CWQG Ornament Exchange

Wednesday night was the Colorado West Quilt Guild's Christmas party.  We had a potluck dinner and an ornament exchange.  The ornaments were all handmade and I was so impressed with the variety!  I snapped pictures of a few that I could get my hands on :)

The cute little snowman ornament pictured below is made from a small battery operated tea light!  How clever is that!  That is the one I received, but I ended up trading with Betty for the little cowgirl ornament pictured right so I could give it to my daughter, who likes all things "country" :)

Here is gift #5 on my Countdown to Christmas!  It is a nice notepad and in the upper right hand corner it says, "A friend is worth a thousand stitches."  So true!

The first thing I am going to write on this notepad is a list of all the projects I want to work on in 2017.  Then perhaps I'll break it down by month.

Have a great day!  I was out early this morning walking (for exercise) at the mall and the stores were all opening up at 8:00 and people were out shopping already!


  1. These ornaments are the cutest! What a fun gift exchange when you have crafty and creative friends! I love the snowmen cowboy ornament! :-)

  2. Karen do you know who made that fat quarter windmill ornament? I want one! Gini
