Christmas kindness

Presents from Anita

Each year, I exchange gifts with my crafting friend Anita in the Netherlands. We make gifts for each other and also send special surprises representing our countries.

My box from Anita arrived on Monday, and several packages were marked "open now." What fun! It's nice to start Christmas early, I think.

When I opened the packages, I found the goodies pictured above: a tiny Santa cushion, a sweet owl ornament (both are cross-stitched) and a ceramic Delft tree ornament.

I have to find homes for these lovelies, but the cushion is already a reclining place for Klaus, a Santa doll that Anita made for me when we first started trading crafts:

The rest of the gifts will have to wait until Christmas. I'm excited about what other beautiful things Anita may have crafted for me!
