I was spoiled by Cheryll,this was my first SSCS and I was bowled over by my lovely parcel.

First item was this beautiful thread catcher,I love it.
Lovely pincushion
Needle case

My daughter lives in Australia and Cheryll thought I would like an Australian themed gift,she was right  isn't it lovely Santa & Rudolf splashing about.
Thread holder and thread
Lovely ribbon(I put ribbon on everything so it will be well used)
Buttons,can never have too many of those.
Cheryll did her homework and knew I love to make jewellery so included this great kit to make a brooch,watch this space you will see it soon.
A scissor keeper and chocolate.
Erm there was more chocolate ,but it jumped right into my mouth before I had time to take a's true I tell you LOL.

I am one lucky girl and love all of my gifts ,thank you so much Cheryll.
