Christmas Swap

C.R.A.F.T. Christmas Swap
it is that time of year again...
Some of the nicest ladies in the world are members of  the C.R.A.F.T. group online…it was time for our annual Christmas Swap, my partner was Lynda from Brisbane (not far from me).
We met up today to swap our gifts face to face.
I met Lynda in October this year at our Retreat and she is a very nice lady…

We met at the Kuta café on top of Mt. Coot-Tha what a view…
We had to choose gifts that we thought our swap partner would like, starting with each letter of the word Christmas…

The Gifts were wrapped individually with a tag on the front for each letter.

                   C- Charm Pack “Ruby"
           H- Humbug Bag
                   R- “Red” & green Angels
                  I-      “Incredibly” cute Owls
         S- Snowflake Soap
T- Tea Cup
M- Mesh Bag
   A-  Amanda’s Key
      S- Spotty Scissors

Pictures at home…

Close up Pictures, Don't you just love those cute little owls and coloured Angels.

I Love Ruby fabric...

This bag is just gorgeous…
I am so Blessed by Lynda's beautiful and thoughtful gifts...we had such a lovely time at lunch, can't wait to do it again...

I am still working on my "Summer to do List"...I will post it here when I am finished it. 
Summer is officially here as today is the First of December...we had a lovely day, the heatwave broke and we ended up with a big storm in the Ipswich area, which I had to drive through to get home from my lunch with Lynda.

hope you are all stitching up a storm for Christmas...will let you all know what the Book winners think of their books when I hear from them.
Happy Stitching
