My Secret Santa Christmas Swap... to Gracie

I really loved being a Secret Santa to Gracie... and loved making her gifts!!


I chose to make Gracie a table runner in colours she loves; this design is one I pulled from a magazine some time ago, but have since realised it's Fiona Ransley/Designs By Fee. The tote, well I just was itching to make this! It's a Lyn Briggs pattern. Both of them are what I call "make-agains".
I am so glad that Gracie likes my gifts to her, & this swap has been a great opportunity to make new bloggy friends and see some wonderful gifts being sent and received.
Chookyblue, if we all use our best manners and promise to be good Secret Santa's, please can you organise SSCS again in 2013???????????

Over the weekend I really need to get the Black Hole Family Dump-It room Sewing Space tidied up because I really want to get back on the Pfaff again soon... things to sew... stuff to make... it's the smallest of spaces & gets out of control so easily... can my Fairy please be sent back to me now?!?!

~*~*~Happy Weekend Everyone~*~*~

What lovely gifts you made for Grace.
The table runner is called "Lorraine's Flowers" made in memory of one of our blogging friends daughter who died of cancer...

Gorgeous gifts you sent to Gracie. Bet she's thrilled to bits with them. Hope you are making progress with your 'black hole'.... I really need to face mine too.
