the 25th

Have I got some Christmas Items to show you!
My parcel arrived in WA at Lisa's house which meant we could open our parcels.
She was happy with my goodies which I really enjoyed making for her.
So for today I am going to show the lovely gifts I received.
Lisa put together the most perfect gifts I was ghasping as I was unwrapping. Well unwrapping is an inaccurate description, more like ripping unceremoniously I'd say. I didn't even get a pic of the wrapped gifties I was so excited.
Be warned there are lots of pics.
Roll the film please...

christmas decorations-gorgeous tilda fabric birds

postcard

stitchery-this was Lisa's first attempt at stitchery.

christmas stocking-how cute is that teddy

christmas tag

a small kit to make something

applique wall hanging

candlemat

something to eat
 And the final magnificent gift!!
A Tilda angel doll. I have so wanted one of these forever.(but am too challenged to make one, those skinny arms and legs seem so hard to make)
Isn't she wonderful. She even has a little crown on her head.
I absolutely love everything. Thanks so much Lisa you have made me such beautiful goodies!
I know Christmas is here a little early but it is in keeping with my early decorating.
Only one month to go!
Be back in a few days to show what I sent to Lisa
cheers

Lisa said...

These are so gorgeous, and I am in love with the doll. I know what you mean about them being way too hard to make as I have a certain friend who tells me they are really easy - with a shrug of her shoulders. This makes me feel all Christmassy.
