6 Items Sent

My 6 Items Xmas Swap parcel arrived safely at it's destination last week but with so much happening I here of late I haven't had a chance to show you what I sent to my partner Dzintra.

My 6 items included:
1) Something to read - Book: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare and a Book Pouch
2) Something to eat - Chocolate
3) Something Smelly - A Scented Candle and some nice soap
4) Something for the Craft Room - Effie the Elephant Pincushion
5) Somehing Handmade - Couch Companion
6) A Xmas Item - Christmas Tea Towell

The Couch Companion
(Pattern by Leanne Beasley)

Effie Elephant Pincushion
(Heather Bailey pattern "Effie & Ollie" thanks to Khris who was my partner in the FRIENDS swap)

Christmas Tea Towell
(Stitchery from "A Little Bit of Christmas" by Hatched and patched)

Book Pouch
(Snap happy bag pattern by Stitchin' Sisters - size modified)

Dzintra was delighted with her parcel and I've really enjoyed exchanging emails with her since the big secret was unveiled.... the only thing I regret is not making two of those couch companions at the same time!

Until next time.....
