Christmas Lunch Celebration

Our Needlework Group enjoyed a beautiful Christmas Lunch yesterday at the "Grapevine Cafe" in Batemans Bay!   Situated in the "Bushy's Bloomin Things" Nursery, we enjoyed a beautiful lunch, great friendship, and as you can see from my last post, some wonderful surprises!!    Here is one end of the table of ladies holding up some of the beanies we have made for our Australian soldiers!

And the other end of the table!  These beanies will be posted off next week to our service men and women!   Thanks ladies for all your efforts - it will certainly be appreciated when they reach their destination!

Some lovely gifts were exchanged - Sheila made this beautiful felt decoration!

My beautiful dessert - mango panacotta!   Mmmmmmm ....... delicious!!   A great day was had by all!  I am truly blessed to stitch with such a lovely group of ladies each Wednesday.   We are now in recess until the beginning of February to allow us all time to rest and enjoy the peaceful holiday season (and to give me time to start creating for next year!!)    A very happy Christmas to all my Needlework ladies and their families!
