Christmas in July Ornament Swap

Merry Christmas in July for yesterday. I participated in the ornament swap organised by Sarah ... it was my first swap and was lots of fun. I met two bloggers who were new to me, one from Australia and the other from the US.

This is the sweet little parcel I received from Bec. I love the Swell fabric she used as wrapping ....



and inside were these gorgeous little fellas. Aren't they sweet? They are from Anni Downs A Christmas Story book which I have on my bookshelf. Must make some things from it myself soon. Thanks heaps, Bec.



Kymberly has posted some photos of what I made for her so I can finally reveal a finished item for Peg's challenge. Do you remember this sneaky peek?



Well, this is what Oliver was checking out. These little blocks are from a table runner pattern by Marg Low which I made last Christmas. I thought they would make nice little decorations to hang on the tree.
