Friday night, our doctors took us out to celebrate. We were celebrating the office manager's 20th anniversary. We had a wonderful dinner at Ocean Prime. A wonderful seafood restaurant in downtown Dallas. I had planned on coming home afterwards and getting ready for Saturday.. I had a Christmas party to go to early (around 10:00) and I needed to fix my dish to take. Well, that didn't happen! I came home and crashed. I set the alarm and got up early and cooked my food to take with me.
I went to my sewing guild Christmas party. There were fourteen of us that came and we had a great time. Good food and good friends getting together and chatting and celebrating. We played the Mr and Mrs Right game. We brought tea towels to exchange. Well, some of us brought tea towels and some brought white elephant gifts, I brought the knitted dish cloths. Anyway, it was fun to see who knows their right hand from their left. We had to stop a few times to let some catch up!!!
We ate lunch and then we exchanged gifts. We played the Chinese game. One person opens the gift and the next person can take it away or choose another unopened gift. I've been in the group for 4 years and I have tried to win a gift from my friend Cathey. She has been making the same thing for 9 or 10 years because everyone wants it...She makes a stuffed bunny sewing machine cover. Until we all have one, she will keep making them, or at least that's what she says! Anyway, I finally won her gift. I got it and held my breath the whole time during the gift exchange and the bunny came home with me! I was so excited. She is so cute and I'm so pleased she came to live with me and greet me every time I go to my sewing room. I did not take pictures but I will and show you later tonight....
Sunday afternoon, I decorated the house with all my Christmas quilts and we put up the tree. My grandkids are coming over tonight to eat supper with us and decorate the tree. This will be alot of fun tonight and I'll take pictures of my grandbabies and show you how big they now...
I didn't get any sewing done over the weekend but will be able to sew a little this week. I have a Christmas tablerunner to finish so I can put it out this week. I hope I get it done. The tablerunner is done except for putting the leaves all over it....I'll show you that later too. Until next time, happy sewing!
