Ho! Ho! Ho!

Yesterday my Santa Sack partner, Donna and I met up for a nice Christmas lunch at La Madeleine.  What better way to start off the Christmas season than with a nice filling meal and good company.  Afterwards we did our exchange and even though we're not allowed to open until Christmas, we each got a sneak peak.

This is what I gave Donna:


And this is what Donna gave me:

I just love my snowman sack.  It has a beautiful red snowflake fabric lining.  I'm such a dodo, I never even thought about making my sack for Donna out of Christmas fabric.  Bad me!!  I guess it was too much of a stretch for me to think about Christmas when I made this in May!!  I'll do better next time!

It's going to be a great Christmas season.  Thanks, Cheryll for hosting this swap and thanks, Donna for making it so much FUN!  It's been great getting to know you!!

But it is a pretty paisley bag and can be used year round. How cool that the two of you could meet.
