Festive Swap

When I first read Miriam’s post suggesting a festive decoration swap my initial thoughts were about what I would make.  Having signed up I had some fun looking through crochet patterns and finally made up a trio of stockings to send to Jill.  I really enjoyed the process and was happy to be able to send a small festive cheer to a blogger whose photography I’ve admired for ages. I was delighted when I heard from her that she had received the parcel and to see her post, which you can see here

Then I received an envelope though my letter box and remembered, this is a swap so I get a lovely decoration from a fellow blogger too. Fiona had made me a beautiful, elegant 3D snowflake decoration with matching card




I’ll be hanging them in a prominent place as I decorate next week. 

big thank you to Miriam for arranging the swap.  I’m enjoying seeing each decoration as it appears on blog posts.

Miriam said...

Oooh! how gorgeous is this? What a lovely colour, and matching card. Oh some people are just too talented!
Thanks so much for joining in with the swap and for linking up.

Oh, these are lovely! Such soft, beautiful colours. This swap has been so much fun. I hope we do it again next year.

Thank you again for the stockings, and for the link and kind words about my blog!

So lovely. That card is pretty enough to be a decoration itself.

Beautifully delicate, aren't they? And they have a worthy new owner to appreciate them!

Your stockings are very cute, and I love the chilly blue of the snowflake you received. I just dropped mine in the mail to Alexa yesterday. And still waiting on my receipt.

Oh how beautiful they both are. I'd be keeping that card to display in future years too.
