Christmas in July. Another fun swap

My partner in this Christmas swap was the lovely Noni from
 She does the most exquisite cross stitch
She stitched a top for this Christmas box
It was full of lovely goodies
So cute

And just look at these two beautiful hangers
Thank you so much Noni
It was nice to get different gifts this year in the form of cross stitch instead of quilting
These are the gifts I sent to Noni
She has posted way better photos than me, so pop over to her Blog for a look

I have noticed that some of the trees I make tend to curl at the sides
If I have sent you one and it does I have found that a wooden scewer inserted through the back fixes this problem
Thanks to Cheryll for another great swap

Another FNSI Done and Dusted

Friday night saw me joining with Wendy and friends for a night of stitching
I have set myself a challenge to not buy any fabric and only use from my stash
So far Iam doing very well with only a few very minor purchases from Op Shops
So on a wet and cold Friday night I set to work making nine patch blocks
I did make many more than what Iam showing
Now Iam off to see what others got up to
