Christmas in the Summer time.

Hello my friends.
Sit down for a few minutes and visit with me.
These last few weeks have flown by as they have been so busy.
This `Santa Trio` by Disa Designs I made for one of my friends 
as her Birthday Christmas gift .
She doesn`t have a blog but was so excited I made them for her. 

In the pattern they didn`t have noses but I added those on.
So cute.

A thankyou  to Chookyblue for hosting this years SSCS.
Peg of Happy in Quilting blog parcel had these lovey 
gifts for me:
An Angel table runner,  

Peg I love your lovely hand work.

A tissue holder (this to go into my stitching bag),
some chocolates, a satchel (this will be in constant use)
and Leanne Beasleys `Butterflies and Blossom` pattern
with fabric and rick rack. I am looking forward to making this.  
Thankyou again Peg.

This was my gift and  for Jan of  Little Red Hen
with a chocolate star. I forgot to take a photo of that.

Merry stitchmas tree was the ornament for Jan.

Now this would be a very long post if all gift shown today!

Katrina of
   put my gifts in this cute bag.
For some reason the photo has turned on this
Joy ornament. On the tree it is straight!!

These Christmas balls stitched in this ornament.

A beautiful pin keep,

`The Nativity` by Country Cottage pattern,
(a must to stitch for next Christmas)

and a wall hanging `We three kings`.
Thankyou Katrina for my lovely gifts.
