My group of crafting friends met last Saturday for the final time this year. We will start our get-togethers again in February 2016.  I think we all might suffer withdrawals in the meantime. 😀

Because we are crafters it is always exciting to see what others make, buy and have in their stash.

The first photos show the sweetest little pine cones I have ever seen. These, plus other goodies were a gift to us from one of the lovely ladies in the group.  Straight away I had to use a couple of them.


The next gift is so cute and dainty and was a hostess present.  Thanks once again to another ultra talented woman in the group.


…… and look what was inside – a beautiful had embroidered “mug rug”.  Whose a lucky girl then?


And the wonderful talented woman who made the next gift travels from Melbourne each month to be with us.  Now you can tell that it is a very special group can’t you.


This paper crafted Christmas Tree is not only pretty and clever but it holds 2 sweet stamps.  There was 1 tree for each in the group.  Special.!


Every one in the group brought a plate (with food on it 🙂 ) to share.  So with the addition of paper crafting we had a happy and creative day.

I would like to thank all the women in the group for another fascinating, educational and relaxing year of crafting and card making.

See you all again next year for another round of fun and friendship.
