Oh, Christmas Tree...

I love when Christmas continues even after the actual day has passed!
This oh-so-sweet mini quilt arrived the day after Christmas...


...from Wendy all the way from The Netherlands!

She also included some gorgeous fabric charms that I'm anxious to turn into something:)


And both were wrapped so nicely in adorable polka dot paper (which I will definitely be using in some project one of these days).

Wendy and I were swap partners for the December Swap Til You Drop. This is the mini I made for her...


The theme this month was "Quilts Go Green" and we were to *re-cycle* something in our creating. Wendy made her mini using vintage sheets and vintage buttons. I used fabric scraps from previous projects and vintage buttons (great minds!)

Sending extra goodies with our mini-quilts isn't required but I always like to send a little something...


...and couldn't resist a literal "go green" on the socks!

That is such a pretty surprise to get in the mail. I love it. And the colors of the fabrics she sent along and wonderful. I liked what you sent her too. My granny used to say let's make pinwheels. Mine never looked right. Yours are perfect. Love that owl...

It's always so fun to see the results of a swap. I haven't participated in a swap for a few months. I'm excited for another DQS! How 'bout you?
