Irish Circles & Xmas Lunch


I have finally finished the centre for Irish Circles.





I have fallen in love with these baby circles.  They are only 3 inches in diameter.


Here it is all joined together.  It's not very big for all that work!  I still have a couple of borders to go though.....


We had our Friday Girls Christmas luncheon this week.  It was Marg's turn to be hostess and she did a lovely job.  The table looked so pretty (and the strawberry cider was pretty nice too).  We ate and laughed way too much and had a great day.


We exchange gifts each year and here is what I received.  There was also a home made pudding but it has already been cut up and sampled.  We all agree it is the best day of the year for us and this year did not disappoint.
