Show and Tell

A quick round up of a couple of things today.
First up is what I sent to Claire in Mrs. Martins Celebrations Swap.

I really enjoyed making this Candle Mat.

And here is what the lovely Claire sent me.

Chockies for Glenn and Me and some Marshmallow eggs for the kids.

Gorgeous Candle Mat that looks lovely in my lounge
and this cute hoop which I have hung in my sewing space.

Thank you Claire.

Now for a proud mummy moment.
Keegan my 10 year old daughter has been working long 
and hard on this stitchery.

It comes out, gets worked on and then disapears but then she
decided what she wanted to do with it. Knuckled down and finished it
and asked that it be turned into a cushion for a girlfriends birthday.

 Keegan got to experience the joy of giving hand made and
the birthday girl loved it.  Win win :o)

Enjoy your Friday,
hugs, Sharon
