The Seventh Day of Christmas (and some other lovely stuff too!)

Today was the seventh day in our 12 Days of Christmas project and this gift was made by the talented Kasha Rolley (who is actually having a very special Christmas in Poland with her family). Kasha made us all a gorgeous necklet with a beautiful Venetian mask as the pendant. It really is a lovely piece of jewellery and I am looking forward to wearing it!

Kasha made beautiful felt pouches with button closures for the necklets and I have to admit I love the packaging as much as the gift!! Makes me want to cut out leaf shapes and stitch them to felt ATCs!! So tactile.

Today's mail also bought me two envelopes from overseas - firstly a very sweet cross stitch Christmas ATC from a trade with the prolific (and quick!!) Anne Lugherini in France and this lovely door hanger from my monthly trading partner Carole Brugnar over in New Zealand. I have already posted pictures of my trade for Carole but my ATC for Anne is still getting stitched so I can't post about it yet (or put it in the post either!) PS Anne doesn't have a blog unfortunately.

I started my Christmas holiday this afternoon and I don't go back until the 5th of January but it doesn't really feel holiday-like yet as we only have tomorrow to get organised for the time away. So tomorrow is a busy day, Sunday is basically a driving day, Monday is my precious friend Judi's wedding and then we start the family part of the holiday, catching up with everyone and getting into the Christmas spirit!

Snap Debbi--I received my ATC's from Anne and Carole this week and Carole sent me one of those serviettes like the one on your swap.
Have a great holiday
