In my new bee, Bee A Brit Stingy we have got to know each other by swapping pincushions and this week we sent our Secret Santa parcels. I made this basket for Collette.

On Thursday night I came in very late after a lovely 'Christmassy' day in Cambridge and found an interesting parcel that my nice postie had left in the coal bunker for me. I couldn't take any photos yesterday as we had torrential rain and the light was terrible. It was one of those days when you had the lights on all day and it was still really drab. Imagine my delight when I opened up my own Secret Santa parcel. It was from Sheila and it was filled with lots of goodies.

The basket is a real Christmassy one made with Oh Deer fabric. I love it Sheila. It was filled with chocolates and a roll of fabrics, a fantastic zipper with a jazzy pull (I am going to make myself a pouch using this), a frame to make a little purse (need time to sit down and do this - a New Year project methinks!), some appliqué hearts all cut out and ready to use and a delicate glass angel for my tree. I really don't know how that came though the post intact. Sheila has greater faith in the postal system than I do! I took a close up of the angel as it gets 'lost' in the above photo.
This bunch of goodness all came wrapped in some amazing 'bubble wrap' type of material. Look at those santas and snowmen. We have nothing like that in the neck of the woods!
Thank you Sheila for such a beautiful basket filled with lots of 'treasure'. I am one happy bunny.
