Today is the 25th July... and around the world a lot of people are celebrating Christmas in July. For those of us living below the Equator we celebrate the real Christmas during the heat of Summer, so when July comes around and it's the middle of winter... why not celebrate Christmas and be freezing while you're doing it! And of course, the next logical step would be to participate in a Christmas in July swap!! If you want to read more about the swap rules follow this link and read on... there is also a separate blog for the swap which can be found here.
First up I will reveal the gorgeous gifts that I received from my swap partner - Illene from Ret Dairy Queen.

Below are pics of what I sent to Illene... I had a day of finishing a couple weeks ago and transformed all of my recent Christmas stitching into finished pieces for the swap.

|A box full of extras....|
I had fun putting this Christmas package together and it was great fun to actually "finish" off some of my stitching for once! I really should do more of it!!!
So that's it for today.... see you all again later in the week for the Smalls update.
Til next time, happy stitching
