Gifts from Melissa, and YES I am a showoff....

My very exciting package from Melissa arrived late last week. I've held off until my camera returned for a pic. I just wanted to show you the amazing work that Melissa has undertaken on these gifts! This fantastic stocking with stitchery detail and cute trim and a tin "wishes" box with printed wish cards inside. So. so cute, and trimmed with spots - perfect!

Melissa was my swap partner for the Embelish Christmas Ornament Swap - thanks Em and thanks Melissa. It was great to do a swap too with a price limit of $AUD15.

And yes, I am a terrible showoff... Actually I am excited! The first pic's of my project in the next issue of Australian Homespun is being shown HERE.

This is the first project I have had this magazine and I made the protype in January - ages ago! Hooray. I noticed projects from at least 4 other bloggers in there too.....

Love the bag you designed. Too bad my son is too old for it. Nice to have made a more 'boyish' than 'girlish' projects. Happy to see that these come up more and more. And yes, I think you should be very proud with it, so you get to show off!
