Santa Sack and In Print!

 My parcel arrived from Simone for our Santa Sack Swap. Wrapped in the most gorgeous red fabric (the colour isn't showing up very well) was this beautiful Santa Sack.
Simone has used such gorgeous fabrics. If only you could see them in person. They are so pretty.
 Here's a close-up of the stitching on the front.

So now the first two presents are in my sack waiting to be joined by lots more!
I got an email from Cheryll (Gone Stitchin') on Monday asking for my autograph! I had no idea why. It turned out Homespun magazine (Vol 13, No 7) has published a photo of my sewing machine cover with the sewing mat Maria (Life on the Block) made for me in last year's Santa Sack Swap. I had forgotten I'd even sent a photo in so it was a big surprise!
