This year I took part in a couple of Christmas swaps.... One was a 12 days of Christmas and I was so spoilt.... this is the last present I got on Christmas day from Cheryll ...

It's a lovely sewing bag with heaps of pockets inside and outside - just perfect for sewing days.... thanks Cheryll for this and the other lovely goodies (shown on the FHFS blog)

Shez sent me this cutest wool rug.... so pretty and perfect - thanks Shez....

Carin from Sweden was my SSCS gifter and she sent this lovely wallhanging

... so much stitching gone into it and just perfect - the colours, the work - everything - thanks Carin

This year all my decorating was hand made - I just love them all and it's wonderful to have some extra pieces to add to it 

Thanks so much to all those people who organise swaps - Shez, Peg, Chookyblue..... its always so much fun for us all....

Cheers to you all.....

Righto, Gotto Go..... not sure what to do - I am feeling very lazy!  Better start with a coffee!
