Santa Came Early! SSS Announcement

My SSS partner is the BEST!!  No one can claim that honor ever again.
Today started out kind of crummy: I woke up with a cold and I still had to go to work.  The office was cold (Monday, ya know) and the dog spent the entire morning under a quilt next to my chair.  I wanted to be there with her = O  .

There was a slight commotion when the Fed Ex guy left a package.  IT WAS FOR ME! and it wasn't anything that I had ordered.

 It was so cutely wrapped.  Don't you love that fringe she used?

When I opened it, it was stuffed with treasures.

 Even the stocking was full!

 She really read my profile. There's a Santa candle holder, a sweet carved-stone covered-box, a Christmas story book, and an angel.  Too too sweet!

But there was more.

A bunch of fat quarters and a charm pack.  I can't wait to get these under my sewing machine.

She also included the cutest Christmas cocktail napkins and spreaders, a book by one of my favorite authors and an iTunes gift certificate. 


HOMEMADE COOKIES!!!  The bags were tied with the cleverest ribbon.  See it at the bottom:  It looks like Santa's belt and belt buckles.  The cookies are delicious.  You KNOW I had to open them and sample a few (maybe more).  I think I remember reading that you should feed a cold.  Right?

My SSS swap partner took very good care of me.  She fed my soul, my mind, and my tummy.
Today ended up being a very good day after all.  Thanks!

Thanks to Suzanne for hosting this fun event.  Go check out what other people got from their swap partners.  If someone's blog name has *** in front of it, it means their package has arrived and they've blogged about it.

Here's to you having a good day, too!


  1. Looks like Santa came early... what a haul!
