We had a lovely Christmas Day with all the family together this year.
Photos are a bit random and I'm not sure that I have a photo of everyone.
June, Rob, Kenny, Mel, Liz and Jake.
A few nibbles before lunch.
Clayton having a bit of fun with his glasses/straw.
I was feeling a bit tired by this point.
Whats a gathering without silly photos...... June and Corinne.......
and yes there is another of me......
Gavan and Heather
Heather with her daughters.... June and Corinne
Corinne and Kenny.
It was a lot of fun to see some very interesting gifts...... we all want to do it again next year.....
it makes buying gifts less stressful .... more fun and cheaper too..... bit more like the old days.....
I hope Christmas Day was a good one for you all too.
Our Christmas Swap for FIS was fun too this year, 5 small gifts using the word SANTA..... and 1 for under the tree. As soon as I found out Lynda was my secret partner I knew exactly what I would make.
S...... was Santa
Then the main gift, Lynda and I both have a love for Annie Smith dolls so I chose to make
Sugar Plum for her.
She is such a cutie and yes I already knew she liked her.
I pinched this photo from Lynda's facebook as it looks so cute framed.
This is the fun part of Lynda's pressie.
I had a lovely surprise on Christmas morning when Lynda rang to say how much she liked the gift.....
I so loved making these girls for you and I look forward to seeing them with bodies soon.
I felt so lucky to have received my gifts from Jo in the FIS group, they are so terrific and how did she know that I love Christmas ornies ?........ well done Jo.
Love this mini quilt Jo and to get the quilt frame too was fantastic so naturally I had to find just the right spot for it...... there was also this Stitchery pattern so that will have to go on the list for next year.
Thanks so much for my lovely gifts Jo...... love them......
I have a few more swap photos to show but I will pop back and show them tomorrow....
I think I need a Nanna nap now.
