Santa sack swap and other photo's

 This is the gogeous santa sack I received from my swap partner Cheryl ( no blog ) doesn't it just make you wish Christmas was here already :) I LOVE IT!! it is soooo me Cheryl!! The two parcles that arrived with it have already been squished,sniffed and shaken and now they safely reside inside my santa sack waiting for December to arrive.....Come on Christmas!!
 Thanks Cheryl,I'll be posting yours off next week after you're back from your holiday,I hope it's turning out to be a lovely time away for you and your family.
 I've also been busy finishing off this blanket I started a little while ago using up the leftover wool from my baby ripple blanket....I love how it's turned out!
 All neatly folded....I just used a 6 treble stitch and one dc stitch for my blue edging as I didn't want it to overpower the effect of the blankets simplicity....
MMmm now what will this extra square turn itno???? I still had enough wool to make up six squares from each colour so thought I'd turn them into a cushion cover,just need to do the back and then this one will be a finish as well.
I'll be back tomorrow with more photo's of a special meeting that took place today so keep a look out for it :)

Love your finished granny square rug! It looks wonderfulBarb:) I will have all my squares finished this evening and then I can begin the sewing up. Your Santa sack looks very intriguing....you'll have to hide it out of sight to resist temptation!
