Christmas Swapping

Yesterday I got to spend the day with my sister Janine.  She and her family had arrived from Brisbane late Saturday night.  One of our traditions is to do a Christmas swap with each other every year.  This year we had to swap:

  • 100 x 2.5" fabric scraps
  • a christmas themed fat quarter
  • a Christmas Dvd - which funnily enough, we both gave each other the classic It's a Wonderful Life
  • a Christmas ornament
  • and an edible treat of some description
  • any other little extras (optional)
The top photo is what my sister received from me, and the little bag I made for it all.  I forgot to photograph the ornament, and the next photo is what I received.

Finally I also received  three months worth of my Liberty subscription,   I am getting a nice little stash of these now.

Hoping you all have a wonderful week ahead, especially to everyone who has children finishing school this week.
