Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Christmas is fast approaching and I'm not quite ready. I still have a few gifts to buy, a few gifts to finish making, presents to wrap and cards to write. I'm not panicking just yet but I might be soon. Work is crazy busy too in the lead up to Christmas as all the doctors try to get as many patients' treatments finished before the end of the year.

On a much more pleasant note, one of my favourite things about this time of year is taking part in the Ornament exchange on the Teresa Wentzler BB. This year I've exchanged 4 ornaments. Not all the ornaments I've sent out have arrived at their destinations yet but I've received the ornaments from those who are sending to me.

First up two ornaments of a freebie chart from Teresa Wentzler - Father Winter ornament. These are from Sara and Penny respectively.

Then a lovely ornament from Anu in Finland, which has designs on each side and I think the designs are by Margaret Sherry.

And finally a lovely Christmas tree from Susan

Time to get back to finishing the Christmas preparations.

All of your exchange gifts are lovely, and a special favourite is the Christmas tree from Susan. The design and the braiding are especially nice. Did you take some pix of the ones you sent out? x K
