Christmas in July!

This is the first time I have done a 'Christmas in July' swap so it was exciting to open my parcel this morning. I swapped with Sue in Australia and we had arranged to open our parcels at the same time so at 7.30 this morning for me and 3.30 in the afternoon for Sue we linked up on Messenger.

Here are the lovely gifts I received from Sue. First of all they were all packed in this neat little bag.

Sue and I belong to the same hexie swap group so she knows that I like hexies.

Something French! and some cute charms.

Some crazy.

And this embroidered panel which will make a great wall hanging.

So here is what I sent to Sue. Sue very kindly sent me the photograph as I totally forgot to take any before I wrapped the parcel!
The stitchery is a Lynette Anderson Design. In the bottom right corner you can just see a stack of mini charm squares - I cut one from each of the Christmas fabrics in my stash. They are big enough to make hexies with or any scrappy project.

Well, Happy Christmas in July everyone!
