and an after Christmas get together.

Last night four of my stitching buds and myself got together for our usual Friday night stitching. We decided to have a little after Christmas celebration too.

We were going to order chicken dinner from a local restaurant but they were closed for the Christmas holiday. So we had to go to plan B, which was our favorite pizza place. My DH went and picked up the pizza and we had a great time eating and talking. We also had a small cookie potluck. It was really great to spend sometime with great friends after all the Christmas hubbub.

Then I received two of my ornaments from the Christmas Ornament Swap I am in. They were hand delivered by Jill and Cathy.

First Jill stitched this ornament from the Gift of Stitching Magazine. It's the "Stitch" Christmas tree. Jill did a wonderful job.

Then Cathy came with this lovely ornament. She stitched a Mary Garry ornament. She also did a wonderful job. But she did have to take it home and perform a bit of surgery, as she had to redo the hanger and put my ornament right side up!!! We all had a good chuckle.

Thank you Jill and Cathy. I love both these ornaments.

All in all we had a great time and even got some stitching done between all the fun!!

Now time for some stitching for the evening.

Those ornametns you got look really great. I had already seen them on Cathy's and Jill's blogs. And had read about hat ornie surgery, lol.

Those stitch-ins with friends are always such a pleasure, aren't they?

That is real sweet, that your friends brought those adorable ornies in person!
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and your family!
