Swaps.....and a few finishes

 For Cathy's fat 1/4 swap I sent these green fat 1/4's and threads off to Sharon.... Love the leafy green one :)
 Sharon in return sent me some yummy red fabrics with pretty buttons and ribbon, but this wasn't all Sharon sent me I received another parcel from her with a belated birthday surprise........
 Some yummy fabrics with some hot choc/coffee sachets :) Thanks Sharon I loved receiving both my parcels from you and I'm sorry it's taken me this long to actually blog about them. I hope we can be swap partners again another month :)
 I'm also involved in a framed hexagon swap on my craft forum and this is what I'm sending to Vicki, sorry it's a bit late Vicki but things got on top of me the last couple of weeks. I hope you like the Marg Low stitchery I chose :)
 I'm also in another birthday club ( Cheryll's ) and this is what I sent to Wendy, I hear that she liked what was sent so that's good :)
 Wendy was also in Cathy's fat 1/4 birthday swap so I sent these along as well  :)
 Some secret swap sewing has been going on and now I can finally reveal one of them,this gorgeous Anni Downs stitchery table mat which I made for Shez and presented to her at our Mill Rosie meet up Yesterday, from the look on her face she liked what I'd made for her PHEW!!! I'm thinking I might just have to make another one for me as I found it really hard to give it away lol :)
 I also included these little bits and bobs to go with Shez's table mat, Shez have you found the applique needles in the little tin?? :)
 For the Mill Rosie Blue Themed lucky dip swap I made this Rosalie Quinlan heart and added a charm pack with matching DMC threads.....
Finall a picture of a finish for the Christmas basket, may just need to do a coupe more as they were so easy to stitch up and put together :)
I'll be back later in the week with more photo's of our Mill Rosie bloggers meet and some of the antics we the quiet table got up to :)

I love all the beautifil swaps you have received and given. I think I recognise that blue charm square pack as being Hampton Blues? I have used the same for a wallhanging and my bedside table mat. I loove that Annie Downs table mat and the red birdie hexie.Ofcouse the other things are also very lovely as usual.
