This past Sunday was my EGA chapters Christmas Party which is a Tea Cup Auction. Sunday was also my birthday so it was a fun birthday party for me!! though no one knew. My birthday has always been lost due to Christmas parties and preparations - so I always consider the month of December my special Birthday Month not just a day. Cards and gifts do arrive at various times during the month so it is a fun and different way to celebrate!!
Below is a free little gift from Fern Ridge - both of the designers are members of the guild so every year they bring a basket with a kit for all of the members - this is very special and very much appreciated.
Below is a little stool which I got because my ticket was pulled.
A top view - this has now become a favorite sitting place for the cats!!! are we surprised.
Also, had my name pulled to receive this neat stitching cabinet.
Looks pretty nice in my house - do you agree!?
The above items plus several others are flea market, yard sale finds by one of the lady's husband. He love to find thinks for us 'stitching' gals and we all look forward to his finds. Last year I was lucky to get a quilt rack that he had found.
Below is a little basket which will be fun to paint and then line with fabric.
a scissor fob and scissors
A sewing bag with pincushion
The sewing bag closed
A beautiful hand woven scarf

So you see how fun my birthday month can be. Next weekend is two more stitching parties. Everyone helps me celebrate.
To all who have a December birthday - enjoy the season as a total celebration.
