Christmas Angel Swap

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Mine was a very busy, finishing today with a lovely family Christmas get-together in Melbourne.  I showed you the beautiful gifts I received from Karen, my partner in Mrs Martins Quilt Shop "Christmas Angels" swap, but havn't showed you what I sent to Karen, or I hope I havn't - the busyness of the week has made me a bit forgetful, hasn't it Barb lol. First off was a small applique wallhanging.

Stocking - had been wanting to make this pattern.

Felt candlemat.

A sewing item - I made Karen a pin cushion and a little scrap bag for thread offcuts, etc

Gift tags and ornaments.

A fabric postcard - I must admit I struggled with this a bit - never done anything like that before, especially with no pattern as a guide.  And last but by no means least was a stitchery to fit a 6" x 4" frame, and I received this cute little pattern from Michelle of RagTag Stitchin as a "freebie" when I ordered some patterns off her.It was perfect to fit the frame, and in fact I loved it so I made another for me.

I am a bit behind in posting for Cheryll's 7 Days of Christmas so promise to be back later with some piccies of my xmas decorating. Cheryl
