Santa Sack Presents for Maria!

Maria has opened all her pressies from me and this is what I sent her.
 Some lovely beads made by a friend of mine. Sorry the photo's not very good. They look so much nicer in person.
 A charm pack.
 A clip-on light. I thought Maria could use this in her travels
while sewing her hexagons in the car.
 A couple of covered hangers.
 Cath Kitson emery boards, some hand cream and lip balm.
Lavender Hearts.
Some varigated threads and needle case with needles.
I forgot to take a photo of the needle case.
 A covered project book and tape measure.
I cut out all the flowers using my Go Cutter!
 A bag.
Thread catcher, scissors and holder.
 As Maria says "You can never have enough fabric!"
A table runner. This is the photo Maria took of it. It's so much better than my photo (not washed out) and you can see the feature fabric better.
This is the label I made for the runner.
Thank you again Maria for being such a lovely swap partner. I really enjoyed getting to know you and putting all these goodies together for you. If you head over to Maria's blog, you'll see some better photos.
