Santa Sack Swap & 1 Xmas Item a Month

I had a lovely day stitching yesterday with Lisa from FignBerry Creations and Katie from Cottage Garden Threads. And I promise to show you photos of our lovely day, but I was meeting up with Carol there and as she and I were partners in Cheryll's Santa Sack swap we decided to hand deliver our gifts in person rather than post them. Here is the gorgeous bag Carol gave me full of wrapped gifts. How lucky am I. I had admired this gorgeous bag over on Melody's blog and now I have one of my own. 
And this is the bag of goodies I handed over to Carol -
All can be revealed in late November/early December.

Lots of other stitching happening this month, so not a lot of progress on my two projects for 1 Xmas Item a Month. However, I did finish one more block of "Merry Mistletoe" from Michelle of Rag-Tag Stitchin -
Today I spent working on my nieces quilt as her 18th is only three weeks away, and ta da - a top
Ready to be quilted . Will share some photos of my stitching day tomorrow. Cheryl

It's always lovely to be able to hand deliver our swap parcels. I was lucky enough to get one of those bags from Mel. They are gorgeous, aren't they! Lucy's quilt has come out nicely. I'm sure you'll get it quilted and bound in time for her birthday.

I am going to do that with my partner too as we don't live too far from each other but I have a few more gifts to finish off first. Love the bags full of goodies. Your birthday quilt is very pretty. Hugs......
