Friday night was opening night for our on-line group's Christmas in July swap. This year we decided to make each other Christmas stockings.
Jo made this beautiful, original stocking for me featuring bells, yo-yos and a perfectly stitched tag.
I love the tag Jo wrote and attached to the front of the present:
Wrapped inside the stocking were some other goodies - Toblerone, bath bombs and hankies
Thank you so much Jo.
My other partner was Leanne. The stocking I made for her was based on a Kookaburra Cottage design and I made a tag featuring a Hugs 'n' Kisses angel.
I also included a punchneedle lollipop - fat-free and sugar-free. I really like these lollipops and think I'll have to make a few more to decorate with at Christmas-time.
I did a some sewing later on Friday night before starting to dismantle the sewing room (so we could install the new wall units).

And just to break up all that pink sewing I finished off the Pirate Quilt Top. I love making children's quilts - the fabrics are so happy and colourful.
