I have received a lovely gift from Marica from Sweden in the SSCS. A lovely made bunting that interpreted reads Merry Christmas and an angel stitchery with thread and accessories for me to complete. Thankyou again Marica and thanks to Chooky and partner for the organising of this swap.

Couple of finishes.......

I decided to make our GD her own Santa bag. Her favourite colours.........of the moment.

As you can see, it is quite large and is full. Of course she is our only grandchild and it is our duty to spoil her, isnt it? :)
I have also made a bag using the wooden handles I bought in Young. Several pockets inside and a large one on the outside. I must admit I really enjoy making bags.

Merry Christmas to everyone.

Opening day...........................

Today was the day to open our presents from the Santa Sack Swap organised by the lovely Cheryll.
My partner was Lisa from Lisa V Lounge.
Thses are the loverlies I have received. Please note all the beautiful Cross stitch work in my runner.

Just beautiful. Thankyou Lisa and Cheryll.
I have emailed Lisa and she is happy with my gifts to her. I really enjoyed making them for her.

Cant wait to see everyone elses goodies.

Hexagon Magic....

Finally finished the table topper using the gadget from Cowra. It came together quickly, just took me awhile to back and quilt in the ditch.

Not traditional chrissie colours but bright. I watched a you tube on binding and corners. Looks much better than previous attempts.

No more Chrissie sewing for this year. I still have a few kits that I have bought through the year but Im over it and will leave them for next year.

Blogger is still playing games with me. It is continually making me a no reply blogger. Very annoying.

A Fabulous Home Coming ..........

Hubbie and I have been on our last (for this Year) caravan getaway. We had 4 great nights at Woolomin (near Tamworth), camping beside the Peel River. A little village that time has forgotten, no internet and no phone coverage.

Im having soooo many probs loading photos.

The postie had been with loverlies a splendour..........
My fabulous, huge win from Cheryll................... thanks again Cheryll :)

My SS from Chookys swap .... all the way from Sweden..
I have placed the beautiful patchwork ornies on my tree and on a mini, love them!

I could also put out this advent calendar. A panel I bought in Cowra recently which I have embelished and machine and hand quilted.

OMG!!!!!! Bloody blogger

Anyway, all days are full of choccies, waiting for my grandie to visit.
Lots of blog reading tonight, yeah.

Apologies for the outburst, no offence intended.
