Last week, the sewing group had a holiday party with a carry-in lunch and a gift exchange. The exchange was fun with a friendly chatter and a few gifts changing hands several times. To begin, we drew numbers; the first person selected a wrapped package and unwrapped it. The next person could "steal" the opened gift or select another wrapped package. If your gift was stolen, then you could steal another gift or pick an unwrapped gift. As more gifts were unwrapped, the stealing began in earnest, and gifts changed hands many times.
I am thrilled with my "stolen ladies" - a collection of five blocks, dyed by Nancy L. and made into a table runner.
The runner adds color to my sofa table by the garage door, and welcomes me into the house when I return. It makes me smile to see it there.

Thank you, Nancy L. for this gorgeous table runner! It's so beautiful, I don't know how you could bare to part with it.
