I'm not certain where December went, but just in advance of our meeting tomorrow, I thought I'd put up some photos from our Christmas meeting.
We had a members' day, which is a really lovely opportunity to meet other members of the group and have a good chat whilst sharing a love of stitch.

This year we had a mini 'round robin' where we all worked a small part of an embroidery before it was passed on to the next person at the table to add the next element.
To add a little extra challenge, each table was only allowed to use one stitch, so versatility and creativity were called for.

It wasn't all hard work!
There was cake - both fruit and sponge varieties, together with a bran tub and raffle, and the Christmas Competition.
This year the theme was 'A Christmas Parcel' and was won by Jose.
