Many, many years ago in a little far away country lived a girl who oftenly went to movie with her daddy to watch movies about wild, wild west. In these movies she saw wonderful bed blankets made from many colorful small pieces of fabrics. And of course, she wanted to have one, but in her far, far away country no one knows how to make it. Then, some decades later clever men invented internet and our little girl (being granny in meantime) finally learned how to make a quilt. From many scraps , in all the wonderful colours in the world.

I like swaps, but these year I participated in only two , both of them are Christmas swaps and on Theusday  postman brought me my first parcel all away from Australia which were sent by Raelene.
This swap is organized by  Helen  and it's called  The  scientists great stocking  swap and has certain rules:
It must include a stocking (bort or made) or equivalent (i got a fab loo seat cover last year!)
and in this stocking you must put - 
A Christmas decoration
             purchased or handmade, we all like pretties!
           nuts, chocolate? Santa always pops yummy treats in a stocking
Something useful 
          socks, fabric, ribbons, hair bobbles? read your partners blog and find out what they'd
          find useful
         or a representation of them. We always got bubble bath, I'm sure Santa thinks i stink!
Something to play with  
       fabric again, a small cuddly toy, air fix model!!!!!
and last but not least
the tangerine 
      or something that represents it...

 So,  I've opend the envelope and found these  sack

full of packages and a Christmas card written in my own language . I have to admit I've read it with tears in my eyes...

And then begun a party. Instead  of a Christmas stocking Raelene made this wonderful apron , and yes I NEED a new apron

This book cover  is going to be my Christmas journal  cover which I have plans to make for quite a while  and my drawers are smelling like ocean now

Something to play with and something sweet... What could be sweeter than fabrics, and look at these cute Christmas fabrics with parotts and koalas...

Every year we have main Christmas tree in living rom, then one smaller for bedroom and I have a little one in my studio decorated with ornaments received in swpas from friends all over the world (literaly). These windmills would have special place on it this year.
And  last but not least here is a tangerina - lovely topper in my favourite hexie shape.
Thank you dear Raelene, you made my heart sing

Hope that these little parcel is not far from you and you would be enjoying it

On Thursday came the second parcel, Australia again but this time it was from Sharm .
The name of this swap is SECRET SANTA  CHRISTMAS SWAP  and when I've opened it

I could only enjoy the lovely paper because I'm not allowed to open it before Christmas.
A whole month of waiting,  and I am a very curious person....

But on Friday my postman came again, bringing me another mail from abroad, this time from USA.
Month ago I won a giveaway on Sandi's blog and here  was my prize.

I won this sweet panel of Noa's ark but  Sandi sent me

also this one

and these two lovely fabrics.

What a lucky girl I am!
Thank you girls

FNwF - finish

Month ago I've started wall hanging with three lovely sheeps and yesterday I've binded it ; today three little sheeps are watching over me while cooking.

This year I'm participating in two Christmas swaps  and yesterday I was working on one secret gift, this is all I could show you.

Delivery man came on Thursday with big box full  with yarn I've ordered for my Mum and me. From these yarn Mum is going to crochet an  afghan for my daughter. I think she would do some kind of granny squares.

What am I going to do with my yarn? Well, to tell the truth I don't know yet, but weather men predict long and snowy winter  so it would be nice  to have a stock.
