Christmas Exchanging

Aren't these so cute.  Margaret in New Zealand was my partner for the exchange.  These are red crochet, which has been stiffened so that they stand up.  So cute.  She sent along a bag of Christmas candies (which are difficult to see in the right hand corner of this picture)  And then she also sent me

[As you can see, I'm having great difficulty with photos and Google tonight.]  So you will have to turn the screen a bit sideways to see N O E L on my little tree.  But my photographic skills are not a reflection of Margaret's wonderful work.  Thanks, Margaret, I love them.

X-mas Exchange

Look what Marne sent me for the X-mas exchange. And yes, she allowed me to open the present before X-mas so I can use this lovely tablerunner on my table, and that's where it is now. And look how special it is. Handquilting by Marne ; ).

Thanks Marne I love your X-mas present.
