FNWF Times Two & CTTY Winner...

Why 'Times Two"?
Well I was lucky enough to have a two part Friday spent with friends...

Yesterday my Patchwork group got together for our Christmas lunch... While the food was nothing spectacular & the service was patchy, the quiet riverside location was really very pretty & of course I just so enjoyed spending the time with the ladies I've come to know since I joined them mid-year.
It was great to switch seats a couple of times, so in the end we all had the chance for a good chat to everyone else there...
We did a Secret Santa in which we do not find out who made the gift we receive... we each had to contribute a handmade item - be it food or fabric - & some amazing gifts were made... I received a delicious package of baked goods... yum!... Good thing the lunch was a good size or else I may have been munching something on the way home!
So that was part one of my Friday spent with friends...

And part two was of course our last FNWF in cyberland, hosted by wonderful Cheryll.
It was relaxing to sit in the evening & do a little more on my Redwork Noel...
The blob to the upper left will eventually become more recognisable as a bird, & the letters N & O have appeared. Not much done, but it all helps...
Thanks so much Cheryll for hosting us last night & indeed every month for this great cyber stitch-in... I love spending time over those weekends, visiting the blogs & seeing what the ladies got up to for their evening/day/weekend spent With Friends!
Pop over HERE to see the ladies who joined in; with nearly 50 ladies on the list, you're sure to see some great work...

Wow I only just realised that I have not announced a winner for CTTY from November... so sorry ladies!
~ Helen ~ Thank you for joining in...Please email me your postal address so I can get a little giftie in the mail to you - And thanks to the other ladies who also linked up!

This weekend I'll be spending some time putting up our Christmas tree & adding some Festive Season decorating to the house...

~ Have a Great Weekend!  ~
