Fun in my fabric world....

I started to feel Christmas-y today!

And that is because of this...
My SSCS for 2011...ready for mailing to somewhere quite distant...it is so exciting!
I hope it is loved by it's new owner and that she can feel my delight in every stitch.
I love the fancy post bag, don't you? Now it is time to wait to hear it has arrived!
Last year I sent to lovely Anne Heidi...
and Nicky sent to me!
 Before that my gift was from Cheryl...
and I sent to Carole!
We still keep in touch and I love seeing their gifts...they are very special!
Thanks dear Chookyelf blue, for coordinating this swap!

Love that package Cardy... I fell in love with the bag you sent to Carole, and have 'book marked' it to make at some time..
Hope you get something lovely back..

Anne Heidi said...

It's so exciting- I need to wrap my gifts and send them this week :-) I love the gifts you sent me last year- the pretty Christmas cone ornament has hung in my sewingroom all year- I just couldn't put it away with the other decorations... The bag and the pincushion are both so cute, and they have been used A LOT :-) So Thank you again!

Michele said...

Lots of swap fun for you :-) Christmas is getting here fast!

Cheryl said...

Wonderful pressies. You have been so busy!! It's so exciting to think of the packages flying all around!!

Hi! Greetings from Finland! Your quilts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world! :)

Carole said...

I still fondle my bag! It hangs in my sewing room for me to admire. I do keep some things in it. It really is much too beautiful to carry here and there every where. I just love it! Of course I do take it our to my sewing room to show off to my students at the Shoppe! ;o) You are the best! Thanks again! Cheers!
