I was invited to take part in a secret santa swap organised by Miss Elf aka Donna from Chookyblue for Christmas this year. I received my secret parcel this week all the way from Norway. Thank you May K for your generous gifts!! Lots of chocolates and sweets and a handmade very cute bag!!

Not long ago I reminded Frank about my Handmade Christmas pledge and I asked him would he prefer a patchwork vest or a patchwork ipod cover? He never really answered that question... I somehow sensed as a woman does that he was perhaps not so keen on either. So this morning I bought him a goat for Christmas. I know it takes a little creative thinking to see a correlation between something handmade and the goat but buying the goat goes towards projects that are improving the lives of those in some of the world's poorest communities. Ironically, Michi Girl posted about Oxfam Unwrapped today too. If I had researched further I would have discovered you can give the gift of sewing training!

A couple of months ago I arranged a swap with Dees in the Netherlands. We both liked the same things so we thought it would be fun. My parcel arrived recently and yesterday was opening time. It was the best parcel I could of ever imagined. So many cute things and the most special and my favourite of all was the little sleeping deer made by Dees herself!! She is so clever and talented! Thank you Dees for a beautiful swap parcel!!!

Have you ever seen the work of Fawn Gehweiler! I was lucky enough to find myself a Fawn Gehweiler letterset today, how good is the envelope above. You can visit her blog here.
On a different note Frank told me today that a friend who is expecting a baby boy early next month was told today that they are actually having a baby girl!! Apparently a misreading of the scans. And yes they have bought everything in blue.
