I opened my parcel from Marica in Sweden that was under the  Christmas tree. ..
Soo beautiful. I love it! Marica also sent me to sweet patchwork heart ornaments which are now hanging on my special tree...
Thank you so much Marica for being my secret Santa xxx
I sent my parcel to Marika in Germany and I stitched my little tree decoratoring gingie..
And the ornament. ..
Plus a couple of little extras.

Big thanks to Chookyblue and her elves for organising this wonderful swap.
I was also very spoilt by Melody in our FHFS with lots of gorgeous gifts leading up to Christmas .....I had a pressie under the tree as well.
An oh so cute Nodder made by Mel at a workshop by very clever and creative Keryn from Keryn's Creations.....
I just love him! I am very lucky to have a "Keryn Family" gifted to me by Keryn and Mel's Nodder has joined right in.
Thank you so very much Mel for all your spoiling big hugs xxx
A quick shot of my special friends tree from blogland ....
Thank you lovely friends.
I must dash away as I  am to be invaded shortly by 4 gorgeous little rascals....we are having our family celebration today.
I hope you are enjoying your Christmas festivities.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
