My Christmas Exchange from Maria


Looooooooook what I got from Maria in Pa!! And apart from what's in the pic there were two packs of Lindt Chocolates, one dark, one milk AND a CD of crochet baby patterns!!!

So generous - it was one of most exciting presents I have had for a long time!


Six skeins of TLC Wiggles yarn, 2 white, 2 pale blue and 2 grape, two skeins of Red Heart Strata in variegated blue and white.













Six beautiful tree ornaments made by Maria herself, and a gorgeous little angel, looks like it was hand carved.











Two of THE most elegantly appliqued velour guest towels, and two tea towels (dish towels) and a wonderful calendar with pictures of Philadelphia, including one of the Liberty Bell.


And this beautiful doily - a really nice large size, ideal to place in the centre of my silky oak dining table - which is what these gifts are sitting on in the pictures!!

Thank you Maria, everything is beautiful and what is even better, will get a lot of USE - I can't wait to knit with the Strata yarn and see how it turns out!!
