I have received my Christmas in July Swap gifts from Cherie (No Blog). Cherie made me a lovely Xmas Stocking, a Pot Holder, a Crocheted dish towel and also sent me some caramel popcorn (YUM !) Thanks so much Cherie - It did arrive with a damaged box and a letter from Australia Post to say that they had inspected it along with Quarantine. But it arrived eventually - Thanks so much.
Here are the items that I sent to my partner Michele over at Calico Daisy. I made her a snowman drawstring bag, a table runner from a Hatched & patched pattern, lots of little mittens to hang on her tgree and a stitched ornament and a few other goodies.
The weekend has been a wintery one. Above is the beginnings of a lovely Chicken and Vegetable soup that I made yesterday which kept away the winter chill. It has really been soup kind of weather.
For those of you that are waiting on your advent information Jo and I will be matching you all up in the next day or two.
I have had quite a productive day sewing today and have only just come in from the studio.
Have a lovely Monday !!
