    I'm thinking of trying the cute no-sew Christmas ball ornaments this year. Maybe I'll make one to swap too!

    We have always only used a small table topper Christmas tree, but this year my in-laws have decided to give us their 6.5' tree. All there children have moved out and they will be spending Christmas here this year. So, I need ornaments

    I would like to join in this Christmas Ornament swap again this year please. It will suit me just fine with the early mailing date as I am to have major spine surgery sometime after the 18th October and I will be out of action after the surgery. I see the specialist on the 18th October to confirm the surgery date. I will PM you with my details.

    Hello Everyone~
    So, I was away on vacation up in the Mountains of Maine without internet or phone service and when I have returned I find that all you lovely ladies have signed up for the Ornament Swap for 2018. So welcome.

    I have a few things I need to get caught up on, but I am hoping to have a list of everyone who has signed up so far together by the end of the week.

    I just want to thank each and every one of you for participating again this year. This is always such a fun swap with such creative people.

    go for it quilter momma. Its a great swap to be in. I made my "one" during the year but I've found some "rainy day activities" on the internet that I'm going to make and put in as extras.

    Hi Everyone....I am still alive and pulling together the list. I had everything set up in excel and then my computer crashed and I lost everything. I now have a new computer and will be re-creating that list so I can get it out this weekend.

    Only a few more days to sign up so tell all your friends. We have a lot of fun with this swap and as I have done in past years we will be having some fun contests as we pass the time before opening day with some great prizes.

    Again, thank you to all who have already signed up and now that my computer issues are cured I will be more active.

    Now that the pincushion swap is completed, I have several ornament ideas to work on for the ornament swap and Secret Santa.

    I think I want to do this again. I participated a few years ago and received such a lovely ornament. I have ideas I want to try and this might be the perfect "push" to try one or two!

    I absolutely love your felt ornaments, BettyJ! I look forward to seeing them shared in each ornament swap. Maybe I will try my hand at some this year. You have inspired me again!

    I love the pictures so far. This is going to be so much fun!!! I am still trying to decide on a couple of ideas. Too many ideas to choose from.

    I was looking at the ornaments at craftsy.com and they have some cute one there if anyone is still on the fence.

    Betty, you do such professional work. I love it all!
