Christmas in July!

Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' organised a Christmas in July swap - thank you Cheryll.

A package came for me this week from Spain - Barcelona in fact - from Montse, who does not blog.
These were the contents of my package.

Lots of goodies inside the box.

Thank you Montse.

Montse's favourite colour is Emerald so here are the emerald things I sent to her.

And if I translated her profile right she collects bookmarks hence the 'Little Reader' on the left.


  1. Christmas!!!??? :-) :-)
    Beautiful green purse, Lin; I presume one you made.

  2. How very exciting!
    I love the way Montse decorated the trinket box, filled with lovely gifts, and such a cute ballerina!
    Oooh, and chocolate too ..... Very Christmassy!
    The purse you sent is magnificent! Did you make the lace? Love the button too!
    Very nice scissors. Gorgeous bookmark!
