FIS swap sent and received..........

My online group Friends in Stitching had a Christmas swap..........5 small parcels from the 20th Dec and a main present on Christmas Day...............Now I did show what I received on the group blog at Christmas so that's ok..........firstly what I made..............one of these key fobs was one of the smaller presents..........I don't have any pics of the other gifts I sent.......you can see what I sent here....but small bits and pieces and some cards...........

I got this pattern when i was at Anni's - The Home Patch late last year.............linen and "Strawberry Fields" fabric.............Fig Tree Quilts "Notions To Go" I started making 2 and I have another nearly finished for myself...........

some of the stitching I worked on out at the cows last year............... finally into a finished project...........2 of the stitcheries from Tis the Season quilt by Natalie Bird.......so different to my Tis the Season quilt................
All these goodies went to Kylie..........I loved making for Kylie......we have met a few times too which was lovely.............enjoy the gifts Kylie...........
now De was sending to me...............the first day i got a bottle of champagne...........(I think De has been reading my blog)..........I the bag with a some of the smaller parcels...........

A cute reindeer to hang on the tree............
This gorgeous backpack was just perfect.............
