This is where I sat. Our hostess did a magnificent job of decorating the table.
And she gave us all a bunch of goodies too!
We played a gift exchange game. Whoever wanted to participate had to bring something handmade by them. This is what I made for the exchange. A pin cushion, thread/scrap catcher. I hope the recipient loves it as much as I love mine.
We sat in a giant circle and someone read a story over the microphone. Whenever we heard the word "left", we passed the gift we were holding to the left, and when we heard the word "right", we passed the gift we were holding to the right. It was a hoot! Then we went around the circle to show our gifts and tell who made them.
I got this adorable tote bag with Christmas colored mustaches on it. It's lined w/my favorite color and w/the same exact fabric I used to line a bag I made for myself!
Are you having any fun this holiday season?
Now it's your time to share about whatever you want.
Thank the Host
Everyone likes to hear "thank you" and know their effort is appreciated.
