I put my tree up last night! I haven't put the presents under it yet, but that will happen today! My partner was the very lovely Audania1.
Day 1! I received this lovely scone mix! Goodness, I love scones! I have only attempted to make that once. And it didn't go well.
But, hopefully this new mix will be more successful for me! I'll have to head over to World Market to get some clotted cream and enjoy it properly!
Day 2! YAY! Okay, first. Freaking adorable Santa bag. LOVE! And a tin of English tea. Goodness, it smells amazing! I'm about to make myself a cup! More coffee and I'll be in trouble. But, I can drink tea all the livelong day.
Day 3! Oooh - pause that. First up is an extra that I keep forgetting to post! It's really gorgeous. The snowflakes are so beautiful!
And the real Day 3! This really gorgeous ornament. I couldn't get a perfect picture on my tree, but it's so pretty. It's a decorated bottle brush tree on top of wee spool/stand that's wrapped in beads. My favorite part is the tree itself is decorated with charms and a wee crocheted garland that is so very lovely!
Day 4! Another spectacular ornament today! Check out this wee angel. She is so very lovely! I've tried to make these wee dolls with floss wrapped limbs and let me tell you. NOT easy. And not a particular skill of mine by any stretch of the imagination. I'm so lucky to have received this little one. She's perfect, perfect, perfect on my tree. She has a halo and really lovely beaded wings, too.
Day 5! I received a lovely set of stitch markers! Look at how beautiful they are!! And such perfect timing as I have a date with some amigurumi later today! Perfect!
Day 6! The loveliest of crochet snowflake earrings! I love them so much! So intricate!
Day 7! How are we already on Day 7? I need time to slow down!! But, today, I opened this adorable little sleigh pincushion. It's so very charming.
Day 8! Goodness, gracious, this is the greatest little tea wallet. SO stinkin' cute. I love it! It's going in my purse to go with me everywhere!
Day 9! I can't even tell you how absolutely beautiful this is! The reusable Starbucks cup is awesome. But, the felt cozy is just gorgeous. I love it! And I will get good use out of both of them! Love, love, love.
Day 10! Oh, goodness. THE cutest pillow today! Look at this Minnie Mouse Mistletoe adorableness! I just love her!
Day 11! A beautiful, insanely well-crafted mini-art quilt! It's currently living behind my desk. I don't take my decorations down until the epiphany, so it'll adorn my wall for a wee bit longer.
Day 12! So very sad to be done, but what a great send-off gift! Look at this gorgeous messenger bag! The fabrics are so very beautiful. It's just perfect!
This has been SUCH a great swap. I'm so thankful for everything I received!!
