Special gifts for special people

Merry Xmas   The thing I love about xmas is the giving. I love to find or make that special gift for that special person and see the response when they open it on xmas day. It is not about the expense, it is about the thought that you put into what you give. I love surprises and my family are very good at surprising me also. I have just been putting the finishing touches on a special gift for my Son's lovely girlfriend Chantal. I have struggled with finding something special for her, ( she has worked hard at finding those special gifts for all of us. ) I really wanted to give her something to remember us and take away with her. Chantal and Peter ( my youngest boy ) are heading off on their O.E this May and I have tears in my eyes already. They will be away for at least two years, so I thought I would try to have a special xmas at home this year. Xmas means allot to Chantal and she loves her Santa sack that her Mum fills up each year, and even tho she is now 22 years old she is not wanting to give up on this special treat. Peter has been helping me with ideas, but everything I have wanted to give her she already getting from on of her sisters, she is the youngest of four girls, a very close family. After she told me about the Santa sack I set to work and thought that I would make her one she could take away with her so that when they are on their own overseas next xmas they would have Santa sacks to remind them of us. I have filled Chantal's with her favorite chocolates, ( as she is a chocoholic like the rest of us. ) some nice body lotion, earrings and a KIWI key ring. Here is a picture of her Santa Sack all finished and ready for stuffing.     I also have a lovely friend Elizabeth who has been working on a special gift for her sister. She has made up our Pine Valley Quilts Rose Cushion Kits. Elizabeth also hand quilted her cushion. I know her sister will be thrilled with this treasure.   Happy Stitching Sharon
