Parties and a few finishes

Last Saturday we had a lovely Christmas dinner and party at church. I took a few photos early on and then forgot all about the camera. The food was great ( I helped make a warm vegetable salad) and it was a really lovely night. You were supposed to dress up a bit Christmassy and some of the outfits were amazing. I wish I had taken photos of some of the children. Here are Meryl (great hat!), Sue and Kathy all dressed up.
 The decorations were really good too.

Nice to see some lovely stitching too, on Tuesday at work. Anne has done a wonderful job making a decorated hanging from this wonderful panel. Looks so good. The stripy border works very well.
 If you look closely you can see that she has added beads and sequins to decorate the tree.

 Audrey also popped in the show me this lovely red quilt she has made for her little fellow's teacher. What a gorgeous gift!
 She also stitched the label!
 I am still doing a bit of Christmas stitching and here are two more of these little felt decorations.

 Today we headed to Gold Creek to Sweet Copper for high tea! The food was wonderful and it was just delightful sitting outside in the shade and chatting, eating and enjoying each other's company.

 Little Audrey was so good. She sat in her little high chair for the whole time. She is a good little eater! She even got her own little gift thanks to kind Sue!

 We had a secret Santa too and that was fun. Some of the gifts had gone by the time I remembered to take a picture....the bag had been overflowing.
 Here are some of the lovely gifts.

The ladies also donated a little extra money and we are purchasing some charity gifts for overseas as well.
