Once again we kick off the Holiday Season
with Ross Griffin's Christmas Gift Exchange
We all make 8 handcrafted gifts and get together
at someone's home to eat, laugh,drink,laugh and
select 8 gifts to take home .
This year I hosted the party and we had a blast!
Be sure to read Part 2 after this to view the videos
I made during the party!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
wrapped up in a cute bowl
and topped with a hand quilted ornament
all our goodies on or around the table.... The first item I chose was the lighted and decorated
little tree in the background.
Sheila Wilson brought the trees......
it was difficult to choose.... Kathy Reilly made these quilted fish-they didn't last long! We all had such a good time- seeing friends we haven't seen since the last party....time flies...
obviously having a great time!
Sheila making her choice....
Julie Reilly made these very clever carriers
for hot or cold dishes....
Linda Graham also chose one of the food carriers...
Nanette and Jeanie trying to choose....
while Becky selects one of Chris Nolde's grocery bags.
Valerie chose one of Linda Grahams knitted mufflers...
very popular gift....actually everyone's gifts were
so creative .... it made it hard to choose...
she hand painted glass plates and made gingerbread
cookies using Swedish cookie cutters...cute little horses..
All in all - we all had a great time-thanks everyone !!!!
