An Early Christmas Present


I LOVE getting early presents for ANY holiday so when I came in from work the other day and found a priority box out front I really got excited. After seeing that it was from my friend Christie in Fort Knox, Kentucky, I knew I couldn't open it right away because I hadn't mailed her gift yet. Some of the girls I go to retreat with in Indiana decided to do a one on one holiday swap with a $20 limit....Now, you know with a $20 limit you have to be creative and I think Christie was. I had a hard time sticking to the limit because everything I saw I wanted to buy..... So, I finally opened my box this morning because I shipped my box out Priority earlier today. Here's what I got.
Christie's without a sewing machine right now so I got a purple knitted or crocheted scarf (i'm not sure which it is) plus some candy, fabric, a tea mug filled with candy, a ME journal and a skinny santa. I'm thrilled with what I got so a big THANK YOU goes out to Christie....See you in May at retreat girlfriend!!!!

Seems someone knows you like candy!
The scarf is perfect for the weather you and I are having in south Jersey right now.

Hi Peg, I've just discovered your blog.... great! and funny! I love the idea of friends doing a one on one gift swap. I also belong to a group of 4 - called Four Friday Friends and I'll be suggesting we do something similar.

I think your box of goodies from your friend is just fantastic. I'm thinking the candy is a MUST HAVE when you sew, you just don't have time to actually make lunch! or dinner sometimes!!

Happy Sewing from Australia,
