Bah Humbug swap

Finally, the day has arrived when I can open my Bah Humbug swap present....it's been sitting here since 1st December tempting me . . . .

and inside was a lovely mug and mug rug - Love the fabric wrapper and who can say no to cashews??
(Sorry - its sideways...it will have to do for now!)

I was able to hand mine over ... I had intended I would hand it directly to De, but instead it had to go via her very capable "courier".

It looked like this:
and inside was this:

I had fun making it.....after I found a mug I was happy with....seemed they were either cartoony or thick and fairly ugly.

I really enjoy these little swaps.  Thanks Sandi, Helen Teresa & Norreen

This was such a fun swap - both parcels looks great Susan!
I agree, it's hard to find a 'nice' Christmas mug; they're either too thick & chunky, plain ugly, kitsch, or cutesy. I received a beautiful one!
