A Spotty Package Arrived!

 My secret partner in our Spotty Swap turned out to be none other than Keryn from Christmas Creations.
After unwrapping heaps of bubble wrap I found this gorgeous owl box.
 Inside were some spotty gifts.
 WOW! Will you take a look at this gorgeous table runner! I have a few table runners but no Christmas ones, so now I do. This one fits perfectly on our table.

 How cute are the snowman bells on the ends!
 There was also a cute owl mug filled with some yummy lollies and some pretty spotty ribbon.
Thank you for my lovely gifts, Keryn.
You have really spoilt me.

Thanks to Shez and Peg for organising this swap.

Let's Book It!

 I thought I'd join Sharon from Vrooman's Quilts for her Let's Book It this month. Sharon is encouraging us
to pull a book off our shelves and find a new project to work on. She may have old books in mind but I wanted
to start something from my new book.
 I just love Gail's new book. There is not one
project in here that I don't want to make!
One stitchery is done and the other half way through.

Head over to Sharon's to see what other books
people are making projects from.

Spots For Peg!

 My partner in the Spotty Swap was the lovely Peg. 
This is the hanging I made for her.
I added a few extra spotty goodies. It's a bit hard to see 
but those are spotty buttons.
It was fun having you as a partner Peg. 
I really enjoyed putting your parcel together.
Thanks to Shez and Peg for organising this fun swap.

 My Quilty Stitches Sampler is finally framed. I was given this frame a few years ago and it turned out to be the right size for my stitching. Still tossing up if I like the cream 
with the white aida or whether I should paint it. 
But for now it can stay as it is.
Thank you to Corey (Little Miss Shabby
for this great stitch along.
