The day started with an Angel making workshop, and ribbon, glitter and sewing equipment soon covering the tables. Penny and I supplied the kits. Much laughter ensued, when ribbon was sewn on the wrong sides and one angel was pirouetting as wings did not meet body in the right place!
|Eyes down to make angels and cover the house in glitter!|
Yes there was even glitter found its way to the loo!
|What a great display of angels|
This was followed by "show and tell".
|Santa has been busy|
|Jenny's wonderful Christmas Tree|
|Penny's Debbie Mumm blocks and machine embroidered block for a lucky Linus child.|
|Shirley's crocheted shrug should keep her nice and warm this winter|
|If the shrug is not enough the hot water bottle cover will help!|
Each of us having purchased eight £2 gifts, a FQ and a £5 gift plus writing eight cards the fun started.
|Much laughter opening our £2 gifts|
|Love all the different wrapping|
Next we played the Right/ Left game with FQ's. I read the story as quickly as I could to add to the mayhem.
I found a new version of the dice swap game, which we played with the £5 gifts we had all supplied. First you needed to throw a six to take a gift, when everyone had a gift they were opened and then 6 rounds of throwing the dice meant every time you threw a six you had to exchange your gift with someone else. It is always funny how there is something everyone wants!
What a brilliant fun way to start the Christmas festivities with all my crafting friends.
