KQ Girls Wrap Up

Another Christmas Party!!

This is a smaller group I go to in the Wynnum area.  We decided this year we would each make a bon-bon and fill it with 5 sewing related things.

Here is the collection:

This is the one I received:

I love it - I use blue & silver in one area of my house 
for Christmas decorations - it is made from organza.

and here is the one I made:

A few of the girls make a small present for everyone:

A lovely handmade card with a quilted fabric tree, and a hexie decoration
A hand towel for the kitchen.
And a bookmark:

For most of the day we wore those as decorations...(not a mad bunch at all!)

I have planned a "veg out and read" day during my Christmas break - so this will be very handy.

We had a lovely time - plenty of chicken, salads and pudding to eat.  We even played games and we each received a surprise present - a handy storage box.
So that is the end of another fun year...
