Merry Christmas I know its a bit late but time fly's when you are  having fun and a lot of fun has been had in our house over the last few week. The boys and I have been riding to the beach for a swim, games, spending time with family and a trip up into the mountains. So here is the lovely things I received with SSCS swap, my present was from Anne Marrie. Anne lives in Norway and for my ornament she made these lovely woven hearts. I can remember making these out of paper when I was little and never thought to make them out of fabric.
For my main present I received this lovely bag , so my colours and reminds me of spring every time I look at it. I also received a  calendar, thimble and little saying to hang up. I was spoilt so much and thank you Anne for the wonderful things
Now my partner was Sharon in New York and I have to say went a bit nuts on the ornament, lets just say sometimes bigger is better .

Its a pattern I have had for awhile , its a Christine Book's pattern and I have been waiting for just the right time to make it and decided as Sharon is from the Big Apple, well she needed a big stocking .

It measures around 1.5 meters long and I do hope she was a very good girl so Santa filled it for her. The main present is a table runner that I designed my self and have to now write up the pattern for a quilt teacher who would like to teach this pattern next year .,

I know Sharon liked it and I am pleased that she got to keep it as her daughters where very keen to take it home. It is hard to believe that another year is coming to a end but it has been a full year and that is not always a bad thing. I have to say that the new year is going to bring a lot of changes to my life as the week before Christmas I was told I had Hemochromatosis ( to much Iron in the body ) and now have to give blood every week for the next few months  and become a vegetarian which is not to bad but the hardest thing is no Sugar and as every tooth in my mouth is a sweet tooth that is not going to be easy, but we will do it .

I would like to wish you all a Safe and Happy New Year and look forward to blogging  with you all next year
