Wow, everyone's ornaments look so wonderful !!!!! Congratulations to all!!!!
This little goodie is ready to wing it's way to a secret locale in Europe.
He's based on a Trail Creek Farm pattern from one of the JCS ornament issues, but I was compelled to change all the colors, add metallic, switch the word from "Joyous" to "Merry," and add that JABC cardinal. What can i say, I can't help but fiddle with patterns.

I finished my ornament and posted it today. It's going to Australia. What it looks like will stay a surprise until it arrives at it's destination. The only thing I can tell, is that our cat Hidde liked it very much :-)

I received a wonderful Christmas ornament fron the States. The mailman brought it yesterday! It has a wonderful bird stitched in red varigated thread and I just love the gold branches the bird is sitting on.
My partner had also added scenery cards from here home state of Utah, wonderful places you have there!
Unfortunately there is no name on the cards so I don't know who I got this wonderful work of art from.
And here's the beauty for all of you to see :D

I've read a post that made me wonder...
Simone, is the "partner" we are sending to not the partner we are receiving from?
Just a question out of curiosity :-)
Nice day to you all :)

I have seen some very nice ornaments that have been sent to their new owner already.
I have sent mine on its way last Wednesday. It has to go across the Atlantic, so I hope it reaches its destination ok.

birdhouses. Elza knows what I like ;)
Elza, thank you so much for this sweet surprise!

Hi Everyone! My partner got her ornament, and so I'm posting the photos I took of it. FYI, I did the angel's wings in Rainbow Gallery Wisper, so they look "fuzzy" on the piece. I loved this exchange - happy holidays! Melanie

I have had my ornie finished since October but didn't want to send it too soon. So it should be off today in the mail. Slight adaptation of Cranberry in Pines by Rosewood Manor. I changed the bead because my LNS didn't have the correct color so I went for the popcorn and cranberry string with gold tinsel feel. Hope they like it...

I've just sent this cheery chap off on his travels - at least unlike the real Santa he won't have to go down any chimneys!
I've loved seeing the ornaments others have stitched so far - I would love to receive any of them, and I can't wait to see what turns up in my mail :o)

My ornament is done, boxed and will be mailed out tomorrow (Monday), flying far, far from my home in the USA. My digital camera is not working at the moment, but I choose a pattern from the Just CrossStitch 2007 Special Christmas Issue by The Sunflower Seed, "A Star, A Star". I enjoyed every minute that I spent making it and hope that it is appreicated by its new owner.
Happy Holidays to everyone.

I made this ornament this week and it'll be in the mail tomorrow. I know it's not cross stitch, but I decided to do different things this year for ornaments - experiment. The background fabrics are all silk scraps. I hope she likes the experiment - it's a completely unique design by me.

I'm not sure if we're supposed to keep the recipients a surprise until they get their ornaments, so I won't say who this is going to. The pattern is called "Snowed In" by Something in Common, and was offered in the December 2006 issue of The Gift of Stitching Magazine. I stitched it on 28-count Lugana, and it's mounted on green felt and a wooden square backing.
