Christmas Greetings

I do love this time of year. I love sending things off on Santa's sleigh, wishing friends and family love and good wishes for the season.
Yesterday was one such an occassion. Lovely friends I stitch and share with every fortnight. For the first time in a very long time we were missing one....a family matter took her overseas. So we arranged ourselves in a pleasing manner for a piccie for her.
My secret Santa was the lovely Jacky.
My gift a beautiful crocheted knee rug.....gorgeous I need never be cold when I venture to Victoria again lol!

Santa's little elves delivered a parcel in the post from dear friend Shez...
One of her lovely kitchen sets....this one all them.
On Sunday a sweet little Angel came home with gorgeous!
Such a beautiful gift from friend Susan from Susan's Sewing Space.
Another lovely friend  Susan from Kiwikid gifted me a cute as ever gingie button complete with sweeties in a thread catcher. Love my gifts...very spoilt! Thank you xxx
On Tuesday I had a visitor for the day and he helped me with the baubles on my Christmas tree....
I asked Grandson no2 why they were together on the same branch? Because, I was told "they are obviously twins and need to be together" Lol!
Loved these little touches of Christmas colour in my garden too.

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
