Now before we start the photos are shocking. It was so dark yesterday and I still can’t fathom out what to do with the camera to take better shots, although I am going to find the tripod out next time to get some clearer pictures. But it’s not going to effect the light. Oh well, I will resign myself to accepting I was never meant to be a good photographer!
Yesterday the postman rang the doorbell and delivered me a wonderful surprise. I signed up for the Stocking Full o’Cheer swap and yay my partner Elaine, who lives in the US , sent me a delightful box of goodies.
I love post and I love even more boxes with surprises in them.
The stocking is beautiful, and as expected the camera doesn’t show it well. Elaine’s has used silver thread to blanket stitch around the edge and the little angel even has a silver wire halo. The work gone into it is incredible – I hope she isn’t too disappointed in the one I made her!
Inside the stocking were some gifts – all wrapped….
(I realise now that I didn’t photograph what was inside this tube – but there was a large pile of paper – all different sorts, to be used in any number of craft projects)
Elaine makes charms and there was this cute charm with a boy sledging and then this cute one below which will be a sweet keepsake.
So THANKYOU so much – it was a lovely swap to be involved with and Elaine you have made such beautiful things. Happy Christmas!
