Blog swap and frocks

Hi, Well i have tried to be busy but the sofa and chocolate keep sucking me in! 
Tinys frock has progressed 
I just need to turn it under (mostly pinned and just needs sewing), tie off all the ends and add a tie at the back so she can have a bow (will also help it look better cos shes a skinny minnie and this is a 'normal' child frock (i would say normal sized child but nothing about tiny is normal!)

I've just sent off my stocking swap to switzerland and i'll show you it when i know its arrived safely!
 In the meantime (oooooooooooo, sorry, got a spacehog song in my head then!) I can show you what i recieved in faith hope and charities -  christmas charity swap
We had to send a handmade something, a christmas decoration, something from a charity shop (etc) and up to 2 other items.
I sent - a crochet roll (sewn by me) containing crochet hooks sourced from the local charity shops. A pair of wrist warmers made by my mum (cash to her church fund), A pair of small plastic christmas tree dishes complete with chocolates (charity shop and scout fair), a cath kidson pink christmas tree candle (charity glamour day, total bargin!!!!!) and some homemade christmas decs.
I've been in such a tiz that i forgot to take any pics!
I have managed to take a couple of pics of what the lovely katie from over at dazed but enthused sent me.

 yum yum, parcels!
The small ones held tweezers, buttons and nail varnish,
 the larger ones held these...

Now, time for a nice warm cuppa. x
