Santa Sack Swap Goodies

I was totally spoiled by Pauline.
Thank you very much. Here are the wonderful things she sent me. 
I am so looking forward to using them when my hand is back in full working order. which I hope won't be long, not being able to sew is driving me crazy.

I would like to thank Cheryll
 who arranged the swap. I have really enjoyed it.

Final Day of One week of Christmas

Well it's the final day and I have really enjoyed sharing some of my Christmas photos with you. I would like to say a big thankyou to Cheryll @ Gone Stitchin for hosting the link.

The quilt I made a couple of years ago in a bit of a hurry. A friend came around admiring a Christmas Log Cabin quilt I had on the back of my sofa. So that one went home with her and I didn't have much time to make another. I really like it though.

My two cutie cushions I made when I first started quilting. All the snow on them is embellished using fabric glitter glue. All the quilting is done in golden thread.

This garland was made as a gift a few Christmases ago by Pat and I put it on my recipe book shelf every year.

I've loved hopping over to other blogs to see how other people decorate for Christmas.

Day Three: One week Of Christmas

I thought today I would show you Lily's Christmas decorations. This is her pink tree with heart and teardrop baubles. She has decided to put it on top of my oak blanket box on the landing. She also decided to use my Christmas Pudding runner.

This is Sugar I bought him whilst I was at the craft fair in November. He's got pride of place next to her tree. He was supposed to be a gift for a friend but Lily fell in love with him, so he's staying now

See you tomorrow x

Day Two: One Week Of Christmas

 This is a my tree. It is starting to fill up with gifts already

This is one of my favourite tin wall hangings which I always have up every year.

My friend Pat gave me this decoration a few years ago and I love it.

My Fireplace with a half finished Garland on it. I'm hoping to get everything finished by Thursday as I have got my hand op on Friday.

See you tomorrow.

Cheryll's One week of Christmas

I have joined Cheryll over at Gone Stitchin in her One week of Christmas Link up Party. All we have to do is post a picture or two on your blog this week, either one a day or just once and see who pops over for a sneaky peak.

So here goes my first couple of photos. 
I love the garland on my staircase I made it a few of years ago and I seem to keep adding a few more things to it every year this year it was Orange Slices.The stockings I made last year and I love them.

This is the Welcome hanging in my hall. I spotted it last year in a garden centre and my wonderful friend Sharron treated me to it. Aren't good friends the most wonderful thing ever.

See you tomorrow.

Santa Sack Swap Goodies & More

My Christmas Stocking from Pauline  it seriously overflowing. I cant wait for next week when should get the go ahead to open them. I can't believe I have not tried to peek yet.

I have made this small cross stitched cushion for Lily's Chair. 
I don't think she is going to fit in it for much longer though but it does look nice with a cushion in it, so it can stay.

I love this door hanger I have finished this week. It's soooo cute!

I thought I would show you my favourite Christmas Runner. I finished it a couple of years ago but as it only get used once a year it always feels like it's new. I should have ironed it before I took the photo but I got a little over excited.

Hope everyone has a productive run up to Christmas.
