Time for family and friends!!!

Last week flew by and I'm sure this
week will do the same. 
Hope everyone has finished their
shopping. I'm not quite done
yet, but should finish 
in the next few of days.

As promised in my last post, I did finally finish 
Emma's 1st birthday (July 13) rug.
Of course, I don't have it bound yet, but
I am so glad to be finished. 
Pink is NOT my color.
Last Tuesday (Dec 13) was our monthly
rughooking gathering.
Everyone brought a handmade gift 
to play "dirty Santa".
I hooked a tree on wool and
filled it with greenery.
Jean got mine.
Sandra's back,Kay, Cynthia,Ann, & Ginger
Carol, CJ, & Jean
We had a wonderful day together
laughing and enjoying 
lots of food and fun
And I have to show you this Santa!!!
It was hooked by Carol.
Isn't it beautiful!!!!

I received some wonderful presents also
from my two bestest friends!!
 Sandra dyes the most beautiful colors.
Aren't these yummy!!!
Wonderful gifts from Ginger, too!!!
I forget to take a picture
but if you notice the striped fabric
in this picture, it it actually the
top of a light/ironing table.
 Ginger's husband built it
for me. 
I am one lucky girl to have such 
wonderful friends.

I am part of a wonderful group 
on eBay, AAPG. We do
secret Santa swap every year
and Kathy(Woolfind)
had my name. 
As you can see, Santa was very 
good to me and Emma.

Nick got home Friday(Dec 16) evening 
and we have been enjoying
time with him.
He was afraid Emma wouldn't remember him,
but she wasted no time in getting
him to color and read with her.
Oklahoma weather is so unpredictable.
It has been in the 50's and 60's
the last few days.
We have received some good
rains though which is
helping the drought situation.
Emma was enjoying the water puddles!!!

Have a great week and enjoy
the holidays with
family and friends.
