Winter Wonderland!

 I'm in an on-line stitching group and we just had our Angels and Mortals Winter Wonderland Swap. My secret mortal was Dale of Club Quilt Narromine. This is what I sent to Dale. A mug with Snowy Owls on it. A rug mug to match. Some yummy Ferrero Rocher "snowballs" and a fat quarter with snowflakes on it.
I tried to duplicate one of the owls on the cup.
 My secret angel was Maree of On My Verandah and boy did she spoil me. A gorgeous twisty scarf which will be great at the footy, a beautiful lavendar bag with my initials, one of Maree's Ollie and May Designs patterns, a hot chocolate for one set, some marshmallows and yummy chocolate biscuits.
 Isn't the lavendar bag lovely! It smells devine.
It's hard to get a good picture of the scarf but you can see what I mean by twisty.

Thank you Maree for my lovely goodies.
