My Swap Package Has Landed At Peg's Home!

My partner for the Christmas In July Swap was Peg. She has received her package so now I can show you what I made for her.
Some of these pictures are borrowed from Peg's blog. I was so worried about my sneak peeks giving away any secrets I forgot to take pictures of the whole project. Thank you Peg for allowing me to borrow them.

I love this stocking! I want one too! You almost didn't get this Peg.

I received an ornament just like this a couple of years ago from a friend. I thought that it was so cute. I made one too.

A pincushion, scissor holder and needle case. They fit right inside this stitching bag. She is all scrunched up so I could fit her in the picture. Her broach is from my grandmother's button box.

Someone asked what the buttons were. They are supposed to be her pigtails!!

I could not send a package without a snowman. I love them!!! I had so much fun making these gifts for Peg. Thank you again Linda and Stephanie for hosting this swap you both did a great job. Enjoy Peg!

My Next Project

I think that this is going to by my next project. I love cross stitch and I have been away from it for quite awhile. As you can see it is a Blackbird Design. The name of it is Willow House. I love the color of the fabric. It is 28 count tobacco. I am going to use weeks over dyed floss that the pattern calls for. Has anyone stitched this pattern? I hope to show some progress very soon.

It's Here!

This is my swap package from the Christmas In July Swap hosted by Linda and Stephanie. My swap partner was Rachel. This is the lovely Santa Bag that she made me.

Inside the bag were all these lovely goodies. A poseable reindeer, I am going to call him Rudy. There was fabric, floss, ric rac, a pattern, stickers and a bag with a reindeer embroidered on it. There was also a lovely card. I love them all. Thanks again Rachael.

Thank you Linda and Stephanie for hosting this swap.. It was a fun.

A finish And A Win

I have finished another block for my" A Primitive Garden Quilt " from Primitive Gatherings.
I believe that this is block number four. I love this quilt. I do hope that I get it finished one day. Primitive Gatherings is starting this as a block of the month again this summer. Check it out on their site if you are interested.
Kris over at Dandelion Quilts had a give away and I was the lucky winner of a charm pack. She said that she hoped that it would inspire me. I do have an idea of how I am going to use it. Thanks again Kris. These charms are lovely. I have been busy with my Christmas in July Swap. I will be back tomorrow with a peek.

I will chat then. Have a great day!
