Christmas in July Swap and One Xmas Item a Month

What an annoying two weeks I've had - no internet service for two weeks. It's like not being able to sew for two weeks. I hate not knowing what everyone is up to lol. I am in the midst of changing providers, but in the meantime my old provider decided to work tonight. So while the going's good I just had to show you my absolutely gorgeous gifts from Sue, my lovely secret swap partner in Cheryll's Christmas in July swap.  I just loved doing this swap - I wonder why?

All so beautifully wrapped.
How gorgeous is this little cushion?
And love this beautiful table centre - and lots of lovely quilting
And how spoilt was I with this most beautiful bag - lovely and roomy - can you see the cute little mouse in the stockings in the bottom right-hand corner.  Just love my gifts Sue - thankyou so very much, and I can't tell you how thrilled I was.

And I've had my One Xmas Item a Month with Narelle at Pins and Whiskers finished for a few days, but of course have not been able to show you, so sorry to be late Narelle.
This is one of the projects from a Christmas in July class with Gail Pan at The Christmas Beetle I did recently. "Running Postman" was the Cottage Garden Thread I used.

Well lovely to be back - still have show and tell from my holiday to show you. Look forward to checking out what everyone has been up to. Have a lovely weekend. Cheryl
