advent calendar December 1st – 5th

This year I did something I don’t usually do . . . I sent off a parcel, early November, to my sister, with lots of little packages inside, each one with a number . . . her very own advent calendar.  2020 has been such a dismal year, and my sister works in a hospital, so she’s one of our essential workers . . . I felt she needed something special to make her feel special this year.  And if I’m honest, it also cheered me up, and made me forget about what a gloomy year we’re having, as I was kept busy thinking of different ideas to include in the parcel.

She said she’s going to open a pressie a day in the morning, so I’ll be sharing photos with you, of what she found inside.

Today we’re December 5th, so I can show you what was in packages 1 – 5.

1st – little hand-stitched decoration with wooden frame.  2nd – letters N O E L for her to decorate and use in a festive crafting project.  3rd –  Needle book with cross stitch needles. 4th – very small Gorjuss notebook, perfect handbag size.  5th – two fabric masks in a pretty blue butterfly fabric (sister loves butterflies).
