Party day and the Ugly Fat quarter.

These girls are fantastic and I love them, they do look very innocent in this piccie but....... they can be very naughty..... trust me....... hehehehehe
I see that Teresa has beaten me to blogland but thats ok.

                              
Yes I know.... I'm the only silly one but there is   nothing like a cute set of antlers, the flower pot was a gift in the advent swap, I was just showing the girls how it wiggled.

                                                         The Ugly fat quarter story.

It arrived in our group sometime ago with 1 girl and then was passed on to another and so on, I was the last to get it so I made little finger pin cushions out of it so now we all have a piece of the ...... Ugly Fat quarter..... I guess you had to be there to see the funny side of it, as you can see the girls got a shock when they opened their gift boxes.




                              I made them open all at the same time and the laughter was so loud. 

                                                               Ta....da.....dah.....


I'm such a silly duffer though as I forgot to take photos of the gifts I gave and haven't yet taken any of the beautiful gifts I received but I will add them later.

Thanks girls for another fantastic day and I look forward to the new year ahead with you all as my stitching buddies.
