Santa Sack Swap 2016 finishes with a bang!!!

Here is the hoard of gifts I received from my swap partner, Dee.  We had agreed to do a pillow case instead of a bag and I love mine.  It has tiny little Santa's everywhere.  These sat under my tree teasing me everyday until I opened them on Christmas morning.  I almost opened one or two early but stopped myself every time.

Then on Christmas morning I began opening them and watched all the colorful surprises come forth.
I can't wait to share them with you all.
First let's start with the Christmas wallhanging/tablerunner.  Isn't it stunning? Look at all beautiful fabrics she used along with the great quilting. 
Second comes the fabulous Halloween table runner. This picture does not do it justice.  It is a great combination of fabrics that I have never seen before.  I will look forward to displaying this every Halloween.  As many of you already know Halloween is my favorite Holiday.  

Being a lover of all things froggy Dee made sure that I received froggy things.  Like this adorable mini quilt.  It is sooooooo cute!!!  I just love it and am looking for the right place to display it.
Speaking of frogs, get a gander at this one.  Bet you can't guess what it is besides a frog. Nope it's not the pin catcher the honeycomb is. Plus the honeycomb attaches by magnets to your person. I'm always leaving pins and needles in my clothes from using them as pincushions.  What a great way to take care of your pins and needles.  Ok do you give up?  The frog is a tape measure.  See his eye that has a shadow.  You just pull that a measure anything.  Too cute!!!  Plus look at the great pair of scissors with the scissor keeper Dee made. Not in this picture is a great seam ripper. I am a very happy swapper.   Thank you, Dee.   I love everything, you are a great partner!!!!

Here is an overall picture of everything I received:
Keep on Quilting,

Santa Sack Swap

It's that time of year again!!!  Time to start thinking of Christmas.  If you want to join into a fun Christmas swap this is the one to join.  You have 2 days left to join.  This is an open swap, therefore you know who you partner is.  You are her partner and she is yours. You have to make several items for your swap partner but you have six months to complete them.  This kind of swap helps open up those creative juices.  If you want a challenge this is a great way to meet those needs.

Just click on the above picture and it will take you to the website where you just leave a message under the post for the 2016 swap to join in the fun.

I know it has been a while since my last post and I promise to try harder to post more often.  I have been doing a lot of fun things and just haven't been in the right mind set to remember to take pictures and post.  Working on that!!!

Merry Christmas in June!!!!
