It was very exciting to have a couple of special parcels to open on Christmas morning, both from swaps that I've participated in:
Thankyou so much Tess.... everything you sent is just lovely!
Lovely quilted table mat, wallet, needle case.... and the main pressie:
A beautiful table runner. The rustic colours will look lovely on my recycled timber dining table!
Thankyou so much Sherry... they'll all be put to good use!
And thanks to Chooky for organising another great swap.
Until next time.....

We've been away for a few days..... and look what was waiting for me when we got home last night:
All these lovely goodies are from my Friends in Stitching group Secret Santa Christmas swap partner... ???
It's an advent swap so we had to send 5 smaller parcels and one main parcel to open on Christmas day....you can see they're all numbered so I know which one to open first.
I opened the first one today but I'll wait and show you them all together once I've opened them!
Until next time.......

I was very excited to receive my Secret Santa Christmas Swap parcel yesterday.....all the way from Sherry in the USA.
Just look at all these parcels...... Sherry has spoilt me rotten!
Boy, I think I'm going to have to get the kids to hide them so I'm not tempted to open them all before Christmas!
Although, I did get to open one straight away..... this cute little ornament, isn't it sweet?

It was my Sister's birthday yesterday so I can now show what I made for her last week. I've been promising her a bag for a while now and since her taste is a little bit different to mine I had her choose the fabrics and the style of bag a few months back.... with no promises as to when she would receive it, lol.
Until next time......
And it's reversible.... so my Sis gets two bags from the one!
I did the handles in denim so that it would go well with both fabrics and I'm very happy with how it turned out.... She loved it!
The pattern for this one is the "The Reversible Bucket Bag" from The Bag Making Bible by Lisa Lam -
I just love this book with lots of tips and great ideas when it comes to making bags.
Now I just have to find time to make the other one she's picked out... :)
Until next time......
