Christmas Meeting, December2013

This month we held our Jacob's Join Christmas meeting and we decorated the hall with our pixies washing line started at the last meeting and completed at home [see below].

Then we talked and showed interesting items we had seen or bought at the Knitting and Stitching Show followed by a coffee break.
During the coffee break we voted for our favourite pixie outfit which was won by Denise.
Well Done Denise!
Our light hearted quiz this year was anagrams of embroidery words and caused much puzzling of brows.
Then it was time to eat the beautifully prepared food offerings and they were much enjoyed by everyone.

We then drew the bumper Christmas raffle where there were lots of prizes.
After a good meeting we wished each other a Happy Christmas and then went home.
