Christmas In July

Such an exciting day today, we got to open our Christmas In July parcels. YIPPEE!!!!
This was the first time I had participated in this exchange and what a treat it was.  I received from Kerrie.  Look at these lovelies that she made for me.

1.  A Rug for my "Xmas Mug of Cheer" hehe
2. Chenille Tree Hanger
3. Santa Hanger

Arent they delightful!  I am soo amazed by some of the lovely gifts that some people made for their partners.  We had to send 3 handmade items.  There is such talent out there!
Thank you Kerrie for such lovely gifts you sent, I shall treasure them and look forward to showing them off this Christmas.

For my partner Deb, I made the following:

Homespun Elegance - Holiday Samplings I - made into a cube finish

Santa motif design - made into a hanging ornie

My first attempt at felt work - Kissing Mistletoe

I am happy that Deb appreciated my cross stitch gifts, I was a little worried as most of the ladies are quilters and/or sewers.  Such a lovely group of friendly and happy exchangers.  Thank you to Cheryll for organising such a fun exchange, I will definately get involved next year.

Until next time, happy stitching

A Diddie Bag & SAL Progress

Hello dear friends, I would like to share with you all this gorgeous finish that Faye made for me.

Its a Fall Diddie Bag and its soo lovely. I sent Faye some of my stitching recently to work her magic on as I am still without a sewing machine and I wanted these pieces made into something special. Here is the magic she wove on a JBW design.

I will wait to share the others with you over coming posts.

Here is my progress on the SAL Sorpresa 3, Part 2 is now finished.

Until next time, happy stitching.
