Christmas in July.

My Christmas in July partner was Vickie in the Northern Territory. She sent some mysterious brown paper  packages which I managed to keep until today before I was able to open them. (Well maybe there was one or two squishy pokes.) 

I held out for as long as I could and around lunch time I opened one to find a reindeer which jumped out gasping for air, looking very pleased to be released into the wilds of a new home. He is so cute - and one of those patterns I keep saying I must make. What a great choice for me Vickie.
The other two parcels had the words holly and tree written on them and inside there was a Twister table topper ( another pattern I have been meaning to try) and a tree shaped pot holder. I took the photo with the top of the potholder ( where the hand goes in) but if you look in the back of the reindeer photo you might be able to make out the other side with the gorgeous fabric picturing the Twelve Days of Christmas. I love it!
Thank you so much Vickie, and thanks too to Cheryll for hosting the swap.

On the home front there have been a few health issues and also my laptop is very sick. I am trying it keep up with things using the iPad but there are a few things I haven't worked out yet. Still, I suppose it is a start. I still haven't worked out how to put links in - I might have to come back and try to do that later. 
Waving to everyone out there and hoping to catch up will you all again soon.
