Ornament Exchanges

I participated in two Christmas Ornament exchanges this year.

This one went to Marina in Canada.  I received the sweetest 'thank you' email from her telling me she has it hanging in her kitchen for all to see.

This one went to Christina in FL.  It turned out a bit bigger than I anticipated, so I made it into a little pillow instead.

I received two beautifully beaded ornaments from Marcy in WI.  I really am impressed with those who do beaded projects as it's not my forte.

Thank you, Marcy!

Kim E. in IA also sent me a beaded ornament.  I stocking with a little snowman embellished with a star.

Thank you, Kim!

Until next time...

Your snowman ornament and pillow are wonderful! Beautiful finishes. I love the pillow especially. The colors in the fabric coordinate perfectly with the stitching.

Love your ornaments. The way you finish them is so creative. I'm so jealous. And you really did well on the receiving end too.

You received some lovely ornaments! I love the beaded one from Marcy (I was the lucky recipient of one of them too!) I would love to learn to do that. Your finishing on the snowman ornament is so cute!

Great job on those ornaments! I saw something like those snowflakes at Joann's so I may have to steal your idea!

The beaded work you received is beautiful!
