SSCS and Xmas

Hope every one had a great Christmas, mine was pretty quiet. Friends pop over for a quick visit Christmas eve, and it was just the three of us for the big day. A friend from out east order us a cater Christmas supper, so no work required on my part, and it was very good. I thought this was a thoughtful gift for our first Christmas as a family.

I was good, and didn't open my SSCS gift until yesterday. Lynda made me this wonderful bag.
I do have a bit of a thing for bags, so can never have enough bags, I love the colours used in this one. She also made me this sweet little wall hanging. I am planning on putting my mini up in my sewing room, so this will be a great addition. Thank you Lynda, I love both of these.

For the swap I had made a larger wall hanging for Robyn, I hope she likes it as much as I like my gifts.

This is such a fun swap, thanks for organizing it again Chookyblue, I look forward to joining in again next year.

The swap isn't the only place that I get quilting thing from, I think my family has worked out that if you don't know what to get me for Christmas then quilting stuff works, here are some of the other quilting items I received as gift this year.
That pretty much covers my Christmas,
Best wishes to you all in 2009.

Hi Floss

Thank you for my lovely wallhanging - I resisted as long as I could but ended up opening it before Christmas........and I am glad I did as it became an important part of my decorating!

I apologise for the late thank you, but life has been hectic of late.

And congratulations, what a lovely Christmas present you made for yourself, She is gorgeous!
