Christmas and Swap Goodies

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and didn't overdo it too much! I know I did!
I had a wonderful day with Alan and all my children and a friend over for dinner it was a lovely.
 I had quite a few swap gifts under my tree. 
Now that the chaos is over I have time to write my blog to show you how generous the wonderful people I have been partnered with are.
The first parcel I opened was from Leanne (Lizzie the Quilter) We had done other swaps earlier in the year and decided to do one at Christmas too. I love the gifts she sent. 
Spotty bunting which will be up in my kitchen as soon as the Christmas decs are down. Covered buttons, assorted buttons ( I'm not sure if Leanne new but I love buttons) Christmas trimmings, die cut hexagons and a beautiful phone case. It fits my phone perfectly too :) 
She also made me this super sweet cupcake ornament.

These are the gifts I sent to Leanne 
 Christmas handbag charm, Frixion pen, button heart, chocolate and some ribbon.
 I also made her this table topper. From a Gail Pan design.
 I have a few more swaps to post about but they will have to wait for another day.

Hoping you are all enjoying the Holidays
