Gifts for others & myself revealed!

Hope you have had a lovely Christmas spending time with your family
and enjoying this festive time of year.
I thought I would share with you some of the gifts that I made for others
and myself....

1. A star biscuit Christmas Tree that I made for a lucky dip draw
It was given to one lucky lady that usually meet at my place
on a Tuesday... we had a lovely Christmas lunch together and had lots of fun.
We exchanged gifts - secret santa ones of course,
and also enjoy some very yummy food.

2. A bag I made for my Advent swap partner on the forum.
I actually did not swap with this lovely lady...
Trish was the angel to send to another and I sent the advent gifts to Trish
I really enjoyed making this bag.... a Moda Bakeshop pattern

3. Another bag from the Moda Bakeshop for another Advent swap partner
This time it was for Natalie....
I really enjoyed making this bag too and used a charm pack
'Objects of Desire'
beautiful colors and a great bag to use for shopping...

4. This is the reindeer that a dear friend Judy showed
us how to make at our Tuesday craft morning..
I finished this reindeer off and started another for next year..

I received some lovely gifts for Christmas from swap partners and
my darling family, also some beautiful gifts from very dear friends.
I will show them in the next post.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I had been sewing / cooking this last month
before Christmas for gifts...
Did you receive any handmade gifts?
Hugs and Blessings

I love the Moda bakeshop bag Dawn. Lovely design and colours. I didn't receive any handmade gifts but I did receive a scrap quilting book. I made presents for the girls at work seen on my blog. Jill xx

Dawn, hi
What a lovely posting full of Christmas treats. It must have been wonderful to receive such beautifully and thoughtfully made gifts. The biscuit tree looks so yummy and the bags are amazing. I absolutely adore the little reindeer and am going to have a go at making one myself. What a nice thinkg to make in your craft class.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what lovely gifts you received :>)

I was lucky enough to see the gifts before they went to their new owners and the were truly beautiful but I especially liked the bag with the bow on the front and it will be added to my to do list for 2010. see you Tuesday.
