The mail man has really been good to me.  I signed up for the once a season swap with Cheryll at .  These swaps have been so much fun.  Sharon at was my swap partner.  Just look at the lovely cross stitch Sharon did.  I am just in love with it.  I feel like there where more goodies with this.  I tried to keep everything together so I could take a picture.  Thank you so much Sharon for my lovely goodies.  

This is a candle mat swap I also did with Cheryll at  My swap partner was Jinnie at  I love the candle mat that Jinnie has made for me.  The fabrics are just beautiful.  She also sent me some yummy chocolate.  You know chocolate always makes every thing better.  What wonderful purple fabrics too.  Thank you so much Jinnie for all of the goodies you sent me.  I can not wait to display my Christmas candle mat.

This is the back of my candle mat.  I just love these fabrics and oh the stripe for the binding is perfect.

This was an early Christmas surprise from Cheryll at  Y'all know how I love surprises.  Just look at all the purple yummyness and all the way from Australia.   Thank you so much Cheryll I love all of my goodies.  

I am so happy that life is getting back to some what normal.  If there is a such thing?  I have been back into my sewing room and oh it feels so good.  I can not show you what I have been up to until Shug receives her apron. Oh yes I entered into another swap this time it is a Christmas apron swap.  Shug start watching your mail box I mailed it today.  The apron swap is through Sue at  Y'all should visit Sue she has some really good recipes on her blog.
