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
