SSCS arrived!

When I came home from work today there was a parcel waiting for me...

How exciting- my Secret Santa swap parcel had arrived already. 

When I opened it, this was inside.

Two lovely presents- one wit the ornament and one to put under the tree.... And I have a very sneaky Secret Santa- she didn't write her name or blog on the cards.... She did write her return address though- so I think I know who you are..... from Chookyblue's blog list of Secret Santas.... But I'm not sure.

And here are the ornaments- they are adorable!!  Thank you so much secret Santa!  And just so you know- The other gift is safely hidden away until Christmas Eve...

Since tomorrow is December first I had to get our advent calendars ready.  For the first time since I was 15 i have a calendar as well!  Yeeeeyyyy! Our quilt guild had an advent calendar trade- and we all brought 24 wrapped quilty gifts to our last meeting- and the g gifts were all mixed up and divided out again,so we went home with 24 different gifts.

Here is Sigve and Ola's calendar- My aunt made it for the kids about 12-13 years ago I think- I love the angel choir- so pretty!  Kristine has a different calendar this year- No picture..... sorry!
Hope everyone has a great December 1st!
