Camping and Xmas Swaps

I have much blogging to catch up with after escaping to the bush for the last five days. We camped beside the beautiful Ringarooma River amongst fox gloves which played havoc with my hayfever but it was so relaxing. The sound of the river and birds was wonderful for my soul.
 
We did spend Xmas morning at home and I was so excited as I opened all my gifts.
These are the gifts I received from Marie of Wonderwoman (Not!) in Chookyblue's SSCS 2010


Gorgeous decorations to adorn my house every xmas, Thank-you Marie for the beautiful pressies and to Chooky for hosting another great swap.
These are the gifts I received from Carol - Narromine Quilt Club in Marie's (On My Verandah) Xmas Swap




Thank-you Carol, I felt so overwhelmed with all these beautiful gifts, it made me cry with delight!
Thank-you Marie for another fun swap.
I posted gifts to Maricarmen and to Gai in both of these swaps.
That's it from me for today, I'll post some more pics tomorrow and in the meantime I have loads of washing to do!
Cheerio!!
