Nearing the end of 2012

New Years Eve.
This year has been busy.
 I`m pleased to say with encouragement from you all that there`s one quilt finished and a couple nearly there. Also I`ve enjoyed stitching for others as well.

My SSCS gifts for De .
 A applique Tea Towel, Christmas doll from a Homespun Magazine.
 The mouse ornament from 2012 `Just Cross Stitch Christmas ornaments`.
 The mouse close up was on my earlier post on the 1st of December

  This table mat 
,the star shown on the 1st of December
and fabric goodie bag shown below are my gifts from illene to me.

Another exchange that I was part of.

Ellen  recieved these gifts from me for `Christmas exchange` by stitched with love_ exchanges wih Lainey.

Kaye sent me these. Thankyou Kaye the nugart was yummy and I loved everything else.
 The reindeer is hanging on my tree. 
 The cute owl is a data traveler. My YD showed me that :).
 The bead mitten and stitchery pattern will be something to do at a later date.
 I love tins to keep threads in.
 Plus the ornament was one I looked,so thankyou for your lovely stitching. 
 Well looking forward to a happy healthy New Year.
Sometime there`s a good movie on at the local theatre on New Years Eve but not this year.
Since we where up at 4am for an early start for hubbys work  this morning I think we will be having an early night.
Thankyou for your visiting over 2012 and look forward to your visits next year.
