Christmas presents


Hello ladies, Christmas seems to be retreating quickly into the past so I thought I'd better show you what Santa brought me, the crafty stuff anyway.

This gorgeous bundle wasn't a present, but rather a giveaway win than I collected from my mum's on Christmas day.


I won it from the lovely Monica of Mountain of the Dragon - I don't usually do advertising, but I'm hosting her button as she was wonderful to deal with, so kind and lovely.  Go and buy stuff from her.  Now!

The in-laws bought me some FQs of Summersville...


And my lovely parents bought me this seam tool.  I haven't had a chance to try it yet, wonder if ANYTHING could improve my seams?


I also got a pack of Gutterman threads,


A clay extruder,


and a set of jewellery hammers.


Not bizarre gifts at all!  Oh, there was also a book or two or nine to add to my collection, a voucher for a dressmaking course from my parents, a voucher for a silversmithing course from Mr CA and 2 mosaic kits!

I also had not one, but two parcels from my lovely and very generous friend Sandra.



I recognise this fabric and I want to tell you what it's called but I can't remember!  It's gorgeous though, and my favourite colours!


Parcel 2 contained this FAB zipper pouch, love the shape, love the fabric and check out that quilting!


Lined with what might or might not be a DS print. 


She also tucked in these little labels (no idea whose present I could put them on!) and the typewriter sticker came with the fabric.

Thanks Sandra, you're a star, but you know that!

So, looks like I'd better get busy next year...

I'm glad the goodies arrived in time - it seems our post offices played very nicely this Christmas! The fabrics are from the Perfectly Perched collection by Laurie Wisbrun - Swirls (in Celebration) and Nesting Chairs (in Celebration) --- and yes, the lining of the zippy is a DS print :) I've discovered Laurie's designs recently - I got donkey and raindrop prints a few months ago, and it just so happens that our Nancy got me a set of LW fat quarters - a "Brrr!" bundle in similar red + aqua/turquoise colours - LUSCIOUS!

Oh wow you are going to be a busy little crafter this year!!
You have some fab fabrics there and I'm intrigued at the clay contraption thingy.
