SSCS ornament ideas........

With less then a month to go til we have SSCS parcels loaded in Santa's sleigh travelling all around the world I thought I would show you what gave me the idea to include an ornament that can be hung on the christmas tree...............
this is a great ornament I got from one of the ladies in the SSCS last year.......even included the year which is wonderful...........

some more.............bells on the bottom....


hearts..........



this one is a Hatched and Patched pattern slightly modified for Fairy Girl to make...........

these ones also included a bag to stash them in when not needed...........


can't wait to see what you have made for your partner...........I have been emailed one present..............very nice..............
over the last few days I have ordered another blog book ($$$$$ good and 20% off helped) and I was looking back thru posts etc and found pics from both the last swaps................such great memories............so many wonderful gifts............check it out if your stuck for ideas..............
++++++++++++
I think the ornament should be wrapped seperately so that it can be opened and placed on the tree as soon as the parcel arrived.................what do you think????
Take Care..............

  1. Good idea. Be nice to have the ornament on the tree to admire before Christmas. hugs, Jeanette

  2. Maybe a little tag on the ornament that says open before Christmas day - otherwise no peeking! I think we 'talked' last year about how nice it is for some people to have something to open on Christmas Day - so no opening before - right?

  5. WOW, you have been busy!
    Chooky, since you are so knowledgable about blogging things, can you describe how to set up a slide show on my blog? I did it once but then my slide show disappeared and I have been unable to get it back or to put on a new one. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but I can't decide what. I went to the Houston International Quilt Show a couple of weeks ago and want to share the photos with everyone.
