There's that time management thingy again....!

I do hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful holiday! Was Santa good to you? I sure hope so! I don't know about you, but I ate enough for a few months! lol

This year, I participated in a couple of Holiday swaps. One from Chookyblue Secret Santa and another for a primitive Folk Art Quilting Group that I belong too.

Today I'll show you my goodies from the Secret Santa Swap.

My Secret Santa was Alison from Cardygirl.

She sent me the cutest wool ornament. Isn't that little angel just so sweet? I love it!

As a matter of fact, I love it so much that I decided that I was going to actually attempt to work with wool.

Yep, it's my New Years resolution! Well, I have others, but no need to get into it now! ;o)

This gorgeous bag was another gift!

It is absolutely stunning. I love hand embroidery.

Alison's hand work is exquisite!

Inside the bag, was this sweet pincushion. Isn't it just the cutest?!?

I love her fabric choices! The colours are so cheerful!

Thank you again Alison for the wonderful goodies! And thank you Donna for hosting this swap!

Cheers!
