Christmas comes again....

Hang on, this doesn't look very Christmassy !


But what is inside it certainly does....


It is a new fancy cow hide Christmas stocking from Texas full of goodies from Bonnie ( Calamity Jane's Cottage) Look at this Texan Christmas greeting. I don't think I'd ever be able to say it properly with my Australian accent.



The stocking was filled with lots of goodies....


But the most exciting thing of all was a Christmas checkerboard quilt ( being tested here by Colly)



The back - or is it the front - can just be a hanging or topper ...





And the other side is the checkerboard.




What a great idea! And Bonnie didn't know that I really like that range of fabric ( Cold Winter Noses) and I have some charm squares and fat quarters to match so I think I will have to make up something which goes with this wonderful quilt. Thank you so much Bonnie for everything - it is just perfect.


This was the Christmas in July swap run by Linda and Stephanie - Thanks so much girls for a wonderful swap.

For some reason this parcel took a bit longer - maybe it had to go via the North Pole to get Santa's approval, but it was certainly worth the wait.

Hi Lynda, I'm so glad it finally arrived on its long journey and so glad you liked it. I was worried for a little bit.
Us Texans have a little bit of accent but so do you Aussie's and I love to here ya talk.
Keep Stitchen'
