I completed my swap gift for the Great Global Christmas swap a couple of weeks ago and it has already arrived in America to my swap partner Kim (no blog). That means I can show you what I made for Kim ...
|Good Friends Warm the Heart wall hanging - Michelle Ridgeway design from a Country Threads magazine|
|Festive Tree bag - Hatched and Patched design|
Kim has posted my parcel and I am loving the thought of receiving something all the way from America! A big thank you to Fiona Marie for organizing this swap.
We have just come home from a yummy dinner out to celebrate my father's birthday ...
|Happy birthday Dad!|
Family gatherings feel very special and caring after losing Mum and Dad has been such a dear in his obvious love of Mum.
In other news, the lovely Cherise has awarded me the Liebster Award.
This award is to showcase up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers. Thank you so much Cherise for giving me this award and for the lovely comment you left! The rules are to copy and post the award on your blog, thank the person who sent you the award and link back to their blog, then pick five blogs and leave them a comment. Last time I received an award I struggled to pass it on in case other's didn't really want it, but this time I thought I would award it to some of the lovely ladies that I 'met' first through blog land, ones that meet the criteria, of course.
