Christmas in July Swap

I have been doing lots of secret sewing for Christmas in July, I have to wait until the person returns from holidays before I can show you what I sent.

Lyn was my secret partner and these are the gorgeous gifts that I received from her.  My little helper helped me with the unwrapping.

First up it came in a huge bag.
Then came all of these beautifully wrapped gifts.

It didn't take my little helper long to get into them.
Beautiful wall hanging Chocolate and Gingerbread.
Look at the cushion it is stunning.
4 beautiful place mats.

Thank you Lyn for my special gifts they will be well used at Christmas time.

Stitchers Retreat Christmas in July

Today I spent the day with some great friends at "Christmas in July" in Monbulk run By Karen Martin of Mrs Martins quilt shop.  Our designers for the day  were Lisa from Fig'n'Berry Creations and Leanne from Petals and Patches.

This is our goodie bag that was on the table when we arrived.
Inside was lots of goodies, these are the patterns from Leanne.
These are the patterns from Lisa.
Also in our bags were these goodies.
Lunch, morning tea and afternoon was its usual high standard.
Woops forgot to get a photo before we started.

I started on one of Lisa's designs today with lots of talking and eating I didn't get much done.
What's a day with some shopping lol  
I now have a lot of new kits to keep me going, just have to find another  24 hours in day to get them done.
