The party included 14 members and four guests; members present were Noma, Janice, Leanna, Lugene, Betty Lou, Sharon, Anne, Sue, Lois, Jana, Sheila, Jan, Sug, and Judy. Guests included Sug's daughter Cathy, and Chris Floyd with her daughter and a friend. A wonderful buffet lunch was enjoyed at about 11:30 a.m. and following some social time the ornament exchange was held. Below are some pictures of the special gifts members who participated received ...
|Sug McClain holds the hooked stocking she made ... everyone loved this one!|
|Jan received this cute Santa tree ornament.|
|Here's another stocking ornament made from patchwork wool and stuffed with seasonal décor.|

|This cute wool snowman will look great on the Christmas tree!|
|This crocheted necklace will "ornament" the neck of one of our Vincennes hookers.|
|Everyone ohhh-ed and ahhh-ed over this beautiful hand-woven miniature basket ornament. Now we all want to learn how to make one!|
|Here's an adorable table top decoration made from a huge pine cone; Sheila received this one.|

Everyone enjoyed the day and we finally started drifting away after 1:30, going our separate ways with hugs and wishes for the Merriest of Christmases and a very good 2016. And we wish the same to you, too!
