Got me checking Pinterest for ideas. So many! Sewed one this afternoon but don't like it. Trying to make it with paper piecing. Need a pink nose for Santa!

Such fun to try out patterns. I made twenty small stockings last week. My craft group made 200+ small Christmas favors for Meals on Wheels last Thursday. So I'm singing Fa La La La La

Two or even 3 or 4 groups would be terrific.  We made it a centralized swap so newbies and anyone else who needs to meet your minimum number of swaps have another chance before year's end.  Now is the time to join!  And get a unique homemade ornament for your tree.

I’d love to join, but sadly I’m not home till the end of the month so that makes it difficult

Angele3 - darn it - we will miss you.

Group 2 only needs 2 more swappers to complete the group!

I made these ornaments years ago. Like about 20. I think they held up really well and were really easy to make. I cut the shapes...

Love that snowman with the cute hat and patches. The star with Mary, Joseph, and baby is so cute. I'd love to have it to hang on the inside of my door. Precious, precious!

I don’t think Sheila meant Quilty related ornaments. The description is on the swap. I made Christmas ornaments . Evelyn yours are all perfect. . I think she meant, using Quilty techniques. Using Fabric, wool, hand stitching, embroidery, appliqué. Etc..

  Evelyn, these ARE cute....but your ornaments are already perfect.  I'm looking forward to maybe getting some of yours from the swap! I do think it would be fun in the future to make these ornaments and have a Sewing Tree...to leave up all year in our sewing rooms!
