Christmas in July

Back in May the lovely Cheryll from Gone Stitching  asked if anyone would like to do a swap for Christmas in July ....
We were asked to send three gifts, a sewing item. a handmade gift in her colour choice and something just for her.....
As it had been sew long since I participated in a swap I was happy to join in.
My partner was Sherry who lives in US. Her colour choice was Purple or Yellow...
I found the two Fat Quarters and made her a table runner....

Sewing item ...

A thread catcher

and something just for her I stitched a tiny hoop embroidery that is on a chain.

Sherry's parcel arrived this week
and I received these great useful gifts

A tea pouch, card holder, a coaster and small sketchbook'

My colour choice was Blues or blue/white and I am thrilled with the hand made gift Sherry made...

It's perfect on my bench where we make our cuppas........

Huge thank to Cheryll for organising the swap and Sherry for all my lovely gifts...

Must away and fed Lacy.....

Happy Stitching

Hugs  Maria 😊
