NEW FABRICS

I purchased quite a bit of fabric a couple of weeks back from the "Fat Quarter Shop" from their clearance sale and as the A$ is so strong there
was very little difference with the conversion rate.
Two parcels arrived this morning, two more to come, they were
all sent at the same time, it amazes me they don't arrive all at the same
time ...... I love receiving packages in the mail.

Cheers

2010 ADVENT SWAP PARCEL ARRIVED

This is the envelope that greeted me this morning when I went to the Post Boxes to collect the mail. I really enjoyed the Advent Swap last year and was so excited when I received an e-mail from Fee to say she was organising one again this year, it's so exciting opening a little
parcel every morning in December.

I put them in this photo copy paper box at work.

My friend at work decided they needed to be number so she kindly put Christmas tags on them for me and this is what they look like now.

BEANIES FOR THE TROOPS


I came across an article in "Creating Country Threads" a few months back about craft groups making beanies for our troops serving overseas. I don't belong to a craft group so I decided to make some and include in care packages for Christmas, I have made six these are what they look like. These are crocheted and are so quick and easy to make.They are all a little
different so each person recognise their own.

PAPER PIECED SANTAS

I made these on the weekend, except for the noses - I had everything in my stash, they may be small BUT very time consuming, you will find the pattern over here. I will head up to Lincraft later this week to buy some tiny red pom poms for the noses. I am considering making more and including them in Christmas cards I send out this year.
