One of our traditions is to make gifts for each other. Well, it started out that way, and now we’ve relaxed a little and store bought gifts are sometimes in the mix.
As I told you yesterday, Patty is our resident cross stitcher. Look what she made each of us. She also got us the big letters for our houses. (kinda hard to see in the picture..look under the cross stitch)
Janet made these darling pillows. She used a Buttermilk Basin pattern.
Marsha made these cute snowmen quilts.
That’s Patty being our funny man (woman)!
I made these little wall hangings and included the star quilt hanger. It's a Buttermilk Basin pattern.
Cathi’s tradition is to give us all next year’s calendar. This year she also included letters for our houses. Can you believe that both Cathi and Patty got us letters? Hmmm, must be the “new” decorator item!
I can’t leave you without my traditional Panera Bread restaurant picture. Since we don’t have one in Bend, OR, the girls are always gracious about indulging me with my cravings. A stop at Panera happens right after I land (and maybe the next day too! French Onion soup is always my “go to” item from the menu. I haven’t tried anything else because I get there so seldom that I need my soup fix. LOL
We went to a couple of antique shops when I got there. Look what I got….Score! I had been looking for a black scale for quite awhile. Finally found one! Patty let me borrow her décor for staging the picture. Ha ha.
So that’s it for another year of our Christmas party. We always have so much fun. Thanks girls for everything!
Hope you enjoyed the pictures...even thought they were a bit late!
Tomorrow is show and tell time at Woolies for Sandy and me and our monthly projects. See you later in the week with the pictures.
