Its Starting to feel a lot like ....

Christmas!

Anyone else feel that Christmas kind of just sneaked up on us or just me!
I always feel like I have loads of time and then bam it's here.  It's not that I don't enjoy Christmas, I love it, but I always  seem to seriously underestimate the time I need to put in place all of those creative projects that fill my head at this time of the year.  I can sit for hours researching just the right creative project for each special person, that I handmake for at this time of the year, sometimes more time researching and not so much creating.  

This year I thought things will be different!
One thing I have loved being involved in is joining the great creative folk at The Modern Quilt Guild of Ireland.  I am sure you will know that I love quilts and I really would like to learn more about quilting, so I am in awe of some of the talented people in this group.  I am very much a beginner and feel very privileged to be associated with them.

I joined them in a pincushion swap and this is the beautiful pincushion I received.


And can you believe it that I forgot to photograph the pincushion I sent to my partner lol.

So I was very excited to learn that the same group were organising a Modern Christmas Table Runner Swap.  I signed up and researched what my swap partner liked in terms of colours, patterns, designs etc.  I finished my table runner, packaged it up and it went in the post today. 
This is what it looks like, I have my fingers crossed that she likes it.
 
 
We also had to include a little Christmas decoration, so I included this little penguin that I had made.


I really hope she likes it and I also can't wait to see what my swap partner has made me.

 I am so very excited, I will probably be stalking my poor postman for the next couple of days!

Nice to see you posting again. Love your table runner. I can see you're going to be making some beauties in the future. This is a great start to quilting. Cute penguin too.
