Christmas break-up with the girls...

 On Thursday I added the finishing touches to my gifts for our sewing group girls - Michelle, Heather, Barb and Wendy...

 Though we've only been able to meet up a handful of times throughout 2014 our annual Christmas break-up lunch at Palmetum Tea Rooms was not to be missed - except by our Wendy-friend who was off helping her beloved with a long distance work run. We hope to catch up with our dear Wendy early in the New Year as she was missed. x
The remaining four of us - Michelle, Heather, Barb and myself - gathered for coffee, cake, laughter, and a present exchange.

We had one secret swap where we made something extra special for our partner, and there were some smaller gifts for everyone.

Michelle made for Barb.
Barb made for Wendy (but she wasn't there)
Heather made for me.
I made for Michelle.
Wendy made for Heather (but she'll post the pressie to her)

Enjoy our pics.

A special day with very special friends.

I'll share my regular "20th of the month" Rosedaisy tutorial on Monday...

May you have a blessed weekend!
My husband is finally home and will no longer be a traveling man, so I'm going to enjoy every moment with him while we wait on God for 'what comes next'...



  1. Looks like a wonderful get-to-gether. Beautiful gifts too. (Just bought yr rose daisy pattern as my Xmas present. Have printed it out and my daughter is going to wrap it up for me and pop under the tree).

  2. It looks like wonderful fun, and such beautiful gifts! Someone knows you well, because I thought YOU had made the gift you received. =) It's too bad someone there couldn't have gotten a picture of all four of you together, but I love every picture you showed.
