These are just some of the gorgeous gifts I've opened so far in the Christmas Advent Swap. My wonderful partner Annette (in America) is spoiling me.. Amongst the goodies, was the lovely little handmade bag with some strawberry buttons inside, the heart pincushion with crochet lace around the edge, the purple button with 'imagine' across it, lace hearts, a beautiful tin with DMC threads inside, pretty pink and white check ribbon.... Thank you so much Annette, your gifts are so appreciated and loved!!
Above is an apron I made for a 'chooky' friend - Julie - (who I met through blog land) and is beautifully modelled by my son (who threatened me to not show above the shoulders ! ha ha)
I also painted this little guy for Julie as well. It was so nice to get out the paints as it's been quite some time. So lucky the paints hadn't dried out.
And I have finally finished some presents for Christmas. These dolphins are a Melly and Me pattern I found in the latest Homespun magazine. There are 3 new babies in our family this Christmas and this pattern was perfect for littlies.. no buttons!
I love these Amy Butler fabrics... and I have also used them in some other presents I've almost finished.. more pics to come.....
Hope everyone has a great week.... Enjoy the build up to Christmas,
