Although I did not take good photos on the day, I must share pics of my swap gift, made by our fun Naughty Santa for the day Shez of Enjoying Life.
Our swap gift this time was to be designed by Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly.
Not only did I receive the gorgeous Red Brolly apron, but Shez also included one of her great kitchen hand towels, all colour coordinated baking accessories, plus cookie cutters and cookery book.
No excuses for me not getting the Christmas baking done now.
Shez tried hard to get us to play Naughty Santa, but not much gift swapping was done as most of us wanted to keep the gift we unwrapped, ( maybe better luck next year Shez ).
Thank you girls for such a fun day.

What a fabulous group of women, we enjoyed lots of chatter, much laughter, good food and a bit of sewing at this wonderful venue.
I thank each and every one of you for your friendship, thank you also to Christine for being such a competent driver for Melody, Leanne and me.
The Photos have been shown, I was having trouble with Blogger, hence the late post, but I will add these two, the top photo is of my lovely blue bag made by Sharon of Lilabelle Lane, note the blue wrapped sweet treats Sharon added, ( I have such a sweet tooth ).
The second photo is the bag I made for the blue swap which was warmly received by Barb of Barb's Creations.
Thanks again Girls ,

Like many of our Blogger Friends I love pretty China, especially Tea Pots, I still love to make a pot with loose leaf tea.
I first saw this"Royal Albert" Tea Pot when visiting my local Vinnies op shop,it was in the glass case reserved for special items and priced at $65, I loved it but couldn't warrant paying that price.
Each time I went to the shop I would check MY Teapot was still in the case, eventually the price came down, first $35, then $17, I told myself when it reached $10 I would buy it (scrooge hey).
Well you guessed it, on my next visit it was gone from the case, Oh well I thought someone was happy to pay the $17, good for them.
Imagine my surprise and shock when leaving the shop to see MY pot on a table, and the price $4.
I ALWAYS KNEW IT HAD MY NAME ON IT.
I can only think not many people use loose leaf tea these days.

I used D.M.C 221 for the red work and French General Fabrics for the borders.
Now all I need is a wire hanger as I put a sleeve on the back instead of the hanging tabs used on the pattern.
More finishers on the way, just need to be quilted, hopefully will be on the blog soon.

I am very late showing these little treasures also, as most Christmas decorations would be tucked away.
but these Jim Shore Santas were brought home for me by my Dear Daughter on a recent trip to America, I just love them, and found it hard to relegate them to the Christmas cupboard.
Perhaps we need a little Christmas all year round, and I could keep them out.Cheers R.
