Christmas Parties

What a lovely couple of days I have had - celebrating the end of our Needlework year with all my ladies!    This is always a fun time of year for all of us as we celebrate our year of stitching and friendships!   And my Wednesday ladies totally knocked my socks off this morning when they presented me with a beautiful quilt to say thank you for the year!  I was overwhelmed and moved to tears and it is just so gorgeous!  I really appreciate the work that has gone into the quilt and I love the colour (I'm a bit of an orange person!)   So to those of you who are reading .... many thanks again for your kindness and generosity - I am overwhelmed by such a beautiful gift and will treasure it always!    The colours haven't really come out as well as they should but on a sunny day I will take another photo to share!

Here are the Tuesday night ladies all enjoying our celebration dinner last night!    We had lots of laughs, a beautiful meal and some lovely gifts were shared!   Here is everyone holding up their gifts they received on the night!

This was a really cut little gift made by Cheryl and lucky Maree picked this one out of "Santa's" stocking!

And this was my little decoration I made for today's party - adapted from a pattern in the 2010 Cross Stitch Ornaments magazine!   It has found a lovely home at Sandra's house!
