This week I have been lucky enough to receive both my swap parcels so I have photos yay
First up the advent swap, I was paired with Sarah and this year decided I'd make and decorate boxes for each day and then fill them. Obviously I can't show you what's in the boxes but here they are..
Made really easy but gorgeous flowers to decorate them
And these are my advent gifts from Sarah sat ready for me to start opening, roll on Dec 1st
Then my Christmas Dec swap, I was paired with Rosalily (Pen) and made her this garland
and then off course included a selection of lovely bits
Lots of lovely little packages
Cute pastel felt decorations
More felt decorations (sorry fuzzy photo)
Painted wooden decorations, I love the doves
And a fuzzy one (dec not pic hey)
Some lovely papers
A fat qtr, ribbon and little fuzzy balls
Thank you so much to both of you.
Anyway yesterday was a glorious day so I took my camera with me when we headed to the beach
As soon as we got out of the car Daisy heard another dog bark on the beach and took off
It was her pal Gertie (an enormous Newfoundland who lives two doors along from us)
The next hour was spent wallowing in the water with gertie
And charging around the beach with Cindy (gertie sister?)
Days like these I really appreciate where I live.
Unfortunately today is blowing a gale and G has very kindly given me his manflu so I'm not feeling great but have too much to do for Saturdays craft fair so up and at it..
Oooh forgot to mention pop over toThat Crafty Fish for a chance to win the new Pip Lincolne book Make Hey!!
