The little house is adorable, and I love the colors in the trivet.

Look at what fatewineroses made for me!!!

And a picture to show the dimensionality.  It's not a little pillow-- the ornament is actually the shape of an Etch-a-Sketch.

I have an Etch-a-Sketch just this size sitting on my bookshelf that holds all of my treasures, so I could check the perfection.  fatewineroses couldn't have done better with it.

And here's my lovely potholder.

I took the picture on my kitchen counter so you can see how beautifully it goes.

Thank you so much, fatewineroses!  I'm tickled beyond belief.

Cool!  I made the Best of 2009 twice!   Check 'em out!

Oh, Wow!!!  I just love the etch-a-sketch ornament. What a fabulous job you did on that one.

I love the Etch a Sketch too!

Here's what Saor sent me.  Sorry it's taken a few days to post, I couldn't find my memory card reader.

A gorgeous wire-wrapped star with crystal beads.  I love it!  The photo does it no justice at all.

And a felt bird with ribbons for a tail, which I also love and which my cat Pokey is obsessed with because she likes ribbons (I've put it well out of her reach though!)

Not pictured is the Christmassy-smelling Yankee candle she sent and a sachet of muscle balm for my bad ankle.

Thanks Saor, and Riario for organising, I've enjoyed this swap hugely  Cheesy

I have also received from fatewineroses! 

First is the ornament.  It's so cute!  I think I'm going to embroider 2008 on the ribbon and have it as our 2008 ornament.  It has such tiny little stitches!  You can't really see the watering can in the picture, but it's done in kind of a grey iridescent thread which I know is a pain to work with.

Next is also a trivet.  It looks very nice in the kitchen! 

Thank you!!

I received the cutest ornaments from wootwoot yesterday but I haven't been able to take a photo yet. I'll try to get one up tomorrow.

I love the Etch-a-Sketch! And I loved this swap. I can't wait to put up my tree so I can hang up all of my great ornaments.  Smiley

I'm so glad everyone liked their ornaments and trivets.  Last year I made my mom about four of those for when we have big dinners at her house.  She throws them down under the pots and casseroles to keep her lovely counter safe.  The ones I made for my wonderful partners are made from cotton, so they are safe to use and easy to clean.

It was awful nice of you to post pictures of your kitchen elvissatx. It made picking the colors for your trivet easy.  Grin 

Overall it was a great experience. I had a great time figuring out what to make for everyone.  Once I decided I had two ornaments that were a definite challenge.  I had never done anything like either of them and even thinking of designing them was daunting...but in the end I was so VERY happy with how they turned out that it offset any of anxiety I had in the beginning.

Saor - The challenging part is in the design, not the sewing.  Most of it was done with simple running stitch or whip stitch.  And felt is wonderfully forgiving AND cheap.  You can easily mess up and try again!  Wink  If *I* could do it, pretty much anyone could.

I have received from my partner adubyah and will post pictures tomorrow.

Thanks so much to all of my partners for a wonderful swap and to riario for organizing!

Beautiful!  What is the red ornament made of?  That's a really nice looking box, too.

Thanks! The ornament and the box are both actually a heavy duty cardboard. I just painted the red one with acrylic paint. I think I got it at Hobby Lobby. The box I got at Walmart.

I received from christinacoghill on Friday.  I wasn't able to post pictures then, but here they are.

She sent me a wonderful little fairy house and a fun foam change purse.

Another side of the fairy house.

Thanks Christina.  They're great.  I can't wait to put my new fairy house on my tree.  I just hope my cats don't eat it.
