Once they were complete, I began stitching a Bronwyn Hayes one, which is a free download from her blog. Unfortunately I didn't get very far with this as I fell asleep in my chair and woke up about 11.30 pm with the needle still in my hand.

Thank you Wendy for hosting our last FNSI for the year. I have really enjoyed being part of them this year.
Also this week I got to open my Santa Sack Swap parcel from my partner, Lyn (no blog) hosted by Cheryll from Gone Stitchin. THANK YOU Cheryll for another great swap.
On Thursday night, I got to open my parcel from Lyn. I was very spoilt with all my beautiful gifts.
Thank you so much Lyn, I love all of them. Below are some photos of what I received.
|My beautiful tote which contained the parcels below.|
|They contained a Xmas apron, an ornament mug rug and gorgeous mug, a Rudolph stitchery in a frame, a beautifully stitched wall hanging, a Christmas Goose bag complete with handle and filled with chocolates.|
|2 bird tree ornaments and a stitched and painted star Santa.|
A big THANK YOU to Lyn. You have made me very very happy as these gifts are so me.
Lyn has opened my parcel also and here is what I sent to her.
|Lyn wanted a stocking so here is Santa beside some parcels.|
|The stocking had a couple of small parcels inside (above and below this photo)|

Some of my family can't be here on Wednesday so today we are getting together for our first Xmas Day. Then we will celebrate our second Christmas Day on the 25th so as well as that, Chris and I can celebrate our birthdays twice too. Only adding 1 year to our age though.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.
