Another Lovely Gift

My good friend Loulee from the Isle of Man, who now lives in New Zealand, and I also swap gifts each Christmas.  This year Lou sent me a lovely parcel.

November & December 2014 357

It had a delightful angel looking after it.

What looked like 2 parcels turned out to be five!

Look what was inside.

Happy is the heart

That holds a food friend

What a lovely sentiment.  The hanging is beautiful.  When I get my sewing room in the new house I will have to have a wall of mini quilts.  I have two now from Lou to hang.

Here is the rest of the gifts.  Yummy chocs, a sweet diary, a very handy bag in Kiwiana fabrics and a bag bag.  We were rather excited about the bag bag, as it was the first thing that I was going to make for our kitchen in this house.  Now I don’t have to and it is in Manx fabric.  A double win.

Thanks Lou for such wonderful and thoughtful gifts.

Great house is complete without a bag bag! I didn't realise you were assistant elf this year, thank you so much.

Loved your SSCS gifts you received in previous post.

How lucky you are to have Loulee as your friend. I am delighted to have her as my SSCS partner sew I know how beautiful her gifts are. Loved all she has made.

You're welcome Janice. Glad you liked your goodies.
The wee angel was made by a friend here, whom I'm sure you will meet.
