Advent Calender 21st December...

A follow on from yesterdays post, with the contents of my Christmas Cracker swap from Tracy at   I was amazed at how much Tracy managed to get in to a kitchen roll!!...Well, here goes...
This was the contents that spilled out of the roll....a beautiful fabric picture very well sewn, I have to say!! It looks like the lighthouse near me, including the two little houses each side! That is exactly how it looks...have you been up here without telling me Tracy??? Also, a Father Christmas tin that was full of lovely buttons, bells and some fabulous tape with chickens on!! Love it!!  There was chocolate, some red bells, an embroidery kit (I have been wanting to try one of these and it is just the right size, thank you!!) red and white candy canes to hang on the tree (and they are already on there..), some Christmas trees, a magnet Christmas tree, and some very useful foils for card making!! Here are some close ups of it all.....(drum roll please.....)

The beautiful lighthouse appliqué picture...fabulous, isn't it!!
Father Christmas tin, red hanging bells, and candy canes, and two still wrapped up pressies..and the corner of the chocolate snowman....

The inside of Father Christmas, and a close up of my lovely tape!!

Well, don't forget I also had that lovely fabric that it was wrapped in, tied with beautiful ribbon, a lovely Christmas card and a book mark!!!  What more could a girl want!!  Thank you Tracy for being a FAB swap partner, especially as I was a late comer into this!! Hope you can arrange it for next year, and I promise that I will be on time !!!

  7. Hi debs I'm glad you liked your cracker. Sadly I haven't visited your lighthouse although I think it should be on my places to visit! I found a watercolour on the internet of the lighthouse and turned it into an appliqué picture! I shall share them on my blog so you can see xx
