Christmas Gathering

Every year at this time I hold my annual Christmas Gathering in store for any of my customers that would like to spend the day with myself and like minded friends. I supply them with a small kit that they can sit and hand stitch, while chatting, laughing, enjoying yummy food and just relaxing in the company of friends. Numbers were down a bit on last year, but we had 25 wonderful ladies who attended the day. Our project for the day was a cute ginger bread swag that I designed, as well as the stitching we enjoyed lunch in my garden and viewed some of the quilts, bags and dolls that were made by the ladies during the year.
Everyone was asked to bring along a hand made Christmas Decoration to go under the tree as a Christmas swap, there were some absolutey stunning decorations, many of them I have added to my to do list.
It is just my way of saying thank you to my valued customers and at the same time gathering together a wonderful group of ladies. We all had a great day, thanks to all those that visitored for the day, I enjoyed it greatly.
And a huge thank you to my parents who so kindly helped me out in the kitchen.
For all those that didn't make it, sorry you missed a terrific day, maybe we might see you here next year.
