My swap surprise.

As I had mentioned in my previous post that at the Mill Rosie Get together we held a swap. It was all by choice if you wanted to participate or not.
Boy am I glad that I did. I received this beautifully hand made wall hanging from the lovely Christine from MacDonald's Patch

It even came with this adorable heart hanger.
Thanks again Chris I love it!
In the mean time I have been very busy making giant tissue paper flower balls.
My friend Robyn was in desperate need for some ideas to decorate a hall for her friend Elizabeths wedding.
We had to be very budget conscious. So we through a few ideas around and now we are both super busy getting things made.
We have made 18 of these so far we probably need about 22 more then we have to get cracking on the centre pieces for the tables.
No pressure it just all needs to be done by the 15th of December...
Yes...this year.
 I think that we might as well throw in a couple of Birthdays, work break-up a kris kringle, end of year party for meditation and a high tea end of year celebration for our Gisborne quilters group.
Like I said no pressure......hehehehe

I love your mini quilt gift. The design is gorgeous. I certainly don't envy you organising a wedding . Deadlines are such a pain and you are right, December is so busy.

I love those huge tissue paper flowers, they always look so festive and cheery and slightly romantic and mysterious.
How have you been since Blogtoberfest, Tracee? I just wanted to let you know that I'm hosting another (albeit gentler and more introspective) blog challenge over the month of December called #reverb12.
Would be so rapt if you joined us!

There's a little giveaway too. :-)

Take care,
