Christmas Through The Year Finish, Some Gifties and I’m Tickled …Oh My!!

007

I finished these two runners at our FNSI, but then started thinking…hmmm..a little rick rack would be nice too008 .  So last

night I made another and added a bit of rick rack.  Check out Allie’s blog here and see what other monthly finishes our bloggy friends have made for our Chrismtas Through The Year Club.  The Christmas present box is now overfilling with made ahead presents---shocking!  I have never been ready early with homemade gifties!  Thanks Allie!  Yesterday this was in the mail007 …..my September Santa Sack gifts from my partner Sharon.  Oh the temptation!!  Squeeze, squeeze, shake, shake..then I added them to my sack!

It’s Tuesday and today I am very Tickled.  I am spending the whole day with my girl..well after a quick doctors appointment….but the WHOLE day.  WOOHOO!!!!  I am sure lots of chatting will be happening and some shopping too.  004 Speaking of my girl…I snapped this photo of father and daughter at the Angel game we went to last week.  She had these shirts made  a few years ago for her dad and herself.  Baseball has been such a wonderful connection for the two of them…they are both fanatical about The Angels!! The numbers on the back you ask..that represents when they were born (dad was 49!).  Happy Tickled Pink Tuesday everyone :-)!

The rick rack looks great. I am a real fan of rick rack braid. Putting presents in the santa sack looks like a lot of fun. The photo of father and daughter is lovely. Great shirts.

Oh my, those tablerunners are adorable - I love that Christmas number fabric that you used for the centre - it's so perfect!

I would have so much trouble resisting opening those packages, way to go on the willpower.
I received the cherry pattern last week, it's soooooo cute and will make a happy happy quilt....I love it. Thanks a bunch.

Lovely table runners, the ric rac really finishes it off.

It's a great feeling having gifts ready in advance, it's just a shame I've ended up using most of mine for birthday presents!!
