When I signed up for the Santa Sack Swap, I knew that I would receive a sack full of goodies.
What I didn't realise was that I would also receive the gifts of friendship and love - by the sack load! My partner was Cat from Catalina's Cottage.
As a Mum, I find that I often know the contents of virtually every parcel under the tree, so it was exciting to have a pile of presents of which the contents were a complete mystery.
I couldn't wait to FINALLY be allowed to open them (the majority of these present were handed over way back in mid June when Cat came down to Christchurch, so its been a loooong wait).
Inside, I found lots and lots of gorgeous goodies-
... and a beautiful apron made with Tilda fabric. I WISH I had taken a photo of it to share with you all.
The presents weren't all made by Cat. Look what Cat's talented husband Mr B made for me- a Beautiful egg holder. The wood is SOOOO smooth and tactile!
Cat even taught herself to knit and made all these beautiful tree decorations. She was about to burst with pride and was DESPERATE to blog about them, so I am very proud that I am the one who gets to share these little beauties with you for the very first time!
So many beautiful gifts from a beautiful woman.
Thank you so much my good friend Cat.
Sorry but these photos just don't do justice to all the gorgeous presents. I was having a bit of a camera/ computer nightmare tonight and these are the best I could manage!
