Ornament Swap Roundup

Some of you may have already seen these in the flickr pool, but I wanted to share them here as well. I've now received all the ornaments from my swap group, plus a few extras:

Group 1 Ornaments
Above are the ornaments from my group: Robot from Jenny, Angel from Helen, Flower from Jessicah, Bauble from Nikki, Owlaments and Stocking from Dione and Pohutukawa made by me. Thanks ladies, they are lovely! Also special thanks to Jessicah for including some vegan chocolate (mmm Whittaker's dark, my favourite) and vintage buttons in her parcel. And to Dione for filling her knitted stocking with more vintage buttons!

Bonus ornaments
I also received some bonus ornaments to thank me for organising the swap - these gorgeous snowflakes from Marrianne and cute little present from Mel. Aww guys, thanks so much!

You are a talented bunch - my tree is full of handmade loveliness! Thanks also to everyone who participated. In the end I had 38 people sign up - way more than I expected. Since it went so well this time, I'm planning on running the swap again next year.

The flickr pool is looking great. If you haven't yet uploaded any photos of your ornaments, please do, so that we can all admire them. And if you participated but aren't on flickr, please feel free to email me a photo of your ornaments and I'll post it on the group so we can all share in the Christmas crafty goodness.

the flickr pool is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you Louise for uploading my photo.

People have been so clever.. the ornaments are really varied - I especially like the ones with the NZ theme - tiki, pohutakawa, kiwi fruit..
In saying that also love the snowflakes, angels, christmas trees and wee parcels.
The little sweaters on hangers had me in stiches, what a lovely idea.

Looking forward to next year's ... already have my thinking hat on. Does pay to be prepared........

Thanks Louise for organising our swap. I adored getting my mail gifts. I was a bit worried that the baby would come before I got mine finished but managed both. Thanks again. Rachelle
