What I sent for SSCS

I haven’t had a chance to share what I sent to Berglind for Chooky’s Secret Santa Christmas Swap.  It was fun sending a parcel to Iceland.  Even the lady in the Post Office commented that it was the first mail that she had ever sent there.

Firstly, I made the Christmas decoration using Gail Pan’s great little pattern.

Then I made a table runner similar to one I had made for me a couple of years ago.  I loved it so much and I thought that a similar one would suit Berglind’s home.

It was fun taking photos, as it is such a happy piece.

I also made the sewing case out of Anni Downs’ book “Some Kind of Wonderful” and am pleased with how it turned out.

A fun little parcel to send to the other side of the world.

You must pop over to Berglind’s post as she has taken much better photos than I and you can also see the lovely gift that she made for Cathy.

They are such great gifts Janice. I love the style of your table runner.....might borrow that idea. I'm sure the weather in Iceland is quite different to what we're having! Hope you're fairing ok.

Lucky me!! The bag is full of yarn and needles and the scarf I'm kniting... just perfect :)
Thank you again!

Gorgeous gifts! You would be proud - I have a linen dress here ready to cut up to make this bag! It was given to me for free, even better! Your bag looks fantastic and the prints in the tablerunner are so lovely, bright and cheerful!
