SSCS Gifts

Yesterday I showed you the ornaments sent and received for Chookyblue's SSCS.  Today I will show you the gifts.

From Tracey I received these lovely gifts.  The Yankee Candle smells divine.  I was quite amazed I could still smell it as have a horrid cold.

Then to Julie I sent this Zig-Zag tablerunner made out of Tilda Fabrics.

This is one of my favourite patterns to make, and if you want to have a go, you can find the tutorial here for it.

Again another great swap held and a big thanks to ChookyBlue for holding it again.

SSCS Ornaments

This year I cut down on the swaps I have been in previously but I did join in Chookyblue's SSCS.
For those that do not know about this swap, we had to make a decoration which could be opened when the parcel was received, and then out main gift on Christmas day.
Today I am showing you the ornament I sent and what I received.
I sent to Julie over in Australia and this is the ornament I made her

It is a good pattern and you find out how to make it here

Then all the way from Australia I received these cute ones from Tracey

A Sprocket Pillow

When I was getting ready to make my items for the A&P show back in October, I trialed making a sprocket pillow to enter too, though I only signed up one to enter, which is on my previous post.

Was pretty chuffed with the end result and is now sitting on my bed.

If you would like the pattern to make this easy pillow just head on over Cluck Cluck Sew for it here.
