Lovely time ahead ..........

Here it is:the SSCS envelope has arrived. It arrived yesterday all the way from Sandy in Australia.
My second year with Chookyblue in this super Christmas gift swap,and I just love it:o)My little Gch,Eline,wanted to put
my 2 new Seminole table runners on the ground so the envelope would not be dirty!! The big light there is reflective on her jacket so that the cars may see her in the dark.
One parcel to be opened right away,that`s the ornament. The other one to be put under the Christmas tree and opened on X-mas Eve.
A lovely Santa-ornament,beautifully stitched,love the heart buttons as well as the jingle bells(laying there on the "jingle all the way" fabric:the backing of one of my table runners!).

Thanking you ever so much,Sandy.
