So much for catching up! I had some last minute Christmas shopping & decorating to take care of, but I still took time to photograph & open each gift every morning. It's the posting that takes the time, which has been in short supply lately.
So, today is Day 13, the last day of this exchange and I shall be so sad to not have a giftie to open tomorrow morning - VBG! Seriously, I have been very fortunate to have been invited by Elizabeth to take part and I have already accepted for next year. At least for 2012 I will have a whole year to plan, gather & play!
Day 11: Linda Morgan
Linda is the Steampunk Queen and her ornament ROCKS! It was lovingly wrapped in fabric that she had dyed herself and can be reused in my quiltie projects - Woohoo!
She created the face from Polymer Clay. The legs are vintage bisque. The stamped brass wings look vintage too. The dollie's body is constructed from wooden play blocks. She finished it off with beads, wire, chain and a vintage pin.
Day 12: Terry Pitzel
Day 13: Pat Winter
Pat made to most beautiful Lavender sachet pin! Delicate lace, beautiful image of a woman's Victorian ice skates. The back is a burnout velvet. The image is embellished with the tiniest ribbon-work roses, vintage velvet flower, beads and a snowflake charm. I can't wait to wear this!
Thank you to all the amazing & talented women artists I have had the pleasure of exchanging prezzies with these last 13 days. I look forward to next year! :0)
