Christmas Swap Delivered...

Last week I showed what I recieved in my package and now that it has been delivered I can show what I sent to Nicola in the Handmade Christmas swap hosted by Heart in the Country - A Christmas bucket - entirely constructed from recycled or gifted materials - oh yeah, I filled it with some little gifts too... A crocheted snowflake decoration to hang on the tree,
Some sewing essentials - the pouch had the chocolates inside (they are sewing essentials) although Nicola tells me they didn't last that long.
Because it is winter there, they even have snow, I made this knitted scarf/collar out of a super soft mohair mix with just a little sparkle - it was hard to part with this, lucky I have enough yarn to make something similar for myself!
There was also a treat each for Nicola's little people. She is happy with her package.
Only 4 sleeps and counting - hope you are ready!
Happy Creating

Beautiful dolls and great swap items - how lucky your partner to get you!!! I LOVE the crocheted snowflake and the scissor holder - maybe I can talk you into doing a private swap with me for these two items, sometime in 2010??? :)
