Santa Sack Swap

I participated in Cheryll's Santa Sack Swap again this year.  My partner was Kaye from Kitten Stitching.

These are all the lovely gifts I received.


A teddy stocking isn't it so cute.  I just adore teddies.


A beautiful pillow.  Kaye does beautiful cross stitching.


This photo is a bit deceptive as this is a little pillow much smaller than the other one.


And this pin cushion isn't it adorable.


And this beautiful framed toy shop cross stitch with beading.



A tea bag holder.


Some extra goodies.

Thanks Kaye I just love my gifts and a big thank you to Cheryll from Gone Stitching for organising this great swap.

OPAM November

Wow it is the 1st of December and I just can't believe where the time has gone.  I had 14 finishes this month including some big quilts that I quilted myself and had been tops for some time.

I finished all my swap sewing so I had some selfish sewing time.


I forgot to take a photo of these finished but they have gone off to new homes. I so need to make a Snowman for myself as I love the pattern I have made it twice both for swap gifts.


A Hazel cushion that is on the way to Germany.


My Thimble Blossoms Sampler all fabric was from my stash including the backing.


My Christmas Wreaths.


This is the stack of quilts I finished.  I quilted them all myself.  


Christmas in the Cabin pattern by Janelle Wind.  


Framed from Simply Retro book by Camille Roskelley.


Wild Thing also by Camille.


Shine by Sherri McConnell.

Apologies for the bad photos I hadn't had a chance to take photos over the weekend and it is a bit dark already here tonight.

Until next time happy sewing.
