Footwear and Crochet!

I have really enjoyed checking the letter box over the last few weeks and finding fun little packages from participants in the Kiwi Christmas Ornament Swap 2011.

It would seem that there were two themes running through our groups- Crochet and Footwear.

The footwear included my elf clogs, a jandal and some stocking and hearts bunting which arrived wrapped around its very own vintage Christmas tree.
The crochet included a star, a bauble, a Christmas tree and an angel.
I love the variety of ornaments that is produced in a swap like this but at the same time it makes me smile that these themes emerged.

Thank you Dione for organising a great swap and thank you Paula, Gabrielle, Clare, Abigail and Genevieve for making such beautiful ornaments, they will take pride of place on our tree for years to come.

Mr tartankiwi looked at the Christmas tree the other day and asked if there was anything that wasn't handmade on there.... ummmmm... not much! Just the way I like it!

  2. I aspire to handmade ornaments hanging on my tree. This year was a bit of a bust. Love the crochet tree and the star.
