These are awesome! You did a wonderful job. The designs are so funny. I may need to make one of the cat in the tree for myself. We are struggling with the cat in the tree issue this year. I think our kitty thinks the center of the tree is a scratching post.

Here are some of the things I made my swap partner for the Mini 12 Days of Christmas Swap.

a pair of sleds, pattern by Lizzie Kate

Penguin Ornament. The penguin pattern came from a Christmas Ornament Magazine. The background is made of hand-dyed blue floss, just filled with one color. I used metallic thread for the year. I stitch on one of those wooden discs.

When I read my partner was a How I Met Your Mother fan, I decided to design a pattern that I've had in my head for awhile, the blue french horn with a quote from the tv show. Since I didn't want to make such a simple design a picture, I sewed it onto a quilted pouch.

I was also going to make a Marie Curie (designed by Cloudsfactory) with the Sheldon quote "She had a penis made of Science," from Big Bang Theory but I thought I may be getting too phallic with my quotes.

Received!!! Each present has a crocheted star ornament attached. MareMare has done such a beautiful job!

Day 1: Candy (almond kisses and candy canes) with quilt bowl

Day 2: Soaps and wash cloths (Lemon- Eucalyptus and peppermint) It made the all box of goodies smell yummy!

Day 3: Garland and ornament (The garland is coming to school tomorrow and going around my desk)

Day 4: Handmade lotion (Great for cold winters!!)

Day 5: Alice in Wonderland Pouch with two pairs of Christmas socks inside. I had to take a picture that also showed the socks I was currently wearing. I just love crazy socks! This particular package is a good example of how alike we are. I also sent socks and some Alice goodies.

Day 6: Gifts for the boys (And great timing too. Yesterday was our first snow day in 3 years. Here in Alaska we don't really have those; however, because it has been so warm, the snow has been melting and refreezing. Normally school is cancelled at 50 below. Winter has been in the 30s, so snow is icing the roads. Alaska is funny) Anyway, the boys loved their goodies. It was so nice of you to stitch their names.

Day 7: Hubby's Day!!! Luke Skywalker is a great addition to our tree! We love him. And the peppermint sticks are yummy in our hot cocoa. Funny, Bailey and I played Star Wars Risk yesterday. It's been a very Star Wars themed break :-)

Day 8: A burner and homemade scents, peppermint and cotton candy owls. I love them both but I am particularly happy that she sent me cotton candy, my all time favorite. Smells just like my Autism awareness build a bear bear. Sorry about the picture. I uploaded it but it tilted afterward. Also, great job wrapping up the glass burner. Most things I get break in shipping.

Day 9: A Beautiful Quilted table runner, with little adorable dressed doggy!

Here are some close-ups.

Check out the back. She is so talented!

Day 10: Crafty goodies! Aida, hooplas, Alice needle-reminders, cat scissors, and a brand-new set of embroidery patterns. The handmade trivets I think were supposed to go with the burner from Day 8.

Day 11: Alice in Wonderland Cross Stitch. I took a better picture but I didn't realize the close-up was so blurry. I'll take another one, but I wanted to share how good it looks on my hoopla wall.

Close up:

Day 12: Seriously! This is the most beautiful thing I own now! A FULL SIZE PROFESSIONAL QUILT. I am completely excited. The fabric is pieced and themed around Alice in Wonderland. You can see sillhouettes of Alice, the caterpillar, the white rabbit, and lots of flowers. There are clock pieces. After the piecing, she put waves across the completed quilt. It is absolutely amazing, and it is reversible. The inside is just as beautiful. Even the edging has beautiful letter. This is just such an amazing piece all together.

I've been sick for about a week. Tried to power through then, my body said no, and took voice, which is incredibly complicated for a teacher. My students did enjoy seeing me mime my lesson on Thursday. I slept from Friday through Sunday, so now I'm back to work again.

I'll probably be sending out late as well because I got so behind, but not too late. I hope to send things from the North Pole by the end of this month with my families Christmas gifts.

Ive received from Helena and I could NOT be happier. I absolutely adore the Santa and the Santa ornament...Im going to hang it on my teeny Christmas tree as soon as I can convince the husband to let me put it up. I also received some gorgeous Alaska postcards. Thats a place on my bucket list. It looks so pretty.

Thanks again Helena. The Santa is beautifully stitched and its so much more that I could have even hoped for. I love him. ❤️

Well, I made you wait long enough. The tiny ornament can be wore on a necklace too. I'm so glad you liked everything. I enjoyed stitching him. I may make another for myself. I live the Prairie Schooler yearly Santa's.

Sorry for the delay! I received from Kittykill about a week ago. Been quite the slacker this month. Crazy busy with work and then, there was a delay in getting my supplies. Poor, itsmereba is still waiting on me but I promise I am stitching away. I bought an adhesive backing for needlepoint so once I get finished stitching it will be shipped away in a priority mail package.

Check out what Pam sent me!!!!! Isn't it absolutely amazing. She is absolutely amazing!
