Christmas in July swaps

I joined in two exciting Christmas in July swaps - one through Cheryll and the Stitching Cubbyhole blog and one with the No Fuss Swappers called a "Clayton's Christmas"

Now I'm still away so can't open my parcels til Thursday night, but I can show you what I made and sent to my partners.

De was my partner in the Claytons Christmas swap. 
We had to send a Christmas decoration. I chose to make one of Michelle's lovely designs.  And add a xmas fat quarter.
And of course a choccie and some xmas buttons.  I know De has opened her parcel - so lovely to have her as my partner.

And in Cheryll's Christmas in July swap my partner was Deb from Frog Cottage blog.  We have similar tastes so had no trouble in picking things to make for Deb.  We had a list to choose from.


Loved this Reindeer wool felt mat (a FignBerry design) and will make this one again.
I also made this little candle mat for Deb - sorry the snowman outlines are hard to see.
And lastly a little Santa goodie bag. Of course it had to have some goodies in it - xmas potpourri, xmas quilt labels and some choccies.  Was such a fun swap - always one of my favorites.  Lovely to have Deb as my partner.  Will be back soon with what I received in my swap parcels. Cheryl
