One of my favorite Christmas parties was last week. It is a genius way to swap gifts. First, we each made 5 of the same gift. As we arrived, the hostess let you know what Christmas theme you would be for the day (I was Rudolph). Once everyone was there and had oooed and aaaed over the decorations, and we had a very nice lunch, the game began.  We each selected 5 different themes from a box, and of course not your own. The hostess would call out say “Elf”. Elf would then collect her five gifts and all those who had selected “Elf” out of the box received that gift. It is really great fun.

Here we are ready for lunch.

Lynette made this cutie.

This one is from Mary.

How cute is this raw-edge applique from Nancy.

Another patriotic beauty from Carol.

I love my tote made by Robin.

This will work as a toiletry or a sewing tote.

Here is my contribution; it's a binding kit.

What a group of talented women. What a group of wonderful friends. What a fun party. Thank you Pat for hosting and making us all feel so special!

I hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,
