My XMAS in JULY parcel I sent

I had  fun working on these gifts. Last month I showed a sneak peak of my progress.
It went from this

To this... H is for HELPER 
I found this pattern in HANDMADE Vol.24. no 11.. called.. ELF WISH LIST

And then this

To this.........

Then I added...... T is for TREE. On a cushion.

And for no.. 3 gift. It was ...... S is for SNOWMAN. It's a candle holder. Well it started as a wine glass. Turn it upside down, paint it up and put a candle on it. Hope it gets to you Cheryl in one piece..

As well as these extra goodies. A knitted Dishcloth and a box of chockies to have with a cuppa..

My partner was Cheryl from

I hope she loves them as much as I do. I had a friend tell my that you love anything Xmas so I hope I have filled a spot in your celebrations...

Have a look here to see what others have made....

I am linking up with Peg and Kris and adding to my growing list of finishes for OPAM.

Then will be adding my binding to my total for BINDING BLITZ with Julie
