Christmas Mail :o)

The Xmas Elf visited yesterday
and left me these
and now I would like to share with you what was inside two of them :)
The wonderful Claire was given my name for
 12" Christmas Mini in Cheryll's Mini Club
and this is the beautiful mini that she has made just for me :)

It is a Rosalie Quinlan design and Claire's stitching is PERFECT

It is proudly on display in our entrance and I am planning on purchasing
another stand so that after Christmas I can move it to the formal lounge room
and have it displayed full time.

Claire also include a tea towel and some
Marshmallow Santa's for each of my children.

They were a huge hit :o)
Thank you so much Claire for everything.
In other crafting news, I have started sewing on the 90,
yes 90 buttons on my Merry Merry Snowman Quilt.

6 down 84 to go!
I want this up on the wall by the 1st ... I have better get a move on.
and here is the contents of one of the other parcels.
it is from Shez but it comes with instructions not to open it until
the 1st .......  roll on Saturday and thank you so much Shez.
hugs, Sharon
