Christmas in July Received and Sent

Hi Guys,
Yes it is me and i have been busy and behind with some swaps. I joined the Christmas in July Swap held by the wonderful Cheryll and Kim. I have had a wonderful time making Christmas items and sending them off and receiving a parcel from a Christmas Angel.

I sent these gifts to Claire i can show you now as i no that she has finally received them. I was a bit worried for a few days as the parcel had not turned up but all OK and Claire has it.

I made this Mat for Claire and love the way it turned out.

Then i make the Towel Toppers and loved them to.

As it has been cold here at night i sat and knitted this Christmas Tree.


Well in the mail last week a parcel came for me from a Christmas Angel. When i saw the address on the back i was sure that i knew who my Angel was and i was right. The lovely Cathy Cates and look at what she sent me i loved it all. I took photos but they came out all dark so borrowed the photos that Cathy had taken from her blog as they are soooo much better as Cathy is a great photographer.

A beautiful candle Mat.

 Have a look at this beautiful wall hanging. I just love it.

A Christmas note book to write my Christmas list in. I so love the fabric look at that Santa and Reindeer.

AND have a look at these little sweeties. I just adore Angels and now i have two more the Purple one is hanging on my handbag and the other beautiful pearl one is on my scissors.

I have loved this swap and will be doing it again next year as it is so much fun to have Christmas half way through the year.

Well that is it from me have some more sewing cut out ready so will into it and hopefully show you soon what else i have been up to.

Have a wonderful day
Hugs Narelle

Beautiful Sunday

Morning Everyone, What a wonderful day it is here in Far North Queensland. I intend to go and stitch out in the sun today and just sit and think of nothing how wonderful. Well thought I would show you what i have been up to of late. Have been a bit off colour so when like that i sit and crochet. Here is the rug that i have finished for DS1 it was for his 21st but that pasted so at least he will get it for this winter.

Oh dear the colour in the photo is not to good the colours are Black,Green and Royal Blue. So then i have started DS2 blanket but i think that he will have to get his next winter. AAArrr this photo is better.

Then i have also been doing some baby rugs this one is for a friend a couple of stations away she had a beautiful little girl.
 Then i found this Chenille Baby wool at the Reject shop and i could not leave it on the shelve it is beautiful as you can see you make this rug corner to corner. This pattern is just so lovely to crochet.

 And i finished off the Rosalie Stitchery that we received at LGS in Melbourne this year. I so enjoyed stitching this that i am going to do another and i used the Cottage Garden Threads 1201 Peacock so beautiful as i am a fan of anything variegated.
We have had an addition to the Chook family Proud Roger the Rooster has joined the Girls. He is so strapping hope to get some very nice chickens from him and the girls.

Well that is it for now have a wonderful Sunday and i will talk to you all again soon.

Been a long time

Hi everyone well another 12 months has gone by and i have not blogged. Have been busy even though i have not told you about it. We have had little rain over the last 12 months and lots happening on the property.
As you can see in my new header i have been sewing and have just loved it. Here are a few things that i have been up to. Went on my first trip to Melbourne to meet up with the Let's Get Stitched girls and had a ball.
Do you all realize how hard it is to get a large group of ladies all together for this beautiful photo well let me show you. As i no how to round up cattle i stepped in and got things organized.
 Then i wondered why they were laughing mmm Look what i found. Miss Jenny you would not believe how beautiful this lady is. So much fun.
 Well finally when every one was looking i jumped in.
 Here are our beautiful Designers this year Vicki, Fee, Dawn and Joy. Also this year we had 2 guest designers Vikki Collumbine and our very own Marilyn duncan. And 1 surprise Designer was Rosalie Quinlin. I nearly fell off my chair as i never thought that i would meet Rosalie.

And then a photo of the girls that i am on the Forum with was lovely to meet them and put names to faces.

Well there is a start to the beautiful time I had with these ladies and when i get my photo's in some order will be back to tell you more about it and see some of the things that i learnt while away.

Have a great weekend.
