Moving On...

Along with the fun and joy of receiving beautifully handcrafted SWAP presents for Christmas, I also had the pleasure of creating gifts for my swap partners. I thought I would show you what I made for  Marilyn in the 6 Item Xmas Swap
Tree decoration - beaded year Stocking; Under The Tree - Runner; Something Smellie - Lavender Heat Pack; Fat Quarter; Something For The Sewing Room - Crocheted hat Pincushion, buttons & a Crochet Tape Measure Cover; Something To Read was a Biscuit Cookbook & Something To Eat was A Packet of Shortbread (both I forgot to take a photo of!!)
In the Santa Sack Swap my partner was Nanette
Nanette wanted a bag she could use in everyday colours and a she is also a lover of prim!! A Christmas cushion, 4 Tree Decorations, a box of Shortbread, a Lavender Heat pack, some candy cane and 2 little wooden stockings.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating these gifts for Marilyn and Nanette. I participated in 4 Swaps this year for the first time and loved each one - I was a bit dubious as to whether I was doing it all correctly but I think I have the hang of 'Swapping' now - so it is 'bring on 2014 Swaps!!!' My mind is already designing for the first 3 swaps I have signed up for!!
Personally I am happy to bid 2013 goodbye - it has not been the easiest of years for me. One of the highlights has been my time in blog land - meeting online friends, reading their posts of their lives and achievements, learning from and seeing their creations, simpler lifestyles and loving each blogger's friendship!!
So I will see you all on the 'flip side' and a bright and happy New Year to you all!!!


  1. Happy New Year back at you!

  4. I am glad to see 2013 draw to an end, definately not an easy year. One that started off so fantastic, really was hard slog at the end. Roll on 2014. Happy New Year to you and yours.
    Cheers, Anita.
