    This is not a partnered swap, Nelco. I think something is a bit off with your swap arrangements. Ask have 4boys. THis is a secret ornament swap.

    Wow! guess my brain is still scrambled from my move last month. Lived in old apt for 16 years and had to much junk to get rid of. . I re checked my PMs and got it all straightened out.
    thank you RedGarnet for letting me know.

    I completely understand, nelco. I have been going though a lot lately myself. It is tough to get older and have things change on you.
    You are so welcome. I just didn't want someone to get missed with the swap. That would be a terrible shame.

    The reveal is usually the first week of December, more time to enjoy the new ornament & tell my friends during my Christmas party how creative y'all are!!! We have to mail by Nov 20th so that gives plenty of time for the mail.
    hugs,

    Hoping you could have the reveal date set a little earlier as we leave to go to Germany for a White Christmas on the 16th December, which is your 15th. We will actually leave home about the 14th as we have to fly from Brisbane and we are a little way from there. Also we will catch up with our daughter and family in Brisbane before we leave. That way I can post photos before I leave, as I know the last minute rushes will be more than likely happening.

    I am making some head way with my ornaments for the swap.I will be away over the weekend but hopefully I will have them ready for posting come Monday the 11th.

    I am currently getting projects ready for a Christmas Quilting retreat that starts next Thursday as well. I just never seem to have enough time to do all that I would like to do.

    How about the 11th then? That way there is plenty of time for the ones overseas to receive theirs.

    December 11th sounds like a perfect day. Since we are all in different time zones, any time on the 11th. Open and post pictures. Remember to thank you ornament exchange partner.

    I will work on my ornament this weekend. I cannot decide on felt or polymer clay. Will have to see. Glad it is a 3-day weekend.

    Great! December 11th for the party sounds wonderful to me too.

    Oh sorry Boop, I forgot to say how wonderful your ornaments are. So creative and cute!

    Betty J you always make such beautiful ornaments. I'm just starting mine today. I have done a practice one, now to do another. It is so HOT today, 40C and proper summer is not here yet. Having a sewing room in the cellar is great tho

    Thank you, Marion, Yes it is a scorcher over here also. The hot dry wind has really kicked into action, I feel that the trees are starting to defoliate. Apparently we have over 60 fires over here in NSW, extending from the Mid north coast to Queensland. We have had thick smoke haze here for days. Thankfully we are not in a bush fire area here but there is long dry grass on the neighboring property across the highway from us, wouldn't like to put a match in that! We have had no rain to speak of since June this year. We are still existing on rain water and we do have a bore as back up, so we are better off than most, but we are having to conserve the rain water. I hope you are faring okay over there in the west. Fortunately we do have air con which we have put on this week also.

    I have posted my swap this afternoon, so they are on their way to my partner. The Post Office said 8 to 10 days to delivery, so we will see how that goes.

    Betty, you make the most beautiful ornaments. I have not been lucky enough to receive any yet.

    the swap only specifies one although several people choose to make two or more. I personally made two and a gift bag to put them in.
