At my house....

I must confess I've not spent much time at home lately. The different groups of which I'm a member, have been having their Christmas break-ups so I've been gobbling delicious treats, exchanging gifts and catching up with much loved friends.
My Wednesday sewing group had our Christmas party and gift exchange and this is what I made for Rosalie in our Kris Kringle swap.  It's a Marg Low pattern called 'For the Book Lover'.
Jacquie made this beautiful present for me.  She is a very talented glass artist and created these exquiste glass beads just for me.  I was absolutely thrilled.

The party was at Dianne's place and she was a fabulous host. Next Wednesday some of the group are off to The Patchwork Tea House in Warburton, which is a tradition in the group.

Don't forget to drop by Lou's place at Buttons by LouLou to see what our blogging friends have been doing.
