It looks as though it's going to be hard for everyone/most to be on chat because of the time difference/locations.
Probably best that everyone opens presents and hopefully is able to post pictures etc.

Hey, Mouse? The picture only shows as a little bitty thumbnail for me - do you have this posted somewhere else that I can see a larger version?

It is in my picture gallery - not sure why it didn't copy across properly - and I was too brain dead last night to look at it.  After having a nice 4 days off work I go back to absolute bedlam and I am now wondering if it is really worth it any more to take leave at all.

Redwork sent me a really great box of goodies.  dance It's been sitting on my living room table for weeks!

Inside the quilted bag(by the way the inside material of the bag is just as pretty as the outside)  is a pile of coffee.  But I will have to dole it out a bit at a time or my family will be putting me in a straight jacket.  I LOVE coffee,coffeecup  caffeine however does bad things to my mental health!  bad girl I am so looking forward to a cup of the good stuff at my desk every afternoon.  MMMMMMM


And inside the bubble wrap was (Gasp) a coffee cup! WooHoo! Even better, it is filled with all shades of embroidery yarn.  Plus the wrapped gifts of fabric markers and a flower applique wallhanging.   I feel like I hit the jackpot.  By the way, your last name goes well with the Christmas in July celebration now doesn't it.  

Looks like the links are posting but the pics aren't.  Hope someone can help me.

Oh wow, everyone recieved such beautiful gifts, so did we but I will have to take photos later today.

Marian, mum just loves her gifts and has the runners already in her new home, one on a buffet and one on her tall boy, she is thrilled, says thank you so very very much!

Polska, laura is in love with all her kitty panels and fabric, you were so very generous with her and she cant decide which one she loves best and decided to make a quilt from them all, thank you!

JennQT, I just love the table runner you made me although Im thinking I will hang it on the wall above the archway! Its beautiful and the patterns are awesome, cant wait to try them, Laura eyed off the Mckenna Ryan one and started in on me about how good it would look in her new bedroom, hint hint hint LOL - thank you so much, your parcel cheered my day unbelievably!

I promise to get pics dance

TXMusic Mom was my Secret Santa for Christmas in July! I received a beautiful watermelon table runner! Xmas fabric, beautiful napkins, and note cards/tags! I will get a picture taken and posted hopefully later this evening.

Love seeing and reading about the wonderful gifts!

Need to go locate batteries for the camera!
