Just recently I have received some beautiful swap gifts.  I love participating in swaps but for next year I am going to take a break from most of them as I have too many things not started or partly started that I haven't been able to do and with postage costs especially since I have been doing some international swaps it gets a bit expensive.

I was in a Christmas mini swap with my Secret Stitching Sisters and I received this gorgeous one from Jo.

I just love all the buttons I already have it hanging in my lounge room it isn't too early to start Christmas decorating.

I also received my last Bonnie and Camille birthday gifts from Claire.  Claire has had some back problems so her gifts were late which she had let me know and it was well worth the wait as they are all so great.

Totally spoilt.

Getting my Santa Sack swap parcel together now ready for posting next week.

Until next time happy sewing.

OPAM October

Happy November can you believe I am saying that I just don't know where this year has gone.  I had eight finishes this month sorry still more secret sewing but this is what I can show.

I pulled a couple of things out of the cupboard to finish off.

Little Man which I showed in my last post.

Jack and Jill pattern by Cotton Way. I won the charm pack of a Flurry by Kate Spain some time ago.

Layer Cake Lemonade free pattern by the Fat Quarter Shop.  Fabric is Horizon by Kate Spain.  This one was a gift to my Hairdresser who is having a special birthday.

Jelly Roll Jam another free pattern by the Fat Quarter Shop. 

Until next time happy sewing and enjoy your Sunday.
