Christmas Cracker CQI

We exchanged a European Tradition in Gift Giving or Exchanges in the Crazy Quilting International Yahoo Group. The are called Christmas Crackers. The traditional crackers have some kind of small gift in them. That is not the same in the Crazy Quilt world. The Crackers came filled with fabric, beads, thread, Seasonal image and what ever else we could fit in that little tube we sent out. I received 2 different ones. The first one on the left is the outside cover to middle photo. The outside cover is a quilt block in itself that I will embellish at a later time. I received different types of thread, a least 3 to 4 kinds of different beads or bugler beads. A beautiful Silkie of a Lady in the Park I think.
The Second Cracker I forgot to take a picture of the outside cover but it was just as pretty. I received many different fabrics in many different textures. I received a needle case, was I glad for that after Valentine's Day Emergency Vet trip with Chase. No more needle swallowing at our house, keep all needles in a case of some kind please. At least 2 to 3 kinds of beads& threads to work with. I do remember that The Silkie with The Girl and Flower were on the outside with a Peach or Pink Satin Fabric.
I would like to thank Debbie and Carrie for the wonderful Christmas Crackers that were sent to my home this Christmas. I made Christmas night much more fun this year because we decided to wait and give each other gifts later.
