Well today was the day...the 25th!! I got to open the parcel that arrived way back at the start of the month!!
feels cold enough for this today....

but it is Christmas in July hosted by the lovely Cheryll and I am extra excited as my swap partner is none other than Cheryll!!! Yay!!

a beautiful hanger with little bells on one side.....

a beautiful table topper with amazing stitcheries...I think I remember seeing a hint of this one being quilted....

some extra goodies...chocolate and some Christmas gauze bags..so pretty....

a sensational wall hanging....love this Santa....

Thank you very much Cheryll.....such beautiful presents I love them all! Want to have them up now!!
These are the swaps I sent to Jan.....she isn't a fan of Northern Christmas so I tried to not go overboard...

Lots of fun.. how lucky you were to receive Cheryll's gifts and how lucky Jan was to receive yours!! (PS love the fancy border of the hanging you made - how did you do that?!)

Cheryll certainly lived up to her ongoing reputation with so many beautiful things she has made. I oarticularly love the border fabric on the XMAS wallhanging. Not to ge outdone, I see that you have also spoilt your swapee. That floral hanging is gorgeous! Is that a panel and border panels, or perhaps one panel? Very clever .

Hi Sue, Thank you so very much for the beautiful gifts. Your embroidery is stunning, the quilting on the wall hanger is amazing, your table runner is very cheery and the chocolates are gone. Christmas in July is so much fun - both making and receiving. Thanks again, Jan
