Seasons Greetings!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
I'd like to share a few of the gifts I sent and received.
For an exchange in a Facebook group I'm a member of I made and sent this bag,

and received these beautiful hearts and Christmas plaque.

It was a completely secret exchange and my partner hasn't come forward so I don't know who to thank, but I love them very much, especially the large one with the cats and blue and white china, which is going to look wonderful in my kitchen.
I also made a bag and matching scarf for my friend in the village

and received these lovely handmade goodies from her - the pincushion is made using an antique bakers mould.

I received some lovely gifts from online friends,

Huge thank yous to (clockwise from top) Barb, Clare, Karan and Julie 

and my daughter wood-burned these fabulous tree decorations for me

I'd like to finish by wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year, and leave you with the cover image from the calendar that the girls got for me.

I can't begin to imagine where they get their sense of humour from...
