Secret Santa Swap

  'Friends in Stitching" Secret Santa Swap 2009

I received this beautifully stitched bag and journal cover from Kerry. Actually there is a quite funny story attached to this swap as Kerry actually made this gift for Teresa C but so was Helen, which left no-one making for me...but with having 2 T's on his list it was an easy mistake to make, lol!!!! Poor Helen she went into a spin when she found out Teresa had received a gift in the mail.

Anyway all turn out well and what a laugh, I will chuckle every time I use the gift Kerry had made. Thankyou Kerry, we both loved it and your stitching is beautiful, I'm very lucky. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday.

And for my swap partner, Leanne I made a needle case and added a Moda Merry Christmas Banner to her parcel which she was able open before Christmas Day. Swing over to her blog and take a look the banner looks great. I hope she likes what I made for her.

Happy Holidays Everyone

I have had the best Christmas Day with my family, great food and perfect weather...although it rain it wasn't as hot as we expected.  Next week I will doing what Santa and his elves are up to...playing in the sand and dipping my toes in the surf, holidays are so much fun especially the sleep-ins but I know the next 8 days are going to fly.
Enjoy your family and have a safe and happy holiday season.
