My gifts came from Kim, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the gifts Kim made and sent to,  I was very spoilt.

I received this lovely fabric basket.

This is a wall hanging quilt, look at all of that wonderful embroidery.

This is also a wall quilt, bigger than the one above, as you can see by the floor tiles. I love all the embroidery, the colours - my favourite colour being red of course.

It didn't take me long to fill the fabric basket with fat quarters and other goodies.

My partner Pat doesn't have a BLOG, this is what I sent to her.

I made this snowman fabric heart Christmas tree ornament.

I made this table placemat with felt and embroidery.

I really enjoyed making and piecing together this placemat.

I also sent pat a few extra goodies, this great Christmas oven mit.

Some floating candles

And also a fat quarter.

Thank you Cheryll for organising this wonderful swap, it was so much fun.  Looking forward to
Christmas in July 2016.....
