Xmas in July

Our Friends in Stitching group held a Xmas in July swap and we had to make a stocking for our partner. I received the most gorgeous package from Peg, this beautifully stitched stocking with wee rusty bells...

and inside was full of lovely goodies, 2 pretty fat quarters, notebook, key fob and a bookmark (it's hiding in the photo somewhere) and a tube of chockie balls with a wobbly head santa on the top!
Thank-you so much Peg, I feel very spoilt and lucky to have had you for a partner.

Now the stocking I made went to Lynda, here's what I made but you'll have to visit Lynda's blog soon to see what else was inside!
This was my own design with yo-yo's and little gold bells, such fun to make!
Great swap ladies!!
