WE HAD ...

.. the Christmas party at Beartown (Congleton) quilt group last night xx There were lots of folks .. and laughter.. and food...


every-one brings a contribution, even more was added after I took this x There is MORE than enough to go around xx Both sweet and savoury .. so something to suit all tastes

There were LOTS of entries for the challenge ...



the slippers at the back were the winners xx

All round a great night xx

THEN to-day the wonderful postman brought the first of my secret Santa parcels ...


all the way from Australia ..


I was allowed to open this little parcel..


with my tree ornaments in ...


How lucky am I xx This is a secret swap so I have to wait until THE DAY to find out who sent it xx

Keep smiling

Bristol Quilters had their Christmas meeting last night, but I forgot to take any pictures. How exciting to be able to open a parcel before Christmas.

Are they big stockings, or tree ornaments? Can't tell, but they're cute, as is the deer. I'm doing the SSS this year too.

An amazing spread, both the food and the entries. Your Christmas ornaments are great too.
