Sunday Stitchers Christmas party

A fabulous end to our sewing year...and my first Christmas party for 2015.

My swap partner was Maree and I made her a mini wall hanging.

I thought I would camouflage the label....

My Swap present came from Noreen....and wow!  Look at all my goodies....a goody goody binding kit....with binding clips, scissors, a Christmas decoration and there was also a Nikki Tervo badge....

a gadget holder

All in lovely French General.  They are gorgeous - thanks so much Noreen.

Then  there were some extra personal gifts - Sandi made each of us a placemat/cutlery roll...and the cutlery is engraved with my name...just lovely and so useful on the day.

Some of the other personal gifts...a fabric bag holding some treats from Noreen, a yo-yo with a crochet edge from Marilyn, a folded star Christmas decoration from Helen, a pincushion on a jar from Teresa and a bucket of lollies and a decoration from Maree.   We were spoilt!!

And on top of all that....some gorgeous food...

We even had some reindeer visiting...(via the kitchens of Helen and De)

A lovely day - it's been a fun year - and we have fun stuff ahead for 2016 too.

And on top of that it was my Birthday weekend - so out for dinner on Friday night and Dinner cooked by DH on Saturday night (his yearly effort!!)

FNSI - November

I joined 43 other cyber lovelies - probably a lot of whom were doing secret squirrel stuff - like nothing really to show but here are a few bits I was using...

Go figure!!   (All will be revealed by mid December.)
Still lots to finish off for these goodies - hopefully I will be visiting at least a few cyber friends over the weekend.

Friday NIght with Friends - November

Happy Friday Night - quick dinner - watching Better Homes & Gardens and other mindless TV - finishing the binding on this:

It's my project from GDITC 2015- Lynette Anderson - with a change (of course...) - I omitted the stitched panels and used the fabrics from the kit around the centre hexie (which is the fabric from GDITC 2014).

I hope everyone else had a fun Friday night - possibly sewing "secret stuff"...
