Hope your Christmas was merry and Christmas Swaps...

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. I am sorry I have been MIA the last week or so.I just needed some time to get a few gifts ready and a little down time.Christmas day was quite at our house this year.Adam and I went to our grandson's house for lunch and to give him his gifts.Then we came home and kicked back for the rest of the day. My sisters and their hubbies and kids and my Dad are coming this next week to do our Christmas together.It will be wild then.

Here you can see Ryan in his new night shirt and pillow that I made him.He loves these and did not want to take the shirt off.So cute....

This year I was involved in 3 Christmas swaps on-line.One was a rug hooking swap,one was a ornament swap and one was a secret Santa swap with a rug hooking on-line rug hooking group I am part of called Wool Snippets.

Pictured here is the beautiful ornament that I got from ?????Oh no!!!!I can't find the box this came in so I can tell you who I got it from.I love it and wanted to say a BIG thank you...You know who you are ...please let me know.

This hooked Santa face is so cute and he came all the way from Canada.Della thank you so much.He is hanging from the fireplace and looks great.

For the last 4 year I have been part of the secret Santa swap on "Wool Snippets" and this year I almost missed it.I am not getting my daily post so I was late getting my name in.I don't even know where to start telling you about this gift.It came from Rita from Ohio.It was a rug hookers dream with 5 kinds of wool,a sweet little hooked reindeer pin,great hooked tree,washcloths and scubbies,coffee and cover notebook.And that was just to name a few of the things.Thank you so much Rita, I love everything.

I love getting and giving gifts to people I do not know.Making new friends on-line.

Live Deeper,Vicki

It sounds as though you had a peaceful Christmas...the way it should be. I was also involved in the Snippets Secret Santa (for the first time). I had such fun both creating the package for someone and also opening up the one I received. I know I will do that again. I hope that you and those you love have a very Happy New Year!

Vickie, I did the Snippets swap for the first time this year also. And like Lauri I had just as much fun putting together the one to give as much as receiving one! I'll definately do it again next year. Everyone was so generous in their giving it was incredible. Although I do think we went over the $20 limit!! It was really one of my favorite gifts-being so hooking related.

Hi Vicki,
Glad you a) received the ornament and b) liked it. I made a bunch more for gifts and didn't get to keep one for myself (but I have leftover supplies for next year)
