The wee little deathly hallows symbol and the tiny chocolate frog box and cards are KILLING ME!
Did you happen to take any process pics? I would love to see more detail and how-you-did-itness. Just awesome.

I am so glad somebody tackled that bear coaster project for you Smeddley. I saw them and wanted to but there just wasn't enough time in my schedule. I know you'll love them forever, they are great.

Moomins! Those guys are so adorable.

Nobody is actually waiting for xmas to open their gifts are they? I know I couldn't possibly put it off until the 25th. When it gets cold like this I need cheering up every day, lol. That's why I love getting holiday cards so much, they filter in for all of December and keep me smiling Smiley.

I sure did!

A friend is encouraging me to try the gap infinity cowl pattern, there's a striped version with 2 different stitches that looks perfect. I might be brave enough to give it a go, we'll see...

ETA like this, maybe I am being a little ambitious but I like it!

So glad you like your goodies! The book has a story I'll be posting in the next couple of weeks in it's own thread Smiley.

I love these note card set & the wool is scrumptious. Thank you partner!

I'm going downtown today so will stop at the lovely yarn shop & find a complimentary wool to add to the skein you sent, I'm hoping to make myself an infinity cowl. Crochet as I'm not ready to try knitting but soon I will get that brave Smiley.

Well I do get into bed but it's usually with a project & no that's not a code name for Robert Cheesy

Nooo those are such nice TM squares, how fun are they? And your little guys are so adorable. Smiley there looks like a lot of bouncy good times, I hope the rest of you are feeling better and energetic again Smiley.

miknessevie what am I looking at, is it... a matchbox colouring book? No WAY! That is amazing!

kittykill it's nice to see you getting spoiled Smiley.
I'm not saying a word about the tea towels. Ok, one word: Fabulous! But that's it Wink.

LBBB you too, what a fun bunch of stuff you've received! Well deserved.

There's an awful lot of felt in this gallery. Do you think a full sized version of the ugly sweater is possible? I'd wear that Cheesy.

It feels lucky Smiley.

I have a couple swap items that have arrived at destination to share
Matchbox ornament:

Paper pieced snow person mug rug using AMIR's very clever cheaty binding:

Scrabble tile and old wood rule ornament :

The 3 bells are my last old brass ones. I have more of course but they are shiny and new, I prefer slightly trashed for that vintage feel, lol.

House pouch that reminds me of Hagrid's place:

Love it! The wee scene manages to have so much depth, that is amazing. The sweary embroidery is too funny too, ha ha!

I received as well from our lovely organizer who spoiled me rotten.
Surprise box and the back of the other:


The hanging ornament box has the best most hilarious scene. There is transparency plastic in the window so I opened it to get a glare free shot to share. Look at all the teeny weeny bits of paper! Scissor skills, she haz them.

The second box had this amazing multi-media pendant in it made of felt, paper, wee boro stitching with seed beads, WOW.

The bale is stamped with "Where there's a will,there's a way" which was one of my gran's favourite sayings and means so much to me. I put it on immediately. I have a very specific sense of style when it comes to jewelry and this is absolutely perfect, I love it. Thank you so much Smiley.

And she sent popping candy, lychee flavour.

The only reason I am sharing with the kids is because it's a huge bag full of packets of the stuff. It's so much fun, I love that crazy fizzy candy!

We also did a side swap for hand spun hand hand dyed wool and note card sets, these are so great.

Thank you partner, this has been a great swap!

The slippers are great! Very pro stitching, everything I crochet ends up looking homemade, lol.

I have lots to post but most is still in transit for swaps so here are a couple of things:
These ornaments from lots of old stash:
