Santa sack reveal!

Once again I participated in Cheryll's Santa sack and I received my parcel last week from Linda .

It Included a lovely knitted stocking to put all the gifts in and I was so looking forward to opening it when Cheryll gave us the go-ahead.



Well today's the day!!
I was so pleased with what Linda had sent - all very thoughtful and sweet gifts.




It included a lovely Xmas bunting , a vintage table cloth , a lovely mug, some hand warmers ,  soap chocolate and a lovely little dove and heart for my tree. They are really special and I must thank. Linda for putting together such a great package.  

I also wanted to show the two little "Ducky" bags I made for my friend for her grandchildren - she wanted them for carrying the bread to feed the ducks so I came up with these and she is thrilled with them.

Woe is me!!!

I am sitting here feeling very sorry for myself with a streaming cold when I wanted to be out Xmas shopping. So instead I have spent the day making mini- Xmas stockings for my daughter for her end of term party at the out of school club.  They are a new pattern from Heather Duff at Kiwi Kreations  She produces some lovely designs and these have stitched out really well.  Still have a couple more to do


Last weekend we had a lovely Xmas lunch at my quilt group and we all decided it would be good to try and get away on a weekend together so I have been busy organising it this week. We have secured a booking for April and so far 11 have committed to going so it should be a good weekend.


I have completed another two quilt tops-the Irish Chain Rose quilt  and the country style scrappy so that means I have 3 ready for quilting so as soon as I have finished all the Xmas bits and pieces I will have to try and get them quilted and finished.
I added an appliqué border of vines and flowers. 




My Santa sack exchange arrived from Linda -it's a Santa Sock with lots of lovely squashy parcels which I have to wait to open !! 



 So I hope I feel better quickly or my shopping will really be last minute as I still have a few things to get for my son and his girl friend before they arrive home next weekend. !!!
