The annual ornament exchange!
All of the exchange ornaments are "disguised" in brown paper bags under our Charlie Brown tree
Best reaction from Bernie! She received Judie's ornament
Judie received Kathy's ornament she can't join us as she's on the road but she will often put an ornament in the exchange anyhow!
Sheila picked Sharon's ornament one of the most lovely ones stitched up
Anne received Beatrice's ornament, it was a big hit and we all want the pattern now!
Sylvia received my ornament! Will blog about it later
I got Ann's ornament!

As usual its over all too quickly, we all go home our separate ways and some of these lovely ladies I won't be seeing again for months, until the spring. Ann puts on a great retreat!
