"12 Days of Christmas Gifts" Swap - Days 1 - 6

The online group I've a member of does an annual "12 Days of Christmas Gifts" Swap. We are placed in groups of 12 and assigned one day. We then make 12 gifts - one for each participant - and send them out. 12 days before Christmas we start opening our gifts - one per day. This is one of my favorite activities of the group and it's always amazing to see the creativity and thought that goes into these gifts.

I was the first day of my group and created a little art quilt hanging. I used a base of canvas cloth and layered music paper, ticking, laces, buttons, ruffled ribbon and a favorite vintage Christmas image. I dyed the seam binding ribbon hanger with Distress ink.

I love how they look all lined up before mailing!

And this is what I've received so far:

Day 2
from Julie
tiny canvas ornament

Day 3
from Alice
canvas star ornament

Day 4
from Joan
vintage Bingo card banner

Day 5
from Shellie
Cd case calendar

Day 6
from Gwynn

Thanks to all these gals for the lovely gifts. Can't wait to open the next 6!
