Down To Earth Annual Christmas Swap

The Annual Down To Earth Christmas Decoration Swap has just wound up. I love this swap. One of my faves.
It's always nice to receive parcels of new goodies but I particularly love it come each November when we put up the Christmas tree on Pageant weekend and I get to decorate with all my handmade items I've received over the years.

This year I was teamed with Tracy.

My parcel came wrapped in a huge tea towel and tied with Christmassy ribbon

Tracy made me some a Christmas bunting and a stocking made form old jeans, so cool.
these was also a lovely hand made card and some gingerbread scented bodywash.

A close up of the stocking.
How clever to include the waist band and pocket in the design!

I had a few things in mind to send Tracy and in the end I decided on a table topper that featured Christmas trees.

I have folded the topper in half here to fit in the photo. I also made a couple of star shaped dishcloths, a handmade card and seeing as Tracy lives interstate I thought I'd send her a little something from South Australia, our famous Fruchocs.

Have you taken part in any Christmas swaps this year?

Take Care
