SSCS 2014

EEK December 31 already and I have
not posted about our 2014 SSCS.....
The Swap master will be cracking her whip on me for
 sure if I don't get this up today...
Love you Chooky xx
Just wanted to say again how much I appreciate you
organizing this special swap for all of us....
You truly are an angel....
I received a beautiful pieced and embroidered ornament
from Grethe all the way from Norway....
It looks lovely hanging on my tree and
makes me smile and think of Grethe....
On Christmas day I opened my gift and it is so beautiful and
made with love just for me so that makes it even more special.
I love it Grethe....Another big thank you xx
This is the ornament that I sent to Noemia in Portugal....
A punch needle ornament by Anni Downs....
I doubled this size of the original and just love it so will be
 making some more of these for gifts for next Christmas....
So you all had better stay on my nice list....LOL
This is the main present that I sent to Noemia....
A table topper with a stitchery by Rosalie Quinlan....
Fabric by Lynette Anderson....
And design by me.....
I wanted to try and keep my gifts as Australian as I could....
The lighting in my pictures is not the best....
The reds are much more vibrant....
I really enjoyed doing the stitchery for this table topper....
And so another year comes to an end and I am happy to say
it has been a good one for me...
My days are spent looking at the positives and the people in
 my life and being thankful for simple pleasures....
Lots of hard work that is slowly starting to pay off....
I wish all my special friends near and afar a
Happy and Safe 2015 and look forward to more special times
 spent with blogging friends in the year to come....
 "Happy New Year"
 
Until next time, Happy Stitching
 
Kate

Lovely gifts Kate. Great idea to enlarge the punch needle, easier to get a good result I imagine. Wishing you a wonderful 2015.

I just want to Thank You on your lovely Blog, I so enjoy reading all your posts. Its lovely to see all the work that you have been doing. This inspires me to get back into stitcheries and sewing once again, soon I hope. All the Best for 2015 and looking forward to seeing your posts with what you are making and doing. Ooopps I have that stitchery design that the very talented Rosalie Quinlan designed, I so love all her work and fabrics and I have many of her lovely kits. I think after seeing yours I had better get this one done. Thanks you often brighten my day with your blog.
