Secret Santa Swap

As most of you know I am in a bee called Stitch Tease.  This is a super secret bee. Everything we make for each other cannot be seen by the intended recipient until their quilt is finally put together sometime next spring. We have some wonderfully talented women in it and we have all become quite good friends. Some of us have met others in the group and by next July I will have met almost all the members.
When Annabella suggested we have a Secret Santa Swap we thought we should all reveal our gifts on the same day. TODAY IS THE DAY...
Annabella and I divided up the group so we could each have a surprise as well. Each person put three hints of what we would LOVE to receive.
Mine were:
1. bunting
2. coasters
3. tree ornament

It's always fun when I see this post mark arrive at my door.

The first thing I saw was this chocolate sampler.

Hadley was assigned me as her partner and she hit the nail on the head. Not only did she make me the cutest bunting ever, but she made it with her precious Liberty fabrics.
This is me being very silly, but very surprised and excited to see what I got.

How cute are these little trees?

This bunting is perfect for my entryway mirror.

My partner was Helen.
Her list was:
1. Coasters
2. Mug Rug
3. Tree decoration

I sent her this set of 4 coasters I made with Cherry Christmas, decorative wine corks and some chocolate covered OREOS.

I like swaps and this group is the best and so much fun.

Hadley's bunting is adorable and I love your coasters too - let's not forget the yummy chocolate too!

Very cool both ways, and chocolate in any form is always a bonus :oD

Great swap both by you and your secret santa.
