Christmas in July

Hello my friends.
I have been so blessed by Melody of 

Now it`s the 25th and time to show what was inside these parcels.

The first parcel to open was this lovely 
stitching bag with a bar of chocolate and 
in the bag tied with red ribbon
10 little ladybird chocolates. 

I have the fabric for the top part of the bag but will lookout for the other
plus the lining fabric as well.
I think I will make a block roll to match.
This will keep everything together. :) 
The next parcel had these three ornaments to hang on my tree.
Melody they are perfect.

The last parcel had this fantastic stitchery wall hanging.

The last two are going in my `Christmas box` 
ready to hang in December.
The chocolate won`t last that long and the stitching bag 
I have a project ready for this. 
Thank you Melody. You have blessed me so much.
I pray my secret partner is out of hospital and has 
opened my gifts to her.
Happy Stitching,
