'Christmas In July' Swap

Once again, Cheryll has done a wonderful job of co-ordinating this fun swap... thank you Cheryll, I've enjoyed it as I always do!
 This year, my gifts arrived from O'Faigh...
 
A beautiful runner & placemats, festive fabrics, a timber tree-shaped ornament... so many goodies!
Thank you again O'Faigh for sending me some Christmas In July swap joy!

My gifts were dropped off the sleigh to Shez... it's possible Shez loves Christmas more than anyone I know!... I'd been wanting to make this Gail Pan mini quilt for so long, so I took my opportunity to make it for her.
Inspirational Words - Gail Pan mini quilt
Santa - goody bag
Snowman - ornament 
(not sure if the link will work, it seems Shez's blog has 'been removed', hopefully only a temporary glitch)
 I love this design so much, I'm going to make another... & keep it! cheeky me
 *~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

The Site Manager & I went for a lovely stroll along the Foreshore of town this morning... it was cold, but the sun was shining, just beautiful... it's not a pretty sight at the moment... so many Works projects happening in the same area...
 but I didn't mind... & of course Site Manager was in heaven with all that grass & all those trees to pee on; where does it all come from?!

Have A Great Week!

Lovely gifts, both sent and received. The little wall hanging is adorable, and I can understand why you would want to make another for yourself.

You are so lucky Anthea sent you such lovely gifts. But then, so is Anthea as that Gail Pan is so cute! Sometimes is nice to have a different view - even if it is construction. And when it gone it really looks great! lol
