Secret Santa arrival

My secret Santa stocking arrived today. So very exciting. Actually, I think it arrived yesterday whilst I was in Melbourne for work because when I arrived home, the parcel had been torn apart by my eager children. It appears that my husband intervened just in time before they got their paws on this gorgeous stocking from Tracey (yet another blogger with a wonderful name!). My camera work tonight does not give this beautiful stocking justice.
I was very lucky to also receive a fabulous handmade drawstring bag with chockies, a sweet embroidery that has such beautiful detail of a little cherub sitting on what appears to be the letter T and a crocheted...I want to say granny square but its a hexagon shape (please help me, my descriptions are pitiful) and some handmade soap.

Thank you so much Tracey. I love them. Thanks again to Selina for organising the swap.

So happy your package contained a pleasant surprise, and the post people did their job efficiently.

I had lots of fun poking around your blog for ideas and making the stocking and accessories.

How clever is the Cherub on a T embroidery - it is beautiful! The stocking is perfect too!
