Christmas Swaps...

I've been a bit slack lately writing posts for the blog. But it's that time of year when suddenly it seems that the posting dates for the various Christmas Swaps that I have signed up for, are soooooo close! 

So I have been stitching...and stitching...and having fun despite the rising feelings of panic that I will run out of time...gasp...horror! 
Tonight I wrapped up one lot of gifts ready for posting...one swap can now be ticked off the list! 

One gift to go under the tree and the small one, my swap buddy can open straight away...it's a decoration/ornament...
The teddy fairy button was one of the Christmas buttons I bought from the Quilters Store in Salisbury (Brisbane)...it looks cute in the centre of the hexagon flower. 

Here's a glimpse of the other gift...yeah, I know...more hexies! Lol

Now my swap buddy doesn't live in Australia so that was a great excuse to use some great 'koala' fabric that I bought at Fantazia in Tweed Heads South a month or so back...


The next due date for posting swap items looms next week and I still have some stitching to do for that...so I'd better get busy :-)

It can be very easy to spend more time blogging and reading other blogs than actually doing anything!! Good luck with getting the swaps finished in time. xx

Very pretty craft work Maria.
And I love the way you wrap your parcels.
I enjoy adding 'glitz' to gift wrapping, especially at Christmas.

The koala fabric is wonderful ! You seem to be so organised... I haven't really got around to thinking about Christmas yet...partly because its not my "turn" to cook this year...but I must start thinking about presents and cards soon ! x
