Attached is the bag I made in the grinch fabric.
I made Karen the grinch bag as Dr suess was her fav childrens book writer. 

That's very thoughtful of you, Lisa.

Illene and Maddy are partners in this swap and just look at this gorgeous sack the postman delivered.

Maddy sent these gifts to Illene to fill her sack...

Illene closed her eyes as she placed the gift into her sack.... like the good elf she is !

Also the lovely Melody from HERE gave us this link for some ideas for Christmas embroidery... in case you are in the need for inspiration. Thanks Mel...

SomE XmaS CheeR

Perhaps I am being self indulgent here... for I'm showing you the tote I made for my partner Michelle. We met up last Thursday... chatted away for hours... but did exchange a few gifts too.
My tote was made in Michelle's fav colours... and red and white is Christmassy too I thought... but I added an ornament with a bell, just to be sure.
with some gifts inside...

Michelle also gifted me both September and October packages... oooOOOhHHH so tempted to squeeze... lol... BUT I RESISTED!
Also... as I've been away... not much to tell you about in regards to ideas... but perhaps you can look HERE for a little inspiration.
If anyone finds patterns, ideas or inspiration please email me the link and I'll be sure to add it here for all to use.
Cheers... and HaPPy STiTcHiN'... CHeRyLL
