Secret Santa Christmas Swap

YaY!.... At last....we got to open our SSCS presents!

My swap partner was Oddbjorg from Norway... I was so excited to think that someone on the other side of the world made me a gift.
She sent a lovely parcel filled with treats..
 A beautiful zippered purse and matching tissue holder...How nice is this fabric!...I just Love it
The tissue holder has the most beautiful tissues in it...too cute to use!
Then as an added surprise she sent a calendar with beautiful pictures of Norway, an Arctic circle bookmark and some blue fabric..that I will use in a special project...actually it would be perfect in the amish quilt that is on my to do list.

Thank you so much Oddbjorg. I really Love my gifts and appreciate the time and effort you made to create and send them.

Now....some family Christmas Cassillis NSW
Bella and her Santa stocking and an Aussie bush tree!

 It was a really wet rainy day...The Best Christmas present ever was 71ml of rain....really exciting considering they have not had rain for 4 Months...and were also fighting a bushfire on christmas eve!

Boxing day
 Daughters 2 & 3 snuggled up reading in their quilts

It was really cold at Cassillis and we had to light the fire...and cook pea and ham soup for lunch...My sister in law makes the Best Soup!....My BIL and DD3

 The great Articulate game challenge...
 And the winners are....The mothers!  YAY

The Boxing Day Cricket Match...and yes that is a power pole used for a wicket!

A lovely family time ...I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas with friends and family as much as I did.
till next time
Cheers Floss

  8. Happy Christmas and New Year!
    I love the cricket match. Our two bins (garbage and recycling) had wickets painted on them by the boys. They had raided the shed and found their dad's can of silver spray paint. The ball makes a heck of a racket when it hits the bin!
    Loved the SSCS pressies; how thoughtful.

  9. Lovely SSCS items received! and yes the fabrics are just gorgeous, so summery...
    i hope that the bushfires stay away for the season now, how scary...
