Our tradition is to swap ornaments... made or bought. For the last 2 years we've drawn names for Secret Santa, but this year we decided to go with a Dirty Santa swap (you know - the one where you get to steal from your friends!)
I wanted to go with something that wasn't necessarily Christmas, and this little house was perfect! It was fun picking through scraps to make this one... so much fun that I'm working on four more for gifts.
And I received the best ornament! This star was made by a resident of Brookwood Community.
(You might remember the coffee cup I bought from Brookwood for ACuppaKim's mug swap earlier this year.)
We also had a small Fat Quarter swap and I came home with a couple of Patty Sloniger's Spoonflower designs. I think these will become zipper pouches!
