Santa Sack Swap

This year I participated in Cheryll's Santa Sack Swap which has been great fun making things and receiving some lovely gifts.  My partner was Pat and she totally spoiled me.

Here is my loot.

Now I know why it came in two parcel post envelopes.  Pat I can't say thank you enough for all my lovely gifts.  Also a big thank you to Cheryll for organising this swap.

This is what I sent Pat minus the tea towel I sent I forgot to take a photo of that and also the chocolates I sent.

There is only one bag but each side was different.

The elf table runner was designed by Leanne of Lizziethequilter I adapted the pattern to a table runner for ease of posting.

Lastly a Christmas Tree wall hanging.

Thanks again Pat.  I am looking forward to doing this swap again next year.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I am having a little break but will be back in the New Year with more new and UFOs to show you.

December FNSI

I didn't get much done last night as I was pretty tired work gets a bit busy at this time of year with everyone wanting things before Christmas.

I did a little stitching on my Deck the Halls.

I have finished stitching the pink ribbons now to tackle the buttons and words.

Hope you all had a great night seeing.  Thanks to Wendy for hosting. 

Until next time happy stitching.

Mid Week Catch Up

Just thought I would do a mid week post to show what I have been sewing.

First up a finish.  Mini Spools by Thimbleblossoms using Scrumptious, Vintage Modern and Happy Go Lucky.

Next another finish a baby sampler for my cousin's daughter again using Scrumptious.  Gaia's quilt was made with Scrumptious so it will match.

More finishes I used my left over half square triangles from my Night Sky Quilt to make 24 pot holders.

This is the progress on my Night Sky Quilt.

Then another top I finally got around to finishing my Good Night Irene top just need to quilt it.  I am giving this one to my sister to give to her friend who is going to be a granny for the first time in January.

Lastly is my Mini Shine top using Daysail.  Pattern by Sherri McConnell just have to see what I have left over from my Daysail fat quarter bundle before I can back it.

One more photo.  I bought myself a present.

Am looking forward to having a play with this over my Christmas break.  Hopefully it will save looks of cutting time.

Until next time happy stitching.

December FNWF

Hello,  Can you believe it is December and last night was the last FNWF for 2014.  This year has just flown by must be all the quilty fun we have all had.

This is what I worked on last night.

It is a birth sampler for my cousin's daughter.  I am hoping to have it finished by Christmas.  It is a Sew Little pattern and has been around for a little while as I did the boy one for my cousin's son.  It gets put over a canvas.

Hope you all had an enjoyable night and I will see you in 2015 for FNWF.

A big huge thank you to Cheryll for hosting it has been great fun seeing what everyone makes.

Merry Christmas and may your stocking be filled with fabric.

Happy stitching.
