Sunday Stitchers Xmas Party 2014.

Last Sunday I attended our final Sunday Stitches for the year. We had a wonderful Xmas Party with lots of good company and fantastic food.

Here we all are  ready for our party.
I only managed to do about half a dozen stitches to the stitchery I was working on as there far too much laughing and frivolity going on. Then it was time for the birthday fat quarters. This month three of us had our birthdays.  I was really looking forward to it. It was exciting to open all the parcels and see the fabrics the others girls had chosen for us.
Myself, Helen in the middle and Susan
Here are my fabrics. I love them all. Maree put her fabric and some thread in a mason jar and Teresa made the fabric into a cupcake. I don't think I will undo it even though I want to use the fabric. Thank you to everyone for my beautiful fabrics.

We also had Secret Santa and I received mine from De. It came in this little port.

A little Xmas cushion, some chocolates and this beautiful girl, made with the tiniest of stitches and looking too cute for words. De was making one of these a while ago and I said to her jokingly she could make me one in blue, then she pulled my name out for Secret Santa. How lucky was I? Thank you so much De, I love all the gifts you gave me but my little elephant will always be extra special.
My gift was made for my friend Susan.
A strippy table runner, a Xmas ornament and  a reindeer sweet dish filled with chocolates. Glad you liked them Susan.
We all exchanged beautiful gifts and I did take a few photos, along with some show and tell of the projects worked on through the year but I will leave that for another day .
Till next time Happy Stitching.............
