Secret Santa 2008

My Secret Santa partners this year were Ellen Lai and Connie Angeline. This is my favorite and only exchange and is run by Gina for the Tatting Goddess group...thanks Gina.

When my package arrived from Singapore I had a fair idea who it was from and hoped that there would be one of Ellen's own designs inside....there were in fact 3.
A lovely shimmering angel tatted with 3 out of 6 strands of DMC Mouline pearlescent effect thread, a gorgeous Christmas tree bookmark..the one I had been hoping for (now I have to have a go at making this one)and a delicate varig' blue snowflake bookmark, in Manuela 20.

It's almost impossible to show you the effect of the irridescence.

Here are the entire contents of the package....

Lots and lots more goodies packed in a lovely Hello Kitty tin, 3 balls of Venus perle thread...I have never tried this, bangles, cabone rings, rose beads...angel wing beads...ooh they are lovely...please show me how to use these. A blank fridge magnet to fill,and lots of stuff for card making...I guess she knew that I make cards...little bells, snowflakes,Xmas tree brads and a huge lot of Christmas greetings that she cut out with her QuicKutz die cutter...I want one of those!!

I got a glass cutting mat and oval shape cutter set for Xmas to have fun with, these will be perfect for my ovals.

I will certainly use all of your gifts Ellen, thank you so much...your package was a joy to open.

Oh! and a she wrote her greetings on a set of postcards about the 2008 Formula 1 Singapore Grandprix...hubby and son drooled over them!!...and I did recognise some of the landmarks. yeah

Oh! and there were sequins sprinkled everywhere. Lovely stuff!


  1. It looks like you got pretty spoiled by your secret santa! How fabulous! Lucky you!

  2. What a wonderful box of goodies from your secret santa! This is looking more and more like something I should do. Great job Ellen!

  3. Ellen does such exquisite tatting. I treasure the two fobs she tatted. I keep my mini-crochet hook attached to one of them. You deserve to be spoiled; you spoil others, too.
