We both opened our main swap on Christmas Eve and I sent to Wendy the following.....
Sophie and I made several decorations similar to this one last year and really enjoyed it, so I thought I would make one for Wendy. Mind you, my fingers were glad when I had finished using all of those pins in!
The main part of the swap from me was......
.... this wall hanging made of appliqued shapes and a layer of organza on top. I went to a workshop a while back and it was called Shadow applique.
I also used this style of tree last year for the Christmas Block Quilting Bee. It is a nice looking tree block and I think it shall reduce it to fit on the tree skirt that I would like to make.
I have already posted about the lovely tree decoration that Wendy made.
It has been hanging on our tree all over the holidays.
Taking pictures on these dull winter days is not good but I hope that the pictures shows you the lovely colours in the fabric that Wendy used for this wall hanging. Funny how we had the same idea.
Unusual colours for Christmas but I really like them.
This is the lovely fabric on the back of the wall hanging.
I enjoyed sending off a swap parcel at Christmas....anyone remember the Christmas Decoration swap in 2008 or the stocking swap in 2009 that I ran? Might try another next Christmas if there is any interest.
This also formed one of my November OPAM finishes as well.
I do hope that OPAM runs next year too as I have sat down today and actually written a list of what I would like to make in 2012. How organised id that!!??
