F-R-I-E-N-D-S Swap 2012 gifts & another pressie

I finally got to open my F-R-I-E-N-D-S swap gifts from Cheryll today....I'd held off opening them, until she got back from her road trip and opened hers you can see above, I got quite a little pile of goodies to un-wrap, so thanks heaps Chez, I love it all to bits......wait till you all see what I got to open them up and reveal.
They sort of go top row left to right and then bottom row left to right....and here's a heads up for what each were:
F Festive hearts from felt
R Receptacle for Rubbish Bags
I Interesting fabric (hoot hoot!) and Insert your pins (hidden inside the fabric)
E Essentials for craft = tweezers/tape measure/knitting gadgets/scissor fob with an owl on it/flowers
N Novelty items = owl cards/gift wrap/ notepaper and envelopes (purple of course!)/notepad cover  and
         and owl magnet
D Delicious chocolate to eat (and oh boy, are they ever YUM) and Drinking chocolate to enjoy
S Star hangers and sockettes

There was also a keyring (in the pic just to the right of the choccies) with NV (my initials lol) loves to and a pic of a sewing machine on it, how cool is that hey????

Cheryll and I are also in a forum together, and they had a Christmas in July swap, which we both signed up for, but because Cheryll hadn't made the minimum amount of posts by the sign up date, she was ineligible....and not wanting her to miss out, I contacted her to see if she wanted to do a one on one swap with me....mind you, at this stage, neither of us knew exactly who we were lol  Once we twigged though, it made it even more fun...and we decided to delay our Xmas in July swap to combine it with our F-R-I-E-N-D-S swap to save on postage. 

If you'd like to see what she sent me, just click for what I sent her, I will have to wait for her to put posts up, as I forgot to take pics!  How cool was my pressie though....a table runner that is perfect for my kitchen's a goldilocks one, not too long, not too small, it's just right in other words....thanks heaps hun, I love it.....and it's purple, who wouldn't like it? lol

As for what I sent her for her Friends goodies, I'll just go have a look to see if I can find the pics!  Talk amongst yourselves while I'm gone!  Well that was a waste of time, I have pics of the individual pressies, but not of them as a whole, so maybe you'll just have to stalk her blog for her pics of it lol  I did however find the Christmas in July pressies I sent her, which was a Candle Mat (that fits her coffee table perfectly), an owl thimble and a notebook folder thingy!

No, she didn't get all the background 'junk' lol

Lastly, my next door neighbours, Wayne and Sharina went to Murray Bridge yesterday and happened to bring me back a pressie....check it out.....isn't it just gorgeous?  See no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil owls.....see, Sharina refers to me as "The Evil One" so it's quite a fitting present for me hey?

Just look at the speak no evil one....and how it's winking at me!

Edited today, to add the links to Cherylls post about the FRIENDS gifts I sent her.
