I am catching up on swap projects so don't have much to show for my three current projects. Just a couple of blurry peaks ; ) Hand sewing is done so now need to get the machine mojo back for Sunday.
One of my swaps is The Santa Sack Swap organised by Cheryll of Gone Stitchin. My swap partner is Maree & so far I have the gorgeous sack shown below & a number of pressies to tempt me. By Christmas Day we will have swapped a sack each & a total of 13 presents. Mine is out of sight in my spare bedroom to keep the temptation as low as possible.
I am also doing the F.R.I.E.N.D.S Swap organised by Kristine from Sew prim Kris. I love the idea of this one, send 7 presents, 1 starting with eash letter in the word friends. Lucky me, my swap partner for this is the talented & kind Shez of Enjoying Life. Check out all her recent swaps - lovely!
Some letters are easier than other & a bit of artisitic licence may be needed. So far I am getting a little bogged down on E - eggs, ears, easel, elbow, elf, envelope? It will all sort itself out as I move pressies from letter to letter finding the best fit.
Brutus felt very neglected during the last month so here is is trying to get some 'me time' as even when I was home I was working on the books for the Calisthenics Club I do Treasurer for. Naturally the busiest time of year for the club coincided with work's busy time. By sleeping between me & the keyboard, he got cuddles as I typed. He rested his head on the mouse pad on the laptop though so every so often work disappeared and he kept changing my MYOB codes. There were tears from both of us! The neglect is over now so I am again getting to type alone.
So only one other great priority for today GO EAGLES! C'mon West Coast, you can do it!
Tracee & Happy Brutus & Contented Honey xx
