I know…I know… Christmas was over more than a week ago and it’s now 2010, but I needed to share the gift exchanges from the party.
We always either make or buy the same gift for everyone. We used to make them, but as we’ve gotten
older busier we seem to take to local stores or the internet for our purchases.
This is what I got for everyone.
Patty got each of us these adorable snowman pictures.
Cathi gave us each a treenware bowl with a berry ring and candle. (you might want to click on the picture to get a better look)
Marsha MADE these adorable little quilts and also gave us the little wooden Christmas tree that I’m holding.
And how old is she?
Third times the charm. By the way…that’s Patty, our resident comedian!
So, then it was on to our Secret Santa gifts. We draw names earlier in the year and keep our eyes and ears open for hints from our “person”.
Patty drew my name and made me this adorable snowman that she framed. It was too big for me to get on the plane so I’ll have to pick it up the next time we drive to Calif. I was so bummed because I really wanted to take it home!
Marsha got this gorgeous treenware bowl with berries and a candle from Cathi.
Janet got this wonderful snowman and quilt that Marsha made for her. She was quite overcome with emotion.
I gave Patty some spools, sheep, a wool penny rug kit, and a stitchery pillow that I got from Karen at Farmhouse Woolens.
And Cathi got all this loot from Janet. Janet made the darling gingerbread wall hanging. (her own design).
We also got stockings but I didn’t get a picture of them. I think we were just so wound up that I forgot.
The party lasted until the wee hours of the morning. I think it broke up about 2:00am. We have so much fun. laughing, eating, sharing gifts, eating, playing games, eating… LOL I think you get the picture.
Thanks girls…I love you all!
