SSCS 2012

Look what I was lucky enough to receive from Nancy 'Near Philadelphia'.

 Thank you Nancy for my runner, book, scissors, nailfile and notebook.  The colours in the runner are perfect for our outside-inside room. It's the 'back deck' you have when your husband doesn't like mosquitoes or too much wind. It has screened louvres for 2 walls and a large folding door to separate it from the original part of the house. We painted it in very bright out-there colours, opposite to the pale colours in the original part of the house. So the runner fits in perfectly!

 The above ornament and the runner below is what I sent Ulla in Sweden. Have a look at her blog - the runner looks great draped over a tree in snowy Sweden.

Thank you Chookyblue for running this swap in what I know was a very busy year for you.

I'll be back soon with some photos of the sewing I have been doing. The colours are not my 'normal' patchwork ones. I am trying to step out of my comfort zone.

Happy New Year
Kayly
