I'm braiding jewelry wire into a necklace so I can wear it. So grateful to be just the right recipient.

We moved into a house in 1983 that had had only one previous owner, since 1939. While cleaning, I found a box of old glass ornaments and I picked out one that was like the ones my parents used on our Christmas tree. 34 years later I still put that ornament on the tree.

Checking my list to see who has not recieved their ornament.
This is who I show as not having theirs yet.....please let me know if you did get yours so I can fix my list.............
HAS NOT recieved yet:

Kany
Shemoos
Linda2B

Jill, I think you recieved yours but I didn't see a picture? Couldn't find the post, going off memory so let me know if I am wrong.

Most of these seem to involve overseas shipping and that could be a factor in the ornament not being there yet. If you have not mailed your ornament please let me know. It is not fair to the folks who don't have theirs yet.

Yes, she did get hers, she is just so busy at work that she hasn't had time to post a picture. She was my recipient so I tracked her down to make sure it got there! lmao
I can show y'all a picture, I hope she doesn't mind....






I had so much fun making this that I made a surprise one for Sewn. She always shares her quotes, funny stories, and life with us and so I thought it would be fun to send her one too.

Absolutely gorgeous..all of them.  Tracy, yours reminds me of the ones mom used to put on our tree as a kid.  Wish I still had one.  And the star Red has is just beautiful.   TxMary, those blocks are beautiful as well.  I love the quilting on them as well as the fabric.   Again, just gorgeous all of them.   This has been such a fun swap.

I didn't make the star, FB's friend made it. We had a few of those ornaments. Some had recessed features with the sparklies in them.

This has been a fun swap.

How long ago did you post it Marynel? The post from the states is running pretty slow at the moment with the xmas congestion

I really like the "handle" Kany added to your ornament block. What a cute idea! I love the colors and little extras!

I have another one that I made. Maybe I should get a jump on next year and send it, since the other has not arrived. Even very late, she should get one.
