Christmas in July Swap

"What a wonderful swap this has been thank you Cheryll hor hosting. I have enjoyed making the gifts and enjoyed receiving. My gifts came from Dawn and she told me this was her first ever swap. She made three amazing gifts. 

Aren't these gifts beautiful?

T for Christmas tree beautifully appliquéd.

S for Stockings made from felt and again beautifully appliquéd.
I for inspirational quote. Isn't it just lovely.

Thank you so very much Dawn for my Christmas gifts you did amazingly well for your first swap.

I made my gifts for Jo. It was so much fun choosing what to make which took me ages to decide and then the making. I certainly enjoyed this swap.

My gifts to Jo.

Oops sorry it went sideways. Glad you enjoyed your gifts Jo.

Washing machine topper complete

I am really happy with my new topper. Finished it off today as it is way too cold to be outside. The laundry is almost complete now just a bit of grouting to do and window coverings to work out.

HUGS. Roz.

Friday night again

Tonight with FNWF I am working on making a new topper for my washing machine. My DH has just finished re painting the laundry so a new cover is needed. I decided to do a log cabin pattern.

I have also had a great time this week making cushions from old jeans I picked up at the local
Op Shop. These are for my son and daughter in law. Robyn was telling me she needed some new cushions I just hope they like what I have made for them. The large parcel was posted today and should arrive in Ballarat on Tuesday. They should get a lovely surprise.

I have also been able to make two draught stoppers for my daughter. The old family home they have moved into is a little draughty and cold. These should help immensely I hope.
From this.......

To this.......what a difference some old tapestry fabric can make.

A pretty good stitching week for me this week as well as looking after the Grandies Ryan and Zoe.

As very proud grand parents I wanted to share. Our little Ryan 9 years old won the under 12 years State Pairs Championship for Mounted Games. He loves competing and has always done well but this was a wonderful achievement.

Zoe wanted her photo taken as well here she is holding Ryan's place ribbon.

Hope everyone enjoys their FNWF tonight I look forward to catching up over the weekend to see what others have been up too.

See you soon.
