I'm feeling sorry for those of you who haven't received an ornament yet... I really wished everybody had one with Christmas! But according to the list in the sidebar there are still 13 ornaments travelling the globe. Please let me (or your exchangepartner) know when you receive your ornament!
And let's all keep our fingers crossed that tomorrow the mailman delivers some of those "missing" ornaments!

But I received this wonderful ornie from Denise. It's from this years JCS Ornament Preview issue - and she picked my favorite and I love it! Thank you so much! It's hanging front and center on the tree; it was the first ornament we hung when we put the tree up last night!

I have to admit, I was beginning to think I had been forgotten in this exchange.... but today, a very pretty exchange arrived from Missouri! Thank you Cathy! What a sweet ornament, and such an adorable fob (also made my Cathy!). She also sent some interesting looking chocolate bars, but my DH has already taken those and hidden them away - LOL!
Thank you Cathy, and Happy Holidays!!

Isn't this just lovely? It's the Santa with Pear Tree design by Prairie Schooler, and Monique stitched it one-over-one. I love the lace border, too! And I also appreciate the DMC floss - it's a color variations one called "Radiant Ruby," which will be perfect for stitching more Christmas ornaments. Thanks, Monique!!!!

I heard from Tina today that she received the ornament that I sent to her. We actually had each other's name. So here is a picture of what I sent. I made my own bellpull hardware with things that I got at the local bead store.

There are still two persons I haven't heard anything from:
Janien Colans from Belgium and Tina Buckner from USA.
Is there anyone who knows these women and could contact them somehow??? They don't react to my emails...
I just wanted to make sure they've sent their ornaments!
Janien and Tina please contact me?!
Edit: Janien has responded to me, her ornament is on it's way!!!

Today I recieved my ornament in the mail and I love it!
Melisa not only made me a beautiful Koala-ornament (that is already enjoying our Dutch tree), she also sent 3 skeins of Madeira-threads and a beautiful pattern of Heart in Hand.
Thank you Melisa for the lovely gifts.

I received this lovely ornament from Sisu, thank you so much!! I've never seen an ornament like this, it's very special and it must have been difficult to make, the shape is so original. I love it, it's so cute and I will definitely hang it on our Christmas tree. It's perfect, thank you :)
Sisu also sent me this Christmas spider with a beautiful legend about spiders and Christ child, I've never heard it before. Did you make the spider yourself? Thank you for this too! I left a comment to your blog Sisu, please e-mail me so that I can thank you properly :) I didn't find your e-mail address anywhere.

Mr. Postman brought both joy and annoyance --
This beauty arrived from Michele in Kansas
The pretty glitter in the background is the gift bag Michele wrapped in.
Michele, this is sooooo beautiful. Thank you!!!!!!! Currently this beauty is decorating my office and making everyone jealous.
The unlucky bit -- I'm sorry to the person who is waiting for my package, but postal machines are mean. The pack came back to me. Part of the envelop looks like it got eaten. Everything inside is fie though. Oh well, back to the post office.
Christmas *is* coming, I promise!!!

It came all the way from the Netherlands! Thank you, Diana! It is so cute! I love the little wood ornaments, too. Diana also sent me two skeins of DMC floss and a little card! I'll try to take pictures later since I am at work now.
SO CUTE! *faints*

color-combination, but - like you wrote Leena - I love it! This ornament is
getting a good place in my tree (which I'm going to put in my living room
this weekend) Leena also added some nice gifts: a piece of quilt fabric, a
transparent blue ribbon, some Atalie-floss (my first one!) in "caramel" and
a bar of chocolate, which I just ate!
Leena, thank you so much! I love your gifts!!!

Hey there everyone, I have posted from Australia to The Netherlands. But I forgot to take a piccy.
It may seem small but I am in the middle of something much bigger for my partner and it will be posted as soon as it is finished. I was doing a course of a night time and had a lot of homework to finish before my next class. So my original idea is still in the making, it just wasn't ready to send out in time.

Just a quick note to say "thank you" to Robin for her lovely ornament and card which I picked up from the parcel office yesterday.
I will post a picture tomorrow, as I'm in the middle of an essay crisis at the moment - I need to write 1000 words by 4pm :o)

Today I received, not one, not two, but three goodies from Catherine Miller! What a nice surprise! She sent the Las Vegas tree by M designs and the Angel Heart ornament by Charland designs, along with a scented potpourri sachet! The back of the green ornie has an angel on it, but this side had the gold dove charm and showed the variegation in the pretty thread better. The Vegas tree has dozens of different colors, types, and sizes of beads on it. My kidlets both liked them, though it was my daughter who tried to claim them as her own. Thanks again Catherine, they are sweet!
