Cracker Swap

There are some lovely cracker posts out there in blog land at the moment, don't forget you can also upload your photos to the Flickr group I've really enjoyed giving and receiving my crackers and will definitely be running this swap again next year.

My cracker arrived from Betty the Wood Fairy a few days ago and this is what Betty sent me, I could tell from the package that maybe some of the things wouldn't fit in a kitchen roll tube!!

Wrapped around the cracker was a very pretty piece of fabric which I think I will use to make something for Rachel's room. There was also a large piece of calico which I am going to use to make a crazy patchwork with in the new year which is something I have been wanting to try for sometime.

Tied to each end were these lovely hanging ornaments, a white metal heart with red ribbon and a handmade clay leaf.

As you can see this was another crammed to bursting cracker so crammed that Betty had to split open the cracker!

Inside the cardboard tube were these fruity bath fizzers

This cute bird cross stitch kit

Lots of glittery white snowflakes I was thinking of putting a jug on the table with some branches to hang small decorations and these will be ideal.

I have to say that this chocolate aero Christmas tree didn't last very long at all and tasted delicious!

And finally this scented heart which I shall keep in one of my drawers to keep my smalls smelling fresh and lovely!

Thank you to Betty for being a brilliant swap partner, your cracker was posted today so should be with you tomorrow.
