Does anyone have a extra week I can borrow, cause I'm running out of time here!

I received this lovely gift in the mail from my blog friend Melanie www.jellybeanangel2.blogspot.com ,
It was so much fun opening this and I just love it. Look at that angel isn't it darling? I tried to get a photo of it to show just how sparkly it is, but I'm afraid I didn't do that good of a job. The angels wings are gold and they really do sparkle beautifully. I had been admiring the angels Melanie made when she showed them on her blog, so I was really delighted to have received one. She also sent me this towel and bookmark. I love Melanie's posts about where she lives and of her travels, so I was excited to see the bookmark from Bank Hall because I remembered it from her posts and the same with some of the locations on the towel. Thank you so much Melanie.
I also received my sscs from my partner, Kerry www.kerryswainscottage.typepad.com ,
I was Kerry's partner for our Christmas in July swap! I don't think I ever showed what I made for Kerry, so I'll finally do it now

The ornament that Kerry made for me is just gorgeous, it looks so intricate - it really is beautiful. I'm being a good swapper and won't open the rest until Christmas. Which is coming around too fast.

No I don't have an extra week but if you get 2 offers I could do with one. LOL

So glad you like her. They were just a little something and a thank you for your encouragement with the Christmas Wish project.

Love your mat and sticking -cute gingerbread men.

Hi Lynn just letting you know that my SSCS gifties have arrived safely. I love the little stitched ornament...it is so cute. I am so tempted to open the other gifts but so far have managed not to...but I cant guarantee that I will be able to resist.
Thanks again

Hi Lynn, glad you like the decoration, they are really simple just made out of ribbon and pins - basically. I do hope you like your present when you open it on Christmas day. Also hope you fine a few extra hours somewhere, LOL
