Aside from stitching for the Christmas Ornament Challenge 2011 I have participated in three ornament exchanges this year.
Last week (I think) this arrived all the way from Texas ~ Joyce from The Friendly Stitcher Group was my partner and stitched this lovely JBW design. I can't show you what I sent just yet as I have not heard from Joyce as to whether it has been received.
Today was reveal day for the Needlecraft Haven ornament exchange ~ Ursh sent me this gorgeous snowman, such a lot of work and I love the ruched ribbon trim. I just love snowmen so it's perfect.
I was to stitch for Julie and this is the ornament I sent ~ it's from the November issue of The Gift of Stitching, the fabric shown is what was used as the backing.
Finally, from my partner Sandra on TGOSM exchange I received this lovely piece ~ the design is from The Drawn Thread Company. Again, I am waiting to hear from Sandra that she has received my package before I show it here.
Thanks so much to all my partners for the lovely ornaments I have received ~ they will be displayed in our home for many years to come. I recently bought a little tree from a local garden centre which I hope will work for hanging all the ornaments I have received from exchanges over the years ~ I guess as it's now December I should unpack it and see how it works.
