Clayton's Christmas

Swapping is a lot of fun and this "No Fuss" swap hit the spot again....

"Clayton's Christmas Swap"
a Fat 1/4... Christmas buttons... Tree ornie and a treat.

Christine  from "MacDonald's Patch" sent me these wonderful gifts.....



Thanks so much Christine they are just fantastic.....
 I think I might display my ornie in my sewing room until Christmas time.

I sent my gift to Jan and I'm happy to say that she liked them....



It was great that our little swap seemed to be a hit with all the girls.

Another fun day with the girls....

Sandi is such a funny girl.....

chocolate spoons but I think she has had way toooooo much sugar.....


Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of stitching going today....
heaps of chatter and silliness as usual....
Teresa is away enjoying  a holiday with her hubbie and we did say we would be good but of course that isn't going to happen.....
Only one photo today and no stitching photos....

So Toodles for now.

Tuesday with the girls....


Another great day with the girls......
yummie morning tea.....


My days stitching...... not bad if I do say so myself



My big surprise....... yayyyyyy

Teresa has finished this wonderful Felt Tree Skirt......
There is sooooo much work on it, Teresa gave it to me last Christmas and she was a bit annoyed with herself that it wasn't finished but I didn't care as it is just what I wanted and here it is all finished....
 so exciting and I love it....
now I'm early for this Christmas......

Thank you so much Teresa....


There's nothing like a cuppa and cake with friends to make the perfect day.


Toodles....
