Santa Sack Swap reveal

This was my second year participating in the Santa Sack Swap. And I again had a great time. All participants are paired with someone to swap with. We are paired in the summer and we have until November 25th to put together our pressies. Each person is to make a stocking or sack and fill it with at least 5 gifts, the majority of which should be handmade.

This year I swapped with Kim of Wisdom with Needle and Thread. Kim is quite a talented doll maker and oh those stitcheries! Both skills that are no where near my tool box.

Part of the SSS process is to stalk each other's blogs and get a sense of who that person is and what they would like. You'll see in a moment that Kim nailed it for me. LOL.

I had planned to open one package a day until Christmas but it was exciting to get an email from Kim regarding the gifts I sent her so I caved. Can you believe I forgot to photo the gifts I sent her? I'll link to Kim's post when it goes live...

I forgot to photo the card but I believe it said Meowy Christmas with a note inside that she thinks I like cats. Appropriate, no?

Next up was a very generously cut yard of this adorable cat fabric

A normal person would have caught on to the theme but I was enjoying the moment too much to notice, even as I continued to unwrap each gift.

I think next I opened the notebook with the kitten on the cover.
Then the scissors with the sparkly purple fob.
Then the black Christmas cat ornament - OK - now I'm catching on.
Then the tree shaped Merry Stitchmas ornament
And Finally the larger Halloween pillow.
And lets not forget the cocoa mixes and choco bar.

Kim's stitching is exquisite in such fine threads. I'm in awe!

Thank you so much Kim  - you definitely are correct, I do have a thing for cats and all the gifts were spot on. Merry Christmas!!!
