This year, I decided to only take part in one Christmas swap and it was Fee’s Advent one. I was lucky enough to get Illene as my swap partner and here are the gifts I received for the first 3 days of Christmas……
Day 1: a fragrant Tea Rose Sachet which smells deeeee-vine!!!!!
Day 2: yummy chocolates…..has been helping ‘no end’ get me through the year 7 quilt making process!!!!! LOL
Day 3: a wonderful diary to record my efforts next year……(and the dates I definitely mustn’t forget…like Hubby’s birthday!!!! )
Illene, it’s as if you’ve known me forever….you’re picking all the things I love!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
And a big thank you to Fee too *mwah*!
And as for the year 7 quilt….it IS progressing…would you like to see???
There’s only two more rows to do before sashing and borders, but seeing as I managed to sew one entire row upside down (after I examined it thoroughly, wondering why the corners weren’t matching properly, a friend pointed out the names were back the front!!!!), I decided I needed a break!!!! But it is coming along nicely, and surprise, surprise, it’s just like my design!!!!!!! woohoo!!!!!
Cant wait to finish it now, but I’m off for a weekend at Airlie Beach with Hubby and we’re meeting my brother and S-I-L, both whom I haven’t seen for 4 or 5 years and going to a good friend’s 50th birthday party. I better make sure I pack my camera!
Have a wonderful weekend…. whatever you are doing, enjoy it to the full.
