I had such fun making my gifts and just as much fun opening the ones I received. Here are the gifts I sent to Kaye
A Santa pouch was filled with Christmas goodies (and some sewing ones too!).
I hope Kaye likes her gifts. My swap sender was Illene. We've been friends for quite a while so it was a lovely surprise to receive her parcel in the mail. I was good and didn't open them till the 31st July (even later than we were meant to!) Here are the lovely gifts I received from her -
a handstitched gift tag....so sweet!
This gorgeous little hexi basket was filled to the brim with chocolate santas.....nom nom nom! and had the prettiest glass brooch inside too.
I love this wreath......it makes me happy just looking at it. It will be going up on the front door this Christmas that's for sure!
Can't wait to add some Christmas patterns in here..... it will certainly make it easy to find something to make for swaps in the future.
Thank you Illene, I love EVERYTHING! You really did spoil me. You are one of Santa's top clever little helpers, that's for sure.
I was light on with OPAM finishes for July but I did manage two.....my Santa Pouch above and this gorgeous vintage cushion cover.....
I've yet to get the cushion 'inner' to put in it but the floral border is the flange and the purple inner border is the edge of the cushion. You can see it in the next photo...
I did have a cushion insert but it was far too big. I'm taking hubby up to Townsville for an ultrasound on Thursday, on his calf, ankle and heel.....he has a suspected tear in his achilles tendon - we really are a clumsy couple! While we're there, I might pop in to Spotlight and see if I can pick one up there.
