Christmas Parties

My waist line is testament to how many Christmas functions I have been to over the past few weeks. It has been full on.
We had a lovely day at my friend Marleen's house, and such a beautiful lunch.  Marleen has her house decked out with all her Christmas wall hangings and all her Christmas craft.  It is a sight to behold and she is one clever lady.  I am blessed to have such wonderful friends.

I gave each of them a shoe bag to use when travelling, and some lavender scented shoe stuffers to match.  The shoe applique pattern was a free pattern from 'the four sisters' web page and the shoe stuffers are from a craft book I have had since the year dot.  It is from Better Living Collection and called Best Selling Food & Craft. I also put a couple of  surprises in their bags.  They gave me lots of goodies too.  Thank you 'girls'....

What a wonderful gift idea!!! I'm sure they loved them. You all look like you had such a nice time. I love friendships like that. My goal this year is to have friends over. Maybe I'll make them a gift for their visit. :)
