Christmas in August!

At last, Christmas in July, but posting in August! 😞

Thanks again to Kaye, for organizing this Christmas in July exchange. This time I was sending AND receiving from Australia, what fun!

Stitching Noni @ Fireflies & Cats in the Garden sent me this...
A Panda pattern, a boomerang, a snowman scissor fob, a stitched snowman/penguin card, a stitched bell ornament, buttons and embellishments, yummy chocolates, and adorable koala fabric! I believe I got everything. Wow, I've been spoiled!
I think I'll get a frame for the card so I can display it better. I mentioned I thought I needed to find a koala pattern to use the fabric with and Noni sent me this link to Carrol Nielsen Cross Stitch Designs. So many to choose from!

Nathan and I had some of the chocolate coins 😍, but I'm saving the Cadbury for later.
Once again, thank you so much, Noni! I love everything and Nathan appreciates the coins!

I sent my package to Lyn, but she doesn't have a blog. Because I wanted to send her a rum cake from our Caribbean cruise in July, she didn't receive it until August.

This is what I sent Lyn, but forgot to take a picture of the chocolate rum cake.

I made the card and the angel earrings, stitched Father Christmas on the sled, and the Christmas tree. I sort of made the tree into a shadow box, I'm not quite sure it ended up the way I thought it would, but there it is.

Another fun exchange, thank you, Kaye! πŸ’Ÿ

Two great exchanges! I like the shadow box with the extra embellishments.

Well done to you both, lovely exchange goodies you chose to send. The little sleds are so cute.
