December swaps - arrivals and departures

December has been very busy for the sewing room :)  I finally finished my secret sewing ............. I still cannot reveal anything ................ however, here is a tease

first up, some arrivals, with belated birthday love from CathyM for the Fat Quarter Swap
from CathyM for my Birthday
from WendyW for December FQ swap
from Maree for December FQ swap - look at those gorgeous lace ornaments :)
sent to Maree for December FQ swap
sent to WendyW for December FQ swap
next up my block for Kerry - my last for the QBSA Paper Pieced Swap Club
the block is called Global Concepts - I am relatively pleased with the way it turned out, but will not be continuing with the Paper Piecers Swaps - I just don't enjoy this process very much :(

my November block for Encarna in Spain has arrived safely - mine is still winging it's way to Australia

next are my two final blocks for the CraftMad Family Quilt 

this block is called Road to California

The lovely SueB from QBSA and myself finally met up in real life - after 3 years of bloggy friendship!
We met up for lunch and had a lovely chat :)  We exchanged gifts :)
a charm pack from SueB (I love French General!!!)

for SueB (minus the bottle :))
and last, but by no means least, a lovely surprise in the letterbox :)
from Fiona
