Secret Santa Christmas Swap


I am a lucky quilter - look what I got as my swap gift !!
Thank you Nan, Quilting in Doxie-Land :-)

The packet was delivered on my door, by Fed-Ex, and the outside label said Nancy.......
On Elf Donna's sidebar list are 2 Nancy-s, so I had to open the box to find out more, so I could tell the sender the packet arrived safely.

I saw the packets had been opened before, by customs, for control, and I could not help seeing what was in the gift paper as paper was just laying on top of the gifts.
Maybe we can give customs a class on gift re-wrapping ;-)
I am happy the customs had not tasted my chocolate though - it is Mine !


I put the box aside deciding to enjoy the content on Christmas Eve anyway, but my furry grand-cat did not approve.
What customs control had started she finished - she wanted the box for herself !
Lille Rusk sends her purrs and licks to Nan too - a purr-fect box can never be overrated !


Look how lovely Nan's table runner looks on my coffee table!
Her work is wonderful and the fabrics are just so nice !

Thanks again Nan - your table runner will be taken well care of here and I am looking forward to use it many Advents!

Your Christmas swap is wonderful. Don't you just hate the way a few people have caused customs to have to open everything? However, your cat seems quite happy with the situation. =)

What a gorgeous table topper. Your cat knows the value of a good box.

PS - Your sox are cute.

Nan said...

You make me laugh with your grand-kitty in the box - it was just made for her, wasn't it? I'm so glad you liked my gifts, and I definitely agree the customs people need to learn to re-wrap! The pointsettia and candles look so nice on the runner, too!
You're very welcome, Hanne!
