My Secret Santa Christmas Swap arrived from Australia! All I can say is WOW! Here's a picture of the ornament portion of the gift:
The goodies that were stashed inside the stocking:
Wow!!! Talk about being spoiled!! And I have to laugh that the needles are marked as self-threading! I noticed right away this summer when I picked up my sewing again, the eyes on ALL of my needles had shrunk considerably in the 5 years they were neglected. I didn't know they could do that! I used to be able to thread the needles without any effort - now it takes glasses, a bright light, and a bit of luck. These needles give me hope!
All these goodies - and I still haven't opened the main gift! It's paper suffered a bit from its travels, so it's still in the mailer. My sweetie is going to tape up the holes so it's ready when we get our tree Saturday. Wow... a huge thanks to my currently mysterious swap buddy!!!
