Friends...

Yesterday our Monday sewing group had a break up party at the Tumbetin Tea Rooms.
The four of us have had the most wonderful year together, meeting every second Monday in each others' homes; eating, sewing, laughing, crying, loving.
Being friends.

After our morning tea we exchanged gifts, each of them handmade with love.
Here we all are with the framed stitchery that Michelle made for Heather - it has the year and all four of us girls stitched inside a red fabric frame. Gorgeous...


You see, we're all busy girls, so we each drew a name out of a hat and made one gift for the name on the paper.

This is what Heather made for Michelle - again, gorgeous...


This is the beautiful mug bag that Wendy made me! I was spoiled...


I made Wendy a wall hanging. It's based on one my 2010 designs (originally a cushion back then) but I love it as a wall hanging. Wendy loved it too...




We had such a lovely day!




 
I love my friends.

Visit Wendy and Heather for more pics later in the week. 

hugs
Jenny

Break up party? Does that mean you aren't going to meet any more? How sad! I've loved reading all your posts about the get-togethers, seeing what you were each stitching, and who brought what to eat. (And it's all about me, you know that!) The stitchery gifts are each unique reminders of a wonderful year - thanks for sharing those pics!
