Stitchers Inc Christmas Party

On Sunday we had a wonderful day, celebrating Christmas and catching up with everyone in our stitching group. 
It was so much fun - I love it when we can all get together and catch up. It is a wonderful group of ladies.
Lots of  delicious food to share. 
Lots of Bon Bon fun - never too old are we? Myself and Noela - (great action shot there Sandi!)
Marilyn and Susan face off!
Noela and Maree (I'm thrilled with this photo as Maree always seems to take lots of photos, but never seems to be in any of them. Got you this time Maree!) 
Helen, Noela and Sandi - my traveling buddies! 
We all received lots of lovely surprise gifts. So many thoughtful, generous ladies in this group. Chocolates (in a sweet little paper envelope), more chocolates with a cute tree ornament, Bon bons full of fabric, wine glass charms (or earrings as they became known and wornthroughout the party!!), a gorgeous gold embroidered angel and a very clever folded fabric star ornament. We were very spoilt. 
We also had a secret Santa swap for the day. This is my gorgeous present from Susan. I was absolutely over the moon with my gift. 
This little mug bag that Susan has made is very special and I love it. There is more to this present and more photos which I will share in the next post.....
It was full of goodies too. Thank you so much Susan for all the trouble you went to, to make this. It is beautifully made and will be treasured. 
De with her gorgeous present from Tatyana. Don't you just love the fabric in De's top.... Hexagons! 
I love this table runner that Marilyn made. 
There were so many wonderful, beautifully-made presents. 
I couldn't end without a picture of the lovely Helen in her antlers and rudolf nose. If took a few tries to actually get a photo as the nose lit up! Her earrings were flashing the whole time too. Doesn't she look cute!  Ha ha! 
It was a really wonderful day and I'm so glad we all got to go. The Christmas spirit has started off well this year and is in full gear already. Nothing like a party as fun as this to get you in the spirit. 
Thank you to everyone who came and made the day so special. A massive thanks to Maree for organising us and the venue and making it all happen. Thank you too for all the little gifts and a HUGE thank you to Susan for my present. I'll be back to show you what I received. It's very special and needs it's own post. Have a wonderful day 
Teresa xx
