I´m back home again!

Yes, I´m back again after a wonderful vacation, a road trip to the north of Sweden. Mountains, rivers, lakes, reindeers....and mosquitos......more than one.....
But more about that trip later in another post.

First I have to tell you what was waiting for me when I came home.....my Christmas in July swap package. My swap partner was Jackie and she had made the most wonderful things for me. Look!

A wonderful table runner! Here it is already on my kitchen table! It will be its place next Christmas. I really love this kind of Christmas fabrics, a little bit unusual colours and patterns.

I also found this fantastic bag, the bottom is shaped as an iron and it´s isolated, perfect for me and my iron....


And look at this, a cute Christmas charm pack and a wonderful pattern, had to stop myself from starting that project immediately. And chocolates, they look sooooo yummy, but I will save them for a special moment....if I can.....
I also got a package of quilting pins, forgot to take a photo, have already used them...


Thank you very, very much Jackie!!!

I´ll be back very soon, I have a lot to show and tell....

Take care,

Helena

I love your table runner, we went to Sweden in the 70's and were told to eat raw peanuts so the mozzies wounld't get us.Not sure if it worked, but we did have a great time

Hi Helena, So glad that you like your swap package. It really makes me happy that you are enjoying them already, even before Christmas!! I hope you really get some good use of the Iron bag, it really is great to put your iron in when you are at a class or retreat. But you really could use it for anything you would like! Hope you have a great week!
