Swap Opening

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).

"Pinwheel" for on-line group's 6-1/2" BOM
"Lincoln's Platform" Not Quite Civil War Quilt
"Calico Puzzle" Not Quite Civil War Quilt
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.
