Hand applique

This past week has been busy, as always right before Christmas!

But I got some lovely mail! My SSCS present from the very talented Maree at Farmyard Crafts arrived in the middle of the week- and how fun to find out that she was my secret Santa since I read her blog!

Look at this lovely ornament she stitched for me, it is absolutely gorgeous!  Since we don't put the tree up until the 23rd I had to hang it on the wall so I can see it!  Thank you so much Maree- it is beautiful!  The other gift is safely stowed away until Christmas Eve.
The SSCS parcel I sent was also received this week by  Jenny
 at Daisychain.
 I just want to say a big Thank you to Donna for arranging this HUGE swap- I know it is a lot of work, and I really appreciate it!

I also managed to do some sewing. This is a Christmascard holder- there
 is a big pocket at the bottom where we can tuck all of the cristmas cards we receive. This is from a new pattern by AnnAKa- quick and fun to sew!
We're off to my Mom's birthday party, thanks for stopping by :-)
