and this adorable Sewing Cushion
with some lovely hand stitching
I also do love the fabric range used as well.
So thank you Fiona for the lovely gifts and also thank you to Chooyblue for hosting this swap again.

Another year gone and another SSCS completed. My partner Annette from Jindi's Cottage has opened her parcel, so now I can show what I made her.
A mini quilt hanging
and mug rug
Also there were some extras I popped the parcel too, which I didn't get round to taking a photo of.
Earlier in the month she got to open these cute decorations which I learnt to make from this You Tube video
Watch out tomorrow for what I received. I have been spoilt too.

I have also made in the last couple of weeks a couple of batches of Baileys Fudge. It is divine and real easy to make. I found this recipe on Facebook, but you can also find it on my recipes page here
Not long till Christmas now .....yay!!

My copy of Homemade & Happy arrived last Friday when I was away. Hubby read it before me .... lol. Lots of adorable projects to make in it.
Also when away on Friday I joined up to the Tilda Club which is being run here in New Zealand and Australia and have got my first two packages.
I am doing it through Cottage Flair in Rotorua - a place I can do some serious damage to my bank account in.

With the move and my study I have not updated much on swaps I have been in, so will try and do some in the next week.
In September for the QBSA I sent this block of to Elizabeth who asked for a block suitable for children
And in the same month sent this one off to Raelene who asked for a star block
For the November swaps I sent these 6" blocks to Helen
and this 12" block to Mary for the QBSA

With this fine weather views of the mountains are getting better, though with less snow on them
Though with the mountains comes the cold and I have never had my fire going in December, but did on Monday. It is summer here now but does not feel like it yet....waiting patiently.
