Ornament Exchange at Madame Samms

This year I decided to be a bit more social, and join in the festivities at Madame Samms http://www.sewwequilt.com/  I am so glad that I did, and that I was fortunate enough to have sweet Pauline from
http://quiltnqueen.blogspot.com/ as my ornament swap partner! This gorgeous hand painted Santa was one she sent! The second photo is of the beautiful angel she sent as well.. I told her I did not actually "collect" anything, but that I added an angel to my tree each year in memory of my son Howard Lee.
 
The last two photos are of the ornament I sent to Pauline. This was a fun swap, and I will be happy to join in again next year! Happy Holidays everyone, and Merry Christmas
