This coming Tuesday I will be back at Stitch by Stitch for the final time this year.  Hope to see some of you there… In the meantime…

Thursday was our guild Christmas party and we had wonderful show and tell, delicious potluck lunch and a great ornie exchange! Even Gord benefited as I took home some of the leftovers for him!  He was a happy guy and I was even happier because it meant no cooking!!!! Yeahhhhh
