Our Sewing Groups Christmas Party

I packed my basket and headed off to Shelley's place for our Christmas break up this morning.  The year has flown by so quickly ...whew. I had a few more projects to finish off on the weekend but instead spent most of it sleeping. ( I think I caught  a sleeping bug ). Anyway it was a wonderful day and as usual Shelley was the perfect hostess and the table looked beautiful with all the swap presents and later food. Just a couple of pictures most of us are photo shy......

Last year carol dressed up as Santa this year she was Santa's little helper asking if we had been naughty or nice....soooo much fun.
  
Lots of pressies....



Happy stitching......
