Christmas in July Swap Parcels Received

I have received my Christmas in July Swap gifts from Cherie (No Blog). Cherie made me a lovely Xmas Stocking, a Pot Holder, a Crocheted dish towel and also sent me some caramel popcorn (YUM !) Thanks so much Cherie - It did arrive with a damaged box and a letter from Australia Post to say that they had inspected it along with Quarantine. But it arrived eventually - Thanks so much.




Here are the items that I sent to my partner Michele over at Calico Daisy. I made her a snowman drawstring bag, a table runner from a Hatched & patched pattern, lots of little mittens to hang on her tgree and a stitched ornament and a few other goodies.

Thanks so much to Linda and Stephanie for organising the swap.



I really enjoyed making the table runner and have cut out another to begin in the next few weeks.



The weekend has been a wintery one. Above is the beginnings of a lovely Chicken and Vegetable soup that I made yesterday which kept away the winter chill. It has really been soup kind of weather.

For those of you that are waiting on your advent information Jo and I will be matching you all up in the next day or two.

I have had quite a productive day sewing today and have only just come in from the studio.

Have a lovely Monday !!

HUGS,

Lovely gifts sent and received. I know first hand how delicious the caramel corn is! It didn't last long in my house. I love handmade dishcloths. They are THE best. What is that cute little pillow with Christmas fabric?

Thanks Fiona! I love my tablerunner and handcrafted ornaments. The hand embroidery style is right up my alley, and even my son pointed out how much I love redwork. A wonderful surprise all around! I'll be photographing your gift Monday or Tuesday and showing it off on my blog. -- Michele
