Christmas in July Swaps

Friday was the 25th of July so it was time to open my swap.  I waited till Angus came home from school to help me.  I found out opening the last present that Melanie from was my swap partner, and boy did she spoil me.

First up is a beautiful wall hanging with decorations for the tree.  The second picture is a beautiful table runner.  Thank you Melanie for the beautiful gifts.

My swap partner was Melody from the house on the side of the hill and this is what I sent her.
Thank you Cheryl for organising a wonderful swap.

Another swap was on Our Craft Forum  Shez from Enjoying Life was my partner we decided to swap on the Saturaday as we were meeting up at a sewing day.

Once again I was very spoiled with a table runner and some handtowels, I have already picked the spot at christmas time for these goodies to go on display.  Shez also gave Angus a gift,  books he was very excited and  we read them that night.

My gift to Shez. A Gail Pan stitchery, A Christmas bag, mm's and a chocolate christmas tree.

I'm Back

The start of the year I decided to return to study to do my Aged Care Course.  I found the homwork, placement and schools days took away a lot of time from my crafting.  I have now finished so now it's time to get back into sewing.

Some finishes this week are.

Some baby rugs, with 2 babies coming into the family later this year I had none in reserve.
A Merry Little Christmas table runner by Leanne's House, this was a sewing project from a sewing day, anther UFo finished.

I have also a couple of Christmas in July swaps so I will be back to show you them over the weekend.
