Handmade Christmas Swap!

Joide at The Haby Goddess recently ran a red and white themed handmade gift Christmas swap.

Here was my effort for Lesley....

 and then wrapped because I do love wrapping a noice parcel... complete with red and white candy canes....

and my lovely gift received yesterday from Cathy!

A good (machine embroidered!) tea towel is always handy. Gotta say I do love a Christmas one too.
I love the little paper photo frame for the tree, and of course no handmade gift is complete without the handmade card.
(Nb, I made my card above too!!)

Thanks Cathy, I love a parcel in the mail and participating in a swap is always a bit of fun.

Quilt cover

This is my first attempt at a quilt cover, no pattern or insturctions, I just winged it!

A friend had an odd sized quilt bought overseas that no linen could be bought for in this country, so I offered to help out and custom make a cover for her baby girl.

I am happy to report it went swimmingly, no mistakes, no unpicking, it fit like a glove and there was no dramas with buttons or buttonholes. All things considered, for me this is amazing!
