December is the month for parties and gatherings. Last Friday I went to a very fun Gift Exchange that is relatively complicated to explain. But, I will do a quick rundown.
It started with a few appetizers and visiting. Then we had lunch. The hostess provided soup and salad greens. Everyone else brought something to add to the salad. YUM!
Once we were fed, the exchange began. We are a baker's dozen and we each brought five homemade gifts. There is a system in how they are passed out, and I won't go into that. But, just look at what I received.
Marie made this darling wall hanging.
Justine made this adorable Rabbit.
Mary this great Patriotic banner.
Bonnie made a darling ironing pad.
Pat embroidered these adorable tea towels.
As she handed them out she told us "The Rooster Crows, but, it's the Hen that delivers".
Here was my contribution, a tool caddy (pattern by Terri Adkinson can be found here). Not one, but two zippers.
Of course there was dessert and coffee after. We know how to do it up right!
What a great time with a group of lovely and talented ladies. Thank you each and every one of you!
Hope you have a good week and
