Christmas and birthday treats!

Thought to share a few pictures of the gifts i received recently.
I've stitched the Russian dolls or Matryoshkas, finished it into a pinkeep and sent it to Olga. I received the real wooden dolls from her back. Arent they soooooo cute. Thank you so much, Olga. So glad to hear you arrive safely back home.
What lovely pinpillow and very cute ornament from Lillie. See, the beautiful self made pins. Love them all!
Another great package from Anna. Such a cute cute doll and the Santa too. You might be worndering over the cookies, Anna but they were already eaten when i took this picture. Taste good!

As i haven't expected all these, it was really a very nice surprise! Thank you all so much.

This one, i've sent to Anna and happy to hear it has arrived safely.
While this one, i am afraid is lost in the mail. It is now, nearly four weeks and still haven't arrive to the U.S. I am so sorry, Shari.

I'm glad Annie received this one safely.

We are leaving tomorrow(22nd) heading to the southern part of Holland and will be spending Christmas at one of our friends. We will be staying there till the weekend. Have to be back the evening of 26th as hubby's family have a kind of family gatherings. A pity not everyone will join or can attend due to work.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and i hope everyone's enjoying the preparation for Christmas.

Such nice little beauties. They all are great gifts. Enjoy everything. Maybe the one you sent to the US will still arrive after Christmas. I've had this a couple of times. Once the advent calendar I sent my daughter every year in mid November arrived at the end of January. So don't give up hope, lol.
