Party Time

Tuesday night's holiday party for my EGA chapter was great fun. Everyone got a table favor--mine is below. It was filled with chocolate kisses and floss for stitching. There was also a giveaway to one lucky winner at each table--various gift certificates were the prizes.I also received some lovely gifts from friends: This luggage tag was stitched on finer linen than I can see. I love the quiet colors and traditional design. I think it's going to hang in my office for now.I love this sparkly holiday temari ball from World Embroideries. She is so very ambitious!Here is a Brazilian embroidery ornament from a good friend--she used a pattern book from the 70s for the design. Many many techniques were featured in the gifts and ornaments exchanged at the party. I was great fun to see what everyone was getting!My draw in the ornament exchange was the charming embroidery below--I got a bonus. I adore the little beaded ornament that was in the bag with the ornament. I am so very lucky! They were made by Karol of Rosebud's Stitching. The room where we had our dinner was beautifully decorated and looked out over snow covered fields. This is the best start to the holiday season possible!
