Xmas Stitching

Last night was the Club Quilt Christmas Party....... A lovely night with a good turn-up of Club Quilt ladies, great food, great company and more importantly PRESSIES!

Most of us made a handmade something to include in the swap.... there were so many beautiful things but unfortunately I didn't take my camera.... If you pop over to the Club Quilt blog I'm sure you'll be able to check them out over the next few days!
This is what I made:
The pattern is "Father Christmas" by Hatched and Patched

Only one of them was for the swap.... I decided to make two at once so that I would have one for myself. 
I usually make things and give them away then never get around to making mine... I think I'll start doing this more often!

I also included a "Beaufort Bag" that I made back here and Joanie was delighted with her pressie.

These are the goodies I received which were made by Jan:
A lovely bag.... I can't wait to get this one washed up and put through the dryer so that it goes all shaggy!..... gorgeous colours!

And some great little sewing accessories.... aren't they cute?
Thankyou so much Jan (no blog)!

I also got to find out who my 6 items Xmas Swap partner was....Fiona from Dragonfly Crafts! So I'll show you all those goodies tomorrow.

Until then.......
