My dear family left yesterday,after 4 wonderfull dayes,-so I felt a bit lonely---but then
today my swap packet arrived ,and I felt embrased of the friendship in blogland.
 Jillayne  of , A Fine Seam, started and did all the hard work,to make this swap great.
Look what the sweet lady added, and made for all of us to ,to hold the 5 swap squares.
A beautifull pouch,with a handmade rosette, topped with a great bling,bling button.
She also ,so dearly made a beautifull heart, as gift.
Thankyou so much dear friend.

I recieved 5 beautifully made squares,-this first one comes from Teresa  the HeART of Words-
it is so beautifull, and I love the colors of water and sky -mixed with the red berryes and white snow.Every image wonderfully cut out, and placed onto a hymn --I love the tail, has been allowed to go outside the background, and the way the piece becomes a beautifull whole.

This next little winter wonder, has been made of my dear friend Diane from Diane Knott`s Musings.
She is a fantastic and so sweet artist, and makes the most beautifull art pieces -just look
at this little winter guy,freezing in the snow, with all the handsewn detaiels, love him !.

This wonderfully handpainted winter lady is made of  Tina One Wild Swan,
it is so much more beautifull in real, I am so in love with this sweet little face,and how she kind of belongs ,into the wonderfull snow land surrounding her.she is beautifully plased onto a silver card.(Reminds me of my childhood fairy tales)

The two last pieces are real christmas squares. Here a so sweet and cosy snowmann from  Nook Cranny Gifts    ,so wonderfully made with old  laces and fabricks, small cones,and pearls, look at the sweet background, and how he salutes the coming christmas.

This last one ,fantastic painted from Marcia  The Painted Gift-
is two darling snowmen amongst the beautifull green branches covered in snow, and decorated with christmas bowls. the snow is made so it looks almost real, and stands up from the background-they looks very cold both, :)

I feel so very blessed ,being able to recieve all those wonderfull artpieces, from people I even don`t know, -
that ..all because of Jillayne, and her very big work.
I know how much she did,to make this a happy event,-and it surely was,-THANKYOU  dear Jillayne.
And THANKYOU to you five wonderfull artist that made  me sit here with this beautifull bunch of  christmas themed squares, to make my december even more joyfull.

Sending you all , many autumn gretings-
and big hugs and love.
