I'm always amazed at the creativity shown in this swap. Those Scandinavian cross stitch hearts are charming. I may have to pull out my red floss and stitch a small sampler this winter.

Love the tiny packed full package my swap partner sent to me. How fun to open. The elf on a shelf slippers are so cute! I also got handmade candy corn soap, a I love NY ornament (made with sparkly beads), and a little sheer gift bag with lip gloss, a heishe bracelet, a soft velvet hair tie and a lucky sticker.

Here's my ornament from WMUTeach: Three delicate hand crochet snowflakes! And a lovely square of winter fabric! Thank you, they are beautiful!! I now have to rummage out in the garage for the hooks to hang these on my tree!

My sender, RoseIrish48, really spoiled me. 6 stockings and a Noel Banner as well as candy canes.

Default Cardinals in NC

My gift from Linda (eyes) means so much. Not only is the cardinal the state bird of NC but folks believe that when you see a cardinal it represents a visit from a loved one in heaven. I have always equated the cardinal with my mom who passed away when I was only seventeen. Linda, this was a gift meant especially for me. Thank you so much. I love the cardinal knitted into the dishcloth as well. I found a pattern for one with a dachshund that you have inspired me to try.

Nelda, I just opened my little package. I could not imagine what would be in that small envelope that was so thin. But now I know. A beautiful embroidered ornament with a filled stocking on one side and woven heart on the other. Precious, oh so precious and delicate. It will be added to my tree on Saturday when the grands come to help me decorate. Thank you so much.

MizMelly, there are very fine clear thread hangers on the snowflakes. You may just have to search for them. Such fun to make these again. It has been years.

Just opened my festive package from Nonnie4. Thanks so much, Connie! Love the ornaments and extra goodies -- and the star arrived in perfect condition! I'll try to post photos tomorrow so everyone can see the cute tree made of yoyos and the lovely fabric star (not sure if you'd say it's made of prairie points or...) Anyway, I'll definitely get pictures up asap so everyone can enjoy this wonderful package of gifts. I think I'll hang the ornaments in my sewing room as inspiration. Thanks again, Connie, and Merry Christmas!
