The day finally came to open my swap. The swap was organised by http://santasackswap.blogspot.com.au/ I was partnered with Jo of https://jobutterfield.blogspot.com.au/ Jo is amazing with all the sewing and knitting that she does. She even sews laundry bags for soldiers. Check out her blog.Look a whole box of pressies for me! I was so excited. Alycia and Cassandra helped me to unwrap the gifts. We all got a massive buzz opening all of the items. Jo, you are amazing. The first item is this really cute bear pin cushion. Isnt it adorable?My next favourite items are the jar covers. Wow, they look really time consuming to make. They are beautiful, I just want to look at them.Jo, stacked them on top of a jar that was filled with cardboard blackboard tags with some white chalk. I can see these lining up in my pantry. If you have a pattern for these I would love to make some for my friends. I am too selfish to share these because I like them too much.Here is a lovely pastel coloured bag that folds into a smaller little bag as seen in the following picture. Jo even sewed my initial on the front.You do amazing work, Jo.I love these face cloths. The yellow one even has my initial on it. They are so soft and colourful. Thank you for all of your work.This is one amazing Christmas decoration. It looks very complicated. A lovely and unique addition to our Christmas tree.In this little sack is some hot chocolate, mini m&ms, and mini marshmallows in little tubes, very cute.A bottle cover that matches the bag. It is insulted too! A lovely little cross stitch card to work on.Here is a creepy photo of Cassandra smelling the yummy chocolates. They didn’t last long with 6 in the house and two visitors. Saying that we all got a couple each, so thank you.Thank you once again, Jo. I am very thankful for everything that you made for me. It has also been good getting to know you a bit. You are a woman on a mission.
