Bloggers Group Xmas Party

Today I went to our blogger group's Xmas party break-up at Garden City.  As always we had a great time with lots of eating, talking and a little stitching on the side.
We had a Secret Santa Swap also and the person who was to receive my gift was Sandi.  Below is what I made. A Christmas wall hanging and a bon bon with chocolates.


The bonbon has a Theadora button on it.
I received my gift, beautifully wrapped,  from Teresa. It was a lovely table runner containing some pretty Xmas fabrics and stitcheries.

Thank you so much Teresa I love the runner and the little Xmas Angel ornament. My space sure looks messy doesn't it? We all got a few extra bits and pieces too.
A bon bon with fabric & wine glass markers, some choccies, a little lace angel , a felt star with more chocolates  & a fabric star ornament. Thank you to all the wonderful ladies who gave these extra goodies.
Below are some photos of the day.
Everyone catching up, lots of secret gifts, lots of delicious food.
Just a few of the secret gifts.
A big Thank You to Maree who organized the day, we all had a wonderful time. All too soon it was time to head home so I will close with a photo of our fun loving Helen, wearing flashing Santa earrings and a Rudolph nose.
Teresa, Sandi and I all came with Helen so the fun didn't stop till we arrived home. Thank you for the lift Helen,  very much appreciated.
Till next time........ Happy Stitching............
