I have lost most of my pics for 2012 & so have borrowed pics from my swap partners to show you what I made for them.
In Chookyblue's SSCS Swap my partner was Siri in Norway. This is the peek of her main project I gave back in November.
And here is the finished cushion sitting on Siri's couch all the way in the Northern hemisphere - amazing! Siri's happy & so am I.
In an earlier post you saw all the amazing projects that Karen from Just Purrfick sent me so here is the line up that I sent to her.
The Christmas Tag - thanks to Red Brolly for this free design.
Something sewing - love this book by Lynette Anderson (see her new book Stitch It For Spring to preorder from UK Book Depository on my side bar - $8.93 bargain!).
The Christmas Decoration - simple with a steampunk embellishment.
A starter kit
A Christmas Postcard - a Jenny from Elephantz design. It says 'Ón Christmas Day at half past three, I'll think of you, you think of me'. The words you can't see are under the chocolates. I didn't know whether to add tea or coffee satchets so went with chocolate pops instead. I sent Siri one of these too as her decoration in the SSCS swap.
Something to nibble
A Candle mat - a very large candle mat - I thought this funky table runner would suit Karen's bright Christmas decorating so had to fit it in somehow.
An applique wall hanging - the idea for this was in a American quilting magazine but I had to add in Rudolph for a bit more humour.
A Santa Stocking, with happy dancing santas....
And the piece de resistance..... the steampunk robin stitchery & frame. I wasn't sure about this while stitching, not colours I am used to, but when it hit me I had the perfect frame & I got it in there, I realised it was better than I hoped for. The main thing is Karen loves him so yippee!
I can't believe I made so many gorgeous things! I love them, Karen loves them & Mrs Martin ran a great swap - so thanks to both of you for making this so much fun!
