Secret Santa

 On the Tatting Goddess List we have a Secret Santa swap.  This is what I received from Tatskool.  Here is it when I eventually opened it on Christmas morning.  I was warned not to open it before Christmas, when I received it, as it was from Ireland and it could have been enchanted and turn to ashes in my hands...  So I waited.                                       


Imagine my joy, when I opened all the separate packages... So much...
3 pairs of gorgeously thick socks
a lovely 5 piece manicure set
a pretty
small pink rose soap
a sparkly silver candle
6 tasty pieces of chocolate, yum yum
a large silver coated chocolate euro
2 vanilla flavoured teas
Flora 20 tatting thread in a smashing dark red/maroon
a spool of silver thread Oya Dentel? something new to try
A beautiful little doily in variegated pinks and reds 

a fantastic white snowflake with silver beads   

last and best of all a new friend .......  Lorcan the Leprechaun.

He is so cute and  will definitely help me with my designing and tatting in the future.  I have seen some of his friends on other blogs, but never thought in a million years that a Leprechaun would want to come and live with me. He is meticulously dressed in yellow, red and green. A red belt with some fine green tatting tucked into it and holding a lucky euro.  He is settling in quite well and I hope, will be with me for many years to come.
ooh and I forgot... he came carrying some beautiful HDT 'rainbow bright' thread over his arm.
