Jo and I have split all of the Advent swappers into two groups and now have our own groups to manage. You should have all received an e-mail now naming your swap partner. It is very important that you make contact with your swap partner within the next week. If you have any problems please e-mail us.
I have done a litle sewing over the weekend and almost have a "secret" project ready to put together and then send off for quilting to the lovely Sarah . Above is a tote bag made from a few strips of jelly roll - A very simple design but quite useful. I think that most of my family will receive their chrstimas gifts in one of these this year as they are the perfect size for taking to the shops.
Last weekend we popped into the Sunday markets which we like to do as often as we can. I found this gorgeous dinner plate which will look fantastic with sweet little cakes on it.
I have 4 days off now so hubby and I are going to catch up around the garden before the weeds finally take over.
nice bag and thanks for my swap partners details........I have been in touch with her..........
I really appreciate all the work those swap mummas that have gone before us have done, it's a huge job!
Just love that plate! I'm feeling a bit sad now that I didn't join in the Swap! Great idea with the bags for Christmas!
