Secret Santa Gift from Jules!

I was snowed in on Monday, so I was delighted when I went down to the mailbox and found that my gift from our Christmas Exchange had arrived! A big thank you to Jules who sent me a beautiful ornament and a wonderful assortment of crafting goodies.

I have to confess, I'm snacking on the yummy chocolates as I post this...

Along with the adorable Margaret Sherry kitty, Jules included two packages of Lindt chocolates (so delicious!), fabric for a cross stitched table runner, embroidery floss, Christmas yarn, and 3 beautiful swatches of blue fabric.

I'm so eager to start crocheting with the yarn or stitching a pattern onto the table runner (I'm considering Margaret Sherry's Bauble Mice, if I can make them fit!) My camera isn't doing it justice, but all these wonderful goodies came in the beautiful box that Jules teased us with in her Secret Santa on its Way post. The box is beautiful and sparkly, not to mention sturdy, so I'll be saving it to keep Christmas decorations in over the years to come.

And now a closer look at the lovely ornament Jules stitched. Isn't it cute? There is also beautiful sparkly ribbon around the edges. I couldn't coax the camera into taking a good picture of that though.

Once again, a huge thank you to Jules for brightening my day with such a wonderful gift! Thank you! And thanks to Nia for keeping our exchanges running very smoothly all year round!

Warm wishes for a happy holiday season to all my Margaret Sherry loving friends!
