This year I am participating in the Trim the Tree Handmade Ornament Swap, organized by Locodowo on Flickr. I made three ornaments for secret partners (meaning they don't know I am making for them until they receive their package) and I will receive three ornaments from three other secret swappers.
I made three little houses. Each in the color scheme my partners indicated. I really enjoyed playing with my Christmas fabric, other scraps, folkloristic ribbon, and some shiny buttons.
They each have a Christmas tree in the backyard. With a little embroidery as well.
They were so much fun to make! With my new machine! She behaved nicely and I learned some more.
Today I sent the ornaments to their homes. Now I can't wait to see what ornaments I receive, exciting!
