QB5 Christmas!

Remember the shakers from last post that I made for the QB5 December swap?
Well.... this is what I got in return.... such a talented group of women sent me the following:

First is Patty's soft felt ornament.... love the little bird and the way she applied the "feathers"!
 And
she used her hand dyed ribbons...
 has sweet crochet and netting.
  And she attached one of her wire bird's nests! A treasure for sure...

Then we have Carole's
darling Santa snowman...
she sold them at fairs this month in New Zealand...
not sure if she still has any in her Etsy shop...

His hat can be lifted up and I could see me hiding something in there!

Here is Nathalie's precious pin cushion in a china doll appendage!

I love appendages.....
 she has some in her Etsy shop....
 or did... you'll have to check...
these are adorable and I want to figure out a way to wear it.

...and Margaret
....  she sent a packet of goodies (as they all did)....
and this adorable matchbox...
she has some of the best images and just being in Switzerland makes it all so much more special
 ... all that snow and Heidi...
well, you know!



My packages arrive here...... thought you'd like to see my lights...

Merry Christmas!

(come back tomorrow to see the Christmas fascinators I made for a party last night!)
