. Thankyou to those who read my blog and I will speak again after the day off tomorrow. Hope your Christmas festivities are peaceful and happy. Take care
Hugs Barb

Lots of lovely gifts there Barb. Fab RAK from Jayne too - the biscornu & floss tag are beautiful (wasn't that good of her to remember & fulfil!). Love the pic of Ollie & Santa. Glad you had a good festive season. :0)
