Yesterday, the mailman arrived with a wonderful surprise for me. Carrie P. sent me this wonderful parcel.Carrie is coloring her "Sweet Nostalgia" blocks and posted a wonderful tutorial on her blog. I mentioned I'd like to try that technique on my next project and she has sent me the crayons I'll need, along with some yummy caramel chocolates, a cute hand made christmas ornament and a lovely fat quarter of Chanteclaire Christmas fabric. Thank you Carrie, what a tremendous surprise!
I've been busy this week, trying to get the house in shape for Christmas, and preparing the pattern for December's "Sweet Nostalgia" block, which will be coming next week. While I was pulling out the Christmas decorations I thought you might like to see a few of my Santa figurines and ornaments.



My husband brought the first one back from Scotland for me this year, and my DD gave me the the other one for Christmas last year.
My DD brought these cute Santa ornaments back from Scotland for me too!

I think they are a wonderful addition to my collection. Well, I'd better get back to work, still lots to do before I can get the baking started.

Bye for now. See you next week.

I was glad I could surprise you with some little Christmas goodies.
I guess I better get busy on my Nov. block.
Love all those Santas. That blue one with the scene on his bell is my favorite.
Enjoy your family and have a very Merry Christmas.
Hugs, Carrie P.
