At long last I've got round to posting about my hug swap goodies. I received the beautiful mug wrap and mat from Renata. They are beautiful and the sewing is so neat!
I've decided not to use them for their proper prupose as I'd hate to spill tea over them so the mug wrap is being used round one of my pencil pots in my craft room and the mat is on display in my craft room.
So thankyou again Renata and I hope mine sent to you arrives soon!

Today I recieved my goodies from the Autumn swap so thankyou very much-they are lovely.
I recieved a lovely autumn mat, a coffee themed teatowel which will look great in the kitchen and lots of lovely autumnal ribbons.

And I know my Autumn swap partner has recieved her goodies. I only took a photo of the mat I made which I did machine appliqué around the leaves. It's the first time I've done that technique and I was really pleased with how it turned out. Unfortunately I can't find the photo anywhere on my computer! I know it was on here because I was looking at it earlier but I can't find it in any folders now! So I have put the photo on which was on Paola's blog-i hope she doesn't mind!

I think I might make some similar place mats for the Christmas table like this. I'll add it to the long list of projects I want to get done by Christmas!!!
