My SSCS gift :)

002

Yesterday on Christmas Eve (before we went to my nephew for celebrating Christmas with my family) I opened my SSCS gift.  It is several years that I joined Donnas SSCS, but this year I decided to join.  And I am so happy I did.  My Secret Santa was Dawnie.

003

And look what she had made for me!   I adore this sewing bag. She even made the appliqued quilt lady look like me SmilefjesAnd I love the fabrics she have used.

This bag is amazing.  Look at all the pockets inside the bag. (LOL  Perhaps hard to see at this photo, but they are there)

And inside some of the pockets I found a lot of quilt goodies.  Thank you Dawnie, you have made me so happy and I will for sure use this bag.  Actually I have already put my stitchery project in it.

PS:  Did I mention I adore this sewing bag Smilefjes

The lady I was a Secret Santa for was Annie in Australia, and this is what I made for her.

She has a beautiful garden so I had to choose fabrics with flowers.  I made her a toilet purse, a felt pincushion with flowers and also added a stitchery and some embroidery thread.  Hope she likes what I sendt her.

And as Christmas ornaments I chrochet some Christmas hearts for her.  And I know she loved them.  Have to make some more for myself because they look very pritty on the Christmas tree.

I got a lot of other lovely quilty Christmas presents yesterday, but that’s another post.

Saying for today:

Gifts of time and love
are surely the basic ingredients
of a truly merry Christmas.
