FHFS

Thought I would show you the last of the gorgeous gifts from Christine in in our Friends Having Fun swap.  This has been a fun swap and is one I will be continuing with this year -
I just LOVE this - Christine has made me a gorgeous little hanger with "Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm a snowmanaholic". Love it Christine.
I had often thought I would love to make myself this little hanging pillow and now I don't have to.
And this gorgeous wallhanging was the lovely one I opened on Christmas Day. I still have it hanging on my wall. Just my colors too Christine. thankyou so very much for being the most wonderful and generous partner.

Now in Chooky's Secret Santa I had forgotton to take a photo of the other lovely gift that I opened on Christmas Day along with my beautiful xmas table runner.  Lyn from New Zealand was my partner -
She had included this lovely sewing roll in lovely French General fabrics.  Lyn this will be perfect to keep handy with my current project.  Thankyou so very much for my gorgeous gift.

Now every Christmas my boss has given me a Settler Christmas bear for the 7 years I've worked for her, and this is this year's. Her name is Carol -

Isn't she lovely?
I have two old wash tubs that I've had painted and this is where they reside all year, rather than put them away.
 
43 degrees here today and terrible fires nearby, so lets hope the thunderstorms that are coming through bring some relief and not more fires from the lightning. Have a great weekend. Cheryl

These are all lovely gifts.
I like the idea of receiving a gorgeous Settler bear every year. And the tubs you have them in look great, too!
