Spring Heartfelt Swap

Wow, this was fun. Talk about stress though!! There were nine of us who committed to creating an ornament for each person in the group. It was truly a diversely talented group. There were Stacy and Marlis from Lubbock; Hope and Cherie from Bloomington, Indiana; Lonnie and Michelle from Oregon; Julie from Roswell, New Mexico; Amanda from Lincoln, Nebraska; and Natalie from Lodi, California. We only had one rule, there had to be felt on the project somewhere. So I sweated and fretted and then I just "did it". Because my blog was so new, I was able to post my project when I finished it. Click here and you can see that submission.

I was excited with each and every ornament that was to grace my spring tree. Each one was "sew" charming and "sew" perfect. I had branches pulled from the yard for a bouquet, but they just didn't work. So I took my 40% off coupon to the big craft store that doesn't open on Sunday and purchased a new, white feather tree. I might still be able to find one of vintage quality at a reasonable price, but this one is okay. And the granddaughters love it and think it's "great" (to quote granddaughter #1 who is just 4).

We live in this great house built in the 60's. It has a hallway, a real hallway that runs along the front of the house that is nothing but windows and built in cabinets. Love it, love it, love it. The cabinets are up to window height so there is a long expanse just waiting for decorating. It just makes me smile each time I walk by. Thank you gals, your ornaments are wonderful!

You still have time to create one of your very own - So Be Creative!
